Sage Fly Fishing Products
Sage was founded in 1980 with one idea in mind — to build the world's finest performance fly rods. Innovative rod design and the use of world-class materials helped Sage revolutionize the fly fishing world throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Now, more than 20 years later, Sage remains focused on one goal: to create fly fishing products that continually exceed the fly angler's expectations.

|Tips for Selecting a Sage Fly Fishing Rod
Determine the species you will be pursuing and the size and type of flies you will be using. Generally, lighter line weights are for smaller flies and fish; heavier line weights are for larger flies and fish.
Decide what type of rod action you prefer. Sage offers medium to fast action rods to suit many different types of anglers. Refer to the rod series chart below.
Determine the type and size of water you will be fishing. Generally, shorter rods are used on smaller spring creeks and streams; longer rods are used in larger rivers, lakes and saltwater locations.
