1pm to 2pm with Q&A
Karin Miller is the owner and CEO of Zen Tenkara/Zen Fly Fishing Gear, a Colorado company that designs, manufactures and sells a broad range of tenkara fly rods, lines and accessories. Her company, since its start in 2012, is revolutionizing this fixed-line method and is known for creating a “fusion” of traditional fly fishing and tenkara to target not only small traditional tenkara species, but also large, powerful fish not typically associated with this ancient Japanese method. Karin Miller at the helm of Zen, has a reputation of being innovative, cutting edge and pushing boundaries with her high performance tenkara rods. Together, they’re defining “American Tenkara”. Come out to Bears Den January 11, 2020 at 1:pm to meet Karin and hear her presentation:

“Tenkara: Big Fish Landing Techniques and the Range of Possibilities”
Meet the woman who’s used tenkara to land bonefish, shark, barracuda, permit, tarpon, carp, grayling, sockeye, chum, king and silver salmon, blue fin and jack crevalley. She travels the globe to chase species and challenge the concept of fixed-line fly fishing and her Zen Tenkara fly rods.

Karin travels extensively both in and out of the US to test rods, present, train guides and give demos. If she’s not in the office answering emailed questions to guide adventure seeking tenkara anglers, she’s chasing different fish species or attempting to explode her rods and find the next adrenaline rush. Originally from South Florida, she’s lived in Colorado since 1999 is married to a “Fischer”, has a stepdaughter, one son and five crazy dogs.
