Sage Mod 290

Here's a personal Sage Mod 290.

This fairly new light line trout rod from Sage sets the bar among long and light rods on the market. A longer length two weight, dry fly specialised rod made of a special graphite that is flexible yet responsive and fun to cast.

I like the Orvis Superfine line on this rod. It forms super sweet loops and enables precise, accurate casting. Can't praise this rod enough for how good it is. Keep in mind you'll have to be a good caster to really understand how this rod performs.

I like how Sage went for a specialized tool that isn't quite for everyone. If you waited too long (I know I did) for a cool nine foot two weight in your life, there you go, you've might just found it.

Thanks for looking!
