The Sage Approach is the perfect rod if you are looking to get into the sport, but want good quality gear that you can fish from sunrise to sunset for years without complaints. The Approach is a medium-fast action rod. The 890-4 is the perfect salmon rod for kicking over streamers like the clouser minnow and intruder, where the 590-4 is perfect for your small grayling and rainbow nymphs and dries. This rod may be Sage’s entry level rod, but make no mistake, this rod packs the punch of many other company’s mid-high end rod. A great bang for the buck!

A quick note on how to read Sage's rod sizes. Lets take an 386-4 as an example. The first number is the rod weight. In this case it is an 3 weight. The next two numbers are the rod length in feet and inches. This rod is 8 feet 6 inches. Then there is a dash 4 which means it is a four piece rod.
