The Sage ESN fly rod is built for European nymphing, and is designed to fish in the choppy, protected runs inhabited by European trout. The ESN fly rod is Sage's first foray into the world of European nymphing, and it's proven to be a huge success.
Heavy fishing forces trout away from calmer areas of water. Rods, such as the Sage ESN fly rod, are used to counter this change in behavior.
The Sage ESN fly rod is built using the company's Konnetic technology. Konnetic allows for a much narrower taper, with the end result being a highly sensitive tip. This is essential for European nymphing, which relies on precision and repetitive casting. It also has a medium action, allowing enough tip flex for underwater adjustments, and a sturdy butt.
The European style of catching trout requires repetitive casting, which can be tiring if you're using a heavy rod. For this reason, the Sage ESN fly rod is designed to be as light as possible, so you can cast effortlessly all day long.
Other features include a high grade, custom half-wells cork handle, Cocobolo seat insert and aluminum tube. Hard chromed snake guides are also used.
