Gear: Zen Suzume “Sparrow” Tenkara Rod

MSRP: $229.99

From the Zen Fly Fishing website:

“This little pocket rocket is poised to take over Rocky Mountain National Park and other areas with tight streams and close quarters. Suzume is a tri-zoom rod fishable at 7.7’, 9.3’ and 10.8’ giving you “compactability” and accessibility, all in one tool. Suzume is a 6:4 flex with a medium-fast action. It features an 11” tapered handle that ensures that the rod is well balanced and prevents that tip-heavy feel common in other manufacturers. It also gives you enough room and options to find your own personal “sweet spot” for individualized comfort. Suzume rounds out Zen’s current rod offerings to give you a whole spectrum of tools to choose from for your next fishing adventure.”
