Tested: Sage Method 890-4 fly rod

DURING my recent trip to Melville Lodge in the Top End, I had the opportunity to use a Sage Method 890-4 fly rod.

Even for someone like me whose fly casting skills are a bit rusty, I found the Sage Method a superb casting tool. While I’ve been reliably informed that this 9-foot, 8-weight rod is a fabulous bonefishing tool I also found it ideally suited to casting heavily weighted Clouser minnows at snags laden with barras and mangrove jacks and surface flies such as Gurglers at saratogas hidden amongst Goose Creek lillies.

What impressed me most was how light the Sage Method felt in hand, yet it still had the pulling power to keep those jacks and barras from getting back to their snaggy lairs.

I would say this fly rod is the best 8-weight I’ve ever used and in a 4-piece configuration is ideally suited to the travelling angler. If you’re a bass, bonefish or barra angler looking to purchase a really versatile, high performance 8-weight fly rod I recommend you have a look at the Sage Method 890-4. I’m sure you won’t regret it.
