CLOSER TO NATURE.
CLOSER TO PEOPLE.
From an angling perspective, every individual who has owned and enjoyed using Shimano tackle has a reason to thank a Japanese visionary named Shozaburo Shimano, who in 1921 declared “I aim to make Shimano’s products the best in Kansai, then the best in Japan and finally the best in the world.” For over 80 years, Shimano has concentrated on precision engineering, one step at a time. At Shimano, our goal is to design rods and reels that can add to the fun and enjoyment of fishing. For some, it’s that exciting adventure battling creatures of the deep. For others, it’s the relaxing communion with nature on a quiet stream or river. No matter what you pursue or where, you can count on Shimano.
