The Sage Approach fly rod combines the great feel and accuracy of a high end Sage fly rod, with an affordable, budget friendly price tag. No matter if you are a first time beginner or a seasoned fisherman looking for a back-up, the Approach will fit the bill well and won't drain your wallet.
Designed with Graphite 3 technology, this is a rod that features many of the great properties of other higher end Sage rods. The Approach has a medium-fast action, and is designed as a fly rod that can serve a wide range of purposes. In small sizes, such as a 7' 3-weight, the Approach is a blast to fish on small creeks and situations where distance is overshadowed by presentation.
In traditional trout sizes, such as the 590-4 and 690-4, this rod is capable of delivering tight loops with a long leader and tiny dry flies, or, with the proper line-setup, can turn over big nymph rigs and punch big dry flies into the wind. When moving into the heavier rods, such as the 890-4 and 990-4, the angler will be impressed with the power and accuracy the Sage Approach provides. Because of it's medium-fast action, the rod loads quickly with a shooting head style line to chuck big trout streamers to the banks or punch out a little extra distance for long shots at saltwater fish.
As with all Sage Fly Rods, the Approach is built with high quality components that lead to increased longevity of the rod. The Approach features ceramic stripping guides, and hard chrome plated snake guides. In Freshwater sizes, the rod has an Ebony wood reel insert and an anodized aluminum reel seat. Additionally, the grip is a reverse half-wells style premium cork grip. The Saltwater friendly sizes utilize an anodized aluminum reel insert and reel seat. The grip is a traditional full-wells style premium cork grip.
