Sage introduces three all-new rods for 2019 New task-focused rods for task-focused anglers
Just in time for EFFTEX, Europe’s largest fly fishing trade show, Sage has announced three all-new rod models for 2019. Two of these new models are specifically trout-focused rods, with the third aimed at anglers who fish large flies and heavy rigs for larger freshwater species (think bass, pike and musky).
The new TROUT LL is Sage’s newest presentation-focused trout rod and will replace the MOD in Sage’s lineup. Available in weights 3 to 6 and lengths ranging from 7’9” to 9’, the TROUT LL features a moderate action aimed at anglers who fish mostly smaller flies on light tippets and at close distances. According to Sage, the TROUT LL’s design allows it to “maximize tippet protection yet have a smooth, easy-loading mid-section to increase feel and feedback throughout the casting stroke,” giving the rod a “delicate touch and medium action” that make it “a dry fly anglers dream.”
Retail pricing on the TROUT LL is $800.
