However, you may want to read on for the quick and dirty of each rod family…along with a quick blurb about how we like using each rod model.
SAGE SALT $595
The SALT has been a long time shop favorite for big game and saltwater species. From trout streamers to adult tarpon, this rod family has more backbone than most when it comes to landing monsters. All 9 foot.
- 6 Weight – An absolute favorite streamer boat rod for trout. Skinny water bonefish, snook, and redfish. Smallmouth and carp.
- 7 Weight – Prime for Golden Dorado, bass, big streamers and sink tips. A favored Florida backcountry stick. Carp wrangler and monster rainbow/mouse fly champ.
- 8 Weight – The magic saltwater model: bonefish, baby tarpon, snook, reds, jacks, seatrout. Dorado, monster bass, large carp, pike. A shop favorite for striped bass wade fishing.
- 9 Weight – Our pike rod of choice. A gamer for permit, juvenile tarpon, stripers, monster bonefish, peacock bass, etc.
- 10 Weight – When you have a 10 weight, options grow: tarpon, permit, pike, musky, king salmon, trevally , anything big…
- 11 Weight – John’s favorite tarpon rod, ever. Also great for Pacific Giant Trevally (at Christmas Island), and THE musky rod.
- 12 Weight – Nothing less should be used when going for tarpon over 100 pounds. Same for the biggest GTs. And sharks.
SAGE BOLT $455
The BOLT was built with heavy headwinds, long casts, and high line speed in mind. For those who like their presentations served up quick, the BOLT is the answer. All 9 foot
- 5 Weight – Big dries launched at the bank from a boat, still water streamers, or super long casts for super spooky trout- this defines the ultra-fast 5 weight.
- 7 Weight – Large streamers, sink tips, and big wind no problem for this 7. Also a fantastic rod for bonefish, reds, snook and bass.
- 8 Weight – The fastest 8 weight made to cast into the wind for pike, bass, bones, baby tarpon, golden dorado, redfish, and stripers.
SAGE ACCEL $455
The pinnacle of Sage’s Generation 5 graphite technology. A medium-fast action rod that is absolutely perfect for trout.
9 foot 3 Weight – Not often do many consider a 9 foot rod for a 3 weight. This is one that should be considered. A fantastic rod for nymph rigs to picky fish. We really dig this rod for the Piedra and Upper Dolores rivers.
Sage GRACE Outfit $595
An amazing 5 weight outfit crafted from Graphite IIIe technology, the GRACE comes with a Pink RIO Gold line and Sage 3200 series reel. The Iridescent Pink GRACE offers a fast action with a soft feel, resulting in a responsive, comfortable casting experience. Plus, Sage will donate $50 from the sale of each GRACE outfit to Casting for Recovery; a non-profit organization dedicated to giving women vital tools to overcome the challenges of breast cancer.
Sage 4200 Series Reel
The 4200 series reel has been one of our favorite lightweight trout years for a few years now. Great for balancing out modern fly rods, the 4200 also boasts Sage’s overbuilt drag with one revolution drag knob and indexed drag settings. This is an absolutely fantastic deal on a long-lasting and proven fly reel
