Sage ESN Fly Rod 5

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.

Sage ESN Fly Rod Reviews

Great Specialty Rod Review by Dennis
Posted on 8/4/16
All my comments will mirror the review by Kyle. I have not cast this rod in a traditional sense but used it for the European nymphing. The added reach of the 11 foot length makes this a perfect rod for the aforementioned style of fishing. My only regret on this rod is that I did not buy it when it was first introduced.

This is quickly becoming my favorite rod and I think a must have for the Euro nymphing crowd. Very sensitive tip allows you to feel everything happening below water. Softer action than their 99 model so if you like a stiffer rod something to consider.
