Sage BASS Series Fly Fishing Rods

290 Grain BASS

330 Grain BASS

Bass on a fly rod? Absolutely, and it’s all thanks to the gang of geeky fly rod designers at Sage! Jerry Siem was the mastermind behind the development of Sage’s rough and ready trio of 7’1″ tournament legal Bass Series Fly Rods. These short sticks are precision-tuned rocket launchers that can land a whopper of a hair frog on the glassiest water without disturbing a single lily pad. These rods are specially designed to sling big bugs, battle heavy wind, and rip giant fish from structure. Each rod in the series includes a carrying case and a specially matched Sage Bass Fly Line to optimize the performance loading of the rod. These bad boys aren’t only for bass lovers, though. Use ’em in the mangroves for snook and baby tarpon or take ’em pike or muskie fishing!

Sage BASS Series Fly Rods Recap

After working with a small, tight-lipped group of serious bass anglers, we’ve developed three rods that can drop a hair frog or an air-light diver with pinpoint accuracy and hardly a ripple on the water. From a fly fishing perspective, we’re talking about effortlessly pushing big, wind-resistant bugs into tight quarters. Available in three models, Bluegill (new this year), Smallmouth and Largemouth, rods measure 7’11”, which slides them just under the strict bass tournament rules for rod length. Additionally, both rods are sold with custom bass taper flylines and a travel case for protection.

When used outside the bass fishing world, we strongly recommend them for probing the mangroves or throwing huge flies for pike and muskies.
