Deerhair splashing through lily pads. Crayfish bumping and rattling along stony drop-offs. Streamers the size of your forearm slinking through shallow weed beds. Though warmwater fly fishing may at times require finesse, it’s about as far from subtle as one can get with a fly rod, and that’s exactly the point. This is fishing that rewards loud, splashy presentations, because when the water hits 70 degrees, loud and splashy means dinner time.
The ARBOR XL is built for taming fast fish that are as likely to come straight at you as they are to run away – be it a Henry’s Fork rainbow, a South Andros bonefish, a chrome bright Bristol Bay silver, or anything in between.
MULTI-APPLICATION / FAST ACTION
R8 Core is a rod family focused on maximum versatility and applies new revolutionary material technology through our forward thinking lens of what we’re seeing out on the water where one rod needs to show even greater range. At its Core, R8 Core traces a direct lineage to Sage’s multi application vision, one shaped by the fishing evolutions happening all around us—from habitats we stalk and waters we frequent, to the flies we fish and the diversity of species we now target.
Saltwater reels built to cover the entire spectrum of fly fishing applications from Bonefish to Marlin and anything in-between. Just select desired line weight and feature set for your application.
At Sage, craftsmanship is our people. We’re not a big faceless factory, but rather a workplace of craftspeople who design and build the world’s best fly rods and reels using our hands and hearts. We do it by sharing ideas and always asking the next question to find what can be done to make this better. Our rods are built one at time right here on Bainbridge Island, WA, following hundreds of meticulous steps and passing through 23 sets of hands. Our reels are also designed right here, and then precision-crafted with exclusive USA carbon to tolerance only Sage can deliver. We’re out there fishing the same places in the same unforgiving conditions that you are. Craftsmanship is applied experience. Lifetimes of it.
