Sage Fly Rods: Performance casting in saltwater requires the generation of high line speed.
It’s the only way to cut through the wind and put your fly where it needs to be. As saltwater technology advanced over the years, line speed was achieved by building faster and faster rod actions. These rods work extremely well for top-tier casters, but often prove to be challenging for the average angler. The fact is most saltwater anglers are traveling to fish and may only face those conditions for a week annually, or less. Until now, there has been a huge void in high-performance saltwater rods that an average person can cast well. Enter the Salt R8.
Casting the Salt R8 is best described as “intuitive”. You just don’t have to think, (or worry!) about making that critical cast. They’re great in close, but have plenty of punch to deliver at distance. The Salt R8 finally answers the call for a high-performance saltwater rod that can be cast easily by anglers of varying skill levels. This is sure to go down as another one of Sage Manufacturing’s legendary series of fly rods.
