Undamming the Elwha

Sage Fly Fishing - Conservation - Elwha River

Nearly a year ago a partnership between KCTX 9 and EarthFix spawned a poignant documentary project on the undamming of the Elwha River. Last week the documentary was shown on Southern Oregon public television and is sure to be screened again. You can catch the film any time online, or right here!

We will be following the progress of the Elwha River closely here at Sage and hope you get involved too. For more information on the project check out this link.

Another Review, another fan: ONE Spey & Switch

Sage Fly Fishing - Product Reviews - Sage ONE Spey

Aaron at Powfly.org took some time to lay out a comprehensive review of the new Sage ONE spey & switch rods. As you may have guessed, he thought they were “phenomenal.”

Every spey and switch rod series out there has some gems and some dogs, but the new ONE’s are consistently phenomenal.

Typhoon Waist Pack Review

Sage Fly Fishing - Product Review - Typhoon Pack

Gear junkies at “Chucking Line and Chasing Tail” give you 11 reasons to get yourself a Typhoon Waist Pack.

2. While it’s big, it’s extremely scale-able. Put 3 full boxes and all your extras in and your good to go. On the flip side, the underside cinches allow you retract its size and make it a lot smaller

Product Preview: Sage One Spey & Switch Rods

Sage Fly Fishing - Product Review - ONE Spey Rod

The guys over at Deneki did some “urban rod testing” with the brand new Sage spey & switch rods. High praise and excitement is what followed.

The subjective side of things is that this rod ‘feels alive’. Laugh if you want to, but those of you who have cast a lot of spey rods know that certain models have a kind of life/energy/spring to them that’s really hard to describe. The 8136-4 ONE feels like it wants to jump out of your hands.

Sage One Rod for Bonefish? Yes.

Sage Fly Fishing - Product Reviews - ONE Rod

The great people at Deneki took the time to test out some ONE Rods on the flats of South Andros Island. Not saltwater rods you say? Check again.

Well…after a whole bunch of shots at bonefish on the flats of South Andros, we buy it. It’s a significant difference – look at that spot where you want to land your fly, make a nice straight back cast, deliver the forward cast and…voila! Watch your fly land where you wanted it to. Seriously, it’s pretty amazing.

Quest Ultra-light Jacket Review

Sage Fly Fishing - Product Review - Quest Ultra-Light Jacket

Dan at Adventures Northwest was lucky enough to have his Quest Ultra-Light Jacket during his latest encounter with an afternoon river rainstorm. Seems like we are both glad he packed this super light jacket.

The Sage Quest Ultra-light jacket weighs a mere 11 ounces (for the XL I wore) and packs into a neat bundle about the size of a soda can. Tucked into my vest, I barely knew it was there. But when pressed into use, it offers big-time performance.
