Zen Tenkara

Delivery 5-7 working days

The Zako Tenkara Fly Fishing Rod is the “work horse” of our tenkara fly rod line-up. It’s the perfect all-around tenkara fly rod and handles a broad range of fly fishing situations – from small brook trout to large, fat, brown trout. At only 19” long you never have to leave home without this telescoping fly rod. The Zako Tenkara Fly Rod is 12ft long when extended and has a 6:4, medium-fast action flex. The Zako is comparable to a regular 5wt fly fishing rod. No reel makes for a quick and streamlined set-up. Spend more time on the water and less time setting up and breaking down your fly rod. Includes spare tip, fly rod sock and hard travel rod tube. Pair with the Performance Tip for a faster action (sold separately). This tenkara fly rod will cover most scenarios and everyday fishing, even if you hook into something bigger than you were expecting. Fly Rod Approximate Equivalency (FRAE): 5wt

Not Spey and Not Tenkara

This rod is neither a tenkara rod or a spey rod. It’s too big and clunky to cast tenkara style for trout in the headwaters and it doesn’t have a reel so it can’t shoot line for spey fishing. False advertising from the manufacturer who clearly knows nothing about both Tenkara or Spey fishing. Bummer.

I took this fishing rod (9' #10)for a two week trip to the Kola Peninsula in the hunt for salmon. She gave me the fight of my life! Rod minimizes the attempts of the salmon to escape, but I still lost her. Great fishing rod!!!

Awesome choice for bonefish

I used this reel for bonefish and it worked great. It is super light and easy to use on the flats.

Love it!

This is an absolutely awesome fly reel! It's build like a tank and will last several lifetimes. It looks stunning on bamboo rods, but while a bit heavier than the modern aluminum counterparts, it balances nicely during casting. The line included with the reel is a high quality Scientific Anglers Mastery line in the weight of your choice. If you've got a few extra bucks to invest in a fine reel, this is the one!

Pretty much bullet proof

I have owned my 811 for about 4 years now and have put it through the mill. I am not the most graceful of people, I have dropped it on several occasions, smacked it up against rocks, even dropped my rod in the river as it rolled down the current and ended on the bottom of a deep pool. We fished it out and it wasn't even dented! Love this reel!
