Watch: Sage’s New ESN Rod

“ESN” stands for European-Style Nymph.

 

Heavy fishing pressure pushes trout out of their soft glides into faster, choppy runs protected by rocks and structure. Europeans developed a style of direct line nymphing using multiple, weighted flies fished under tension on light tippets to systematically dissect these micro-environments, catching fish when no other method could.

The new ESN Series with Konnetic Technology makes for an extremely light rod, ideal for the repetitive casts this precision method requires. Its responsive, supple tip telegraphs every boulder, bump, and bite, giving you ultimate control.

Even more amazing than the new Sage rod is the story of its presenter. Peter Knox is already a rod designer at a world-class rod and reel company . . . at the ripe old age of 25! He seems to have a bright future ahead of himĀ in an interesting field.
