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. 

The 596-4 is the extended length of teh most versatile and most popular rod model of the Sage R8 series. The 596-4 offers improved mending and longer casting of trout flies nearly any size.  It manages lines of varying densities and does so with superb feel, accuracy, and line control.
