Sage R8 Core 590-4 Fly Rod 5WT 9'0" 4 Piece

$1,015.00

Sage R8 Fly Rods

R8 Core is a rod family focused on maximum versatility and applies new revolutionary material technology through our forward thinking lens of what we’re seeing out on the water where one rod needs to show even greater range. At its Core, R8 CORE traces a direct lineage to Sage’s multi application vision, one shaped by the fishing evolutions happening all around us—from habitats we stalk and waters we frequent, to the flies we fish and the diversity of species we now target. Coming in a range from 3wt to 9wt, with a variety of lengths from 8’6” to 10’0”, there’s sure to be a model to fit the core needs of every freshwater angler.

The 590-4 is the most versatile and most popular rod model of the Sage R8 series. The 590-4 handles trout flies of nearly any size, lines of varying densities and does so with superb feel, accuracy, and line control.

Angler's Lane Commentary:
Extremely durable reel. Great reel for any freshwater and most any saltwater situations. We love the Guru S reels which are outstanding in freshwater situations. Made in USA.

Orvis Mirage LT

  • Designed to balance perfectly with lighter freshwater rods
  • Zero start-up inertia and precise low-end control protects light tippets
  • Lighter version of the sealed and maintenance-free carbon and stainless steel disc drag

Orvis has a winner in the Mirage LT reel. Lightweight, smooth yet strong drag system. Excellent match for a premium fly rod combo. Made in USA.

 

Lamson Litespeed F

Lamson Litespeed F (Freshwater)
  • CNC machined with material distributed artfully along critical load paths
  • stable and strong, extremely light
  • drag system creates a linear progression of torque with very fine resolution at the light end of its range
  • spool and frame architecture is super-arbor in scale for high retrieve, but spare and open to promote line drying and, of course, reduce weight
  • Ultra Large Arbor Format
  • Lightest yet largest diameter Litespeed to date
  • Space frame construction - Exceptional Strength-to-Weight Ratio
  • Re-engineered seals - Enhanced reliability and waterproofing
  • Indexing click drag knob

Angler's Lane Commentary:
Lamson ranks as a consistent innovator of fly reels. The Litespeed F (Freshwater) represents the finest in fly reel arcitecture and function. With a light, yet durable frame the drag is always consistent. Our guides have been using Litespeeds since 2000 and each generation represents an improvement, this 2021 version is second to none among our favorites!
