Sage TXL-F Rods

Designed as an ultra sensitive rod, the Sage TXL-F is ideal for fishing with light tippets and small flies. If you love angling in winding creeks, where extra sensitivity is essential, the Sage TXL-F fly rod could be the perfect option.

The increased sensitivity of the Sage TXL-F fly rod is partly due to the company's "Micro Ferrule Technology." This, combined with a design that allows for greater power transmission between the four sections of the rod, makes small adjustments to your cast simple and intuitive. When it comes to increased control and feel, there are few rods that can match the Sage TXL-F.

Line weights from 000 to 4 are available for the Sage TXL-F fly rod. All versions of the rod come with a snug-nose, half-wells grip, and are 7'10'' in length. The only exceptions are variations on the 3- and 4-weight models which feature a slightly shorter design at just 6'10''.

The Sage TXL-F fly rod is designed with a moderate fast action. It's built with Sage's G5 technology, and is a super-lightweight model that's perfect for long fishing trips. The grip is also ergonomically designed and comfortable to hold for extended periods.

Other features include a bronze anodized reel seat, complete with walnut insert, and a moderate-fast action. A black cloth bag and an aluminum tube are included with the Sage TXL-F fly rod.

Sage TXL-F Fly Rod - DISCONTINUED Reviews

This Rod Will Change the Way You Fish Small Creeks Review by David
Posted on 8/22/15
This is my go-to 3 weight rod fishing small creeks in the Driftless area of Minnesota and Wisconsin. In the Driftless, often times you’re fishing creeks ranging from the width of a sidewalk to 40 feet across. The TXL-F can handle any technical aspect of casting you might encounter in these situations. This rod allows me to easily drop a fly in a teacup at any distance, roll cast with authority when brush is behind me and get down ‘n’ dirty with some nymph rigs.

Don’t be fooled with the light weight, it has more casting power than you’ll ever need. I’ve also found this rod to have more than enough backbone to power hooked trout out of woody debris and other similar situations. The medium action also makes this rod a joy to cast and allows easier mends. I tip my hat to Sage as well. No one creates such slender rod profiles without sacrificing any power.

Obviously, this rod is designed for specific purposes. Dry and wet flies are its strongest suit followed by nymphing. However, this rod is not designed for steamers and it doesn’t pretend to be. If you find yourself fishing a lot of smaller tailwaters and creeks this should be the first and last rod you look at.
