Sage Payload Fly Rod

Notify me when this product is available:

Big fish, big fly. While not always the case, this rule does ring true for many warmwater and saltwater fisheries with anglers casting larger flies than ever before. With a powerful but comfortable casting action, the new PAYLOAD series of rods are designed to help anglers cast those heavy lines and big flies more effectively. Whether launching a double-articulated streamer to the far bank with the 689-4 or dredging the below Mio with the 989-4, anglers will notice how easy it is to hurl a heavy line and big fly with the PAYLOAD.
