Alaska's Premier Fly Fishing Source

Sage Motive

$450.00 each
Imagine yourself on a big Alaskan river full of brawny salmon. You pick up your line, make two false casts and rocket a cast a solid 10 feet further than usual. You must have a Sage Motive in your hand. If ever there was a salmon rod for Alaska this is it. This rod is made for big fish, big casts, and big flies, so what better place to use it than Alaska?

Details


From Us:
This rod is not made for small stream nymph fishing for steelhead. The Sage Motive is made for stripping or swinging flies for big, ocean-bright salmon in heavy current. A surprisingly light and easy rod to handle in hand, the Motive truly impressed us, especially because it is under $500!

Made for saltwater, we expected a stiff broom stick of a rod, but that’s not what we got. The Sage Motive was meant for long distance casts and fighting strong fish, but is light enough to cast all day with little fatigue. If you know how to haul your line, your fly could very well end up on the other side of the river.

From Sage:

Lifetime Guarantee against breakage, means casting big weighted salmon flies fearlessly.

A quick note on how to read Sage's rod sizes. Lets take an 890-4 as an example. The first number is the rod weight. In this case it is an 8 weight. The next two numbers are the rod length in feet and inches. This rod is 9 feet 0 inches. Then there is a dash 4 which means it is a four piece rod.
