Speaker: Karin Miller
Topic: Tenkara: Different Destinations, Different Species
Karin Miller is the owner 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 the ancient Japanese method. Zen has a reputation of being innovative, cutting edge and pushing boundaries with their high performance rods. Together, they’re defining “American tenkara”.
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, she’s chasing different fish species or attempting to explode her rods and find the next adrenaline rush. She’s lived in Colorado since 1999 and is originally from South Florida.
Extension Cords and Power Strip Drive
We had a break in at our storage unit, and are in desperate need of extension cords and power strips. (those Chili Supper crock pots all need power!). You can bring them to the October Chapter Meeting.
