Sage On The Water Tour 2016

Sage On the Water Tour
Bringing fellow fly fisherman together to share knowledge and good times is the mission of our ON THE WATER tour. So we got a VW bus and loaded it up with a ton of rods for you to fish and share stories along spectacular western rivers and beaches. There will be casting lessons, presentations, and of course food and drinks. Various members from the Sage team will be along to talk fish and answer questions. If you love to fly fish, want to try out some new gear, pick up a tip or two, or simply just want to share some good stories, then come join us! All are welcome. Continue reading
