If your thing is tailwater trout or drifting for anadromous steelhead and salmon, you just found your dream rod. This rod is specifically designed for fishing multiple-fly or indicator rigs. The 99 series is designed so it loads lower down the blank for a softer action that allows for a slightly slower line speed, more open loop and fewer tangles when casting multiple flies. Conversely, the tip actually has greater stiffness to ensure that it doesn't buckle under a load. This unique rod taper takes full advantage of Sage's G5 technology to create a rod that is still delicate enough to detect subtle strikes. The guides are slightly oversized and are designed so you can stack mend, shake out or feed line easily and manipulate the line. The 4- and 5-wt. rods are equipped with nickel-colored aluminum reel seats, cocobolo wood inserts and reverse half-wells grips. The 6- through 8-wt. rods have dark nickel-colored aluminum reel seats, full-wells handles and fighting butts. Made in USA.
