Tight-line nymphing can be difficult without the proper tools. The Sage ESN HD is one of the best Euro Nymphing rods on the market today. In fact, the ESN HD won our 2018 European Nymphing Rod Shootout. The ESN HD is super lightweight, aptly sensitive, and extremely caster-friendly. In typical Sage fashion, the ESN HD is a well-rounded rod with solid performance across the board in every relevant Euro nymphing category.


KonneticHD Technology - Sageā€™s most recent rod technology, KonneticHD, combines a proprietary graphite/resin composite and advanced high-density fiber positioning to drive contemporary fly rod innovation. The ESN HD benefits from KonneticHDā€™s increased strength-to-weight ratio and fiber-to-fiber energy transfer throughout the rod. KonneticHD packages loads of features into the ESN HD to provide the smoothest high-performance euro nymphing rod on the market.


Fuji Ceramic Stripping Guides - Fuji ceramic guides have stood the test of time as high-performance guides in fly fishing. Ceramic guides offer durability and easy line shooting capabilities.

Hard Chrome Single Foot Snake Guides - Snake guides decrease overall rod weight and provide industry-accepted functionality to the ESN HD.

Reel Seat

Downlocking w/Anodized Aluminum - The reel seat on the ESN HD is made with stealth black anodized aluminum and promotes a single downlocking component. Anodized aluminum protects the reel seat of the ESN HD from weathering and wear. The reel seat matches the black ice blank color of the ESN HD.

Rod Tube

Powder Coated Aluminum Rod Tube - The ESN HD comes in a classic Portobello-colored powder coated aluminum rod tube with the easily identifiable Sage medallion. The aluminum rod tube keeps the ESN HD safe during travel and time off of the water.


The Sage Lifetime Warranty - As of January 2021, Every new Sage rod, blank and Sage reel is covered by a lifetime, original owner warranty. One of the finest warranties in the business, it covers defects in materials or workmanship as well as rods that fail due to misuse, negligence, or normal wear-and-tear. Repair fees are based on the age of the rod and Sage charges a $30 processing fee for rods that are part of the current lineup.
