Legendary fly rod manufacturer Sage is pleased to introduce the new ESN, an all-around European-Style Nymphing rod ideal for small creeks to big rivers.

“Built with a KonneticHD backbone, the ESN allows anglers to experience unmatched blank recovery, increased sensitivity, reduced weigh-in-hand, and superior shock absorption,” says Peter Knox, R&D design engineer. “Designed with a variety of long and short line techniques and situations in mind, this refined European-Style Nymphing rod allows anglers to confidently work any stretch of river the world over.”

The black ice blank has garnet thread wraps with metallic charcoal trim wraps. Hard chrome single-foot snake guides and tip top decrease weight. The super plus snub nosed, half-wells cork handle is comfortable in hand, and the stealth black anodized aluminum reel seat is down-locking for perfect balance. Laser etched line weights are easy to read on the slide ban. All models come in a black rod bag and black powder-coated aluminum rod tube.
