Sage Salt R8 Fly Rod

FG icon

The Sage Salt R8 fly rod is a high-performance fly fishing rod designed for saltwater angling. It is built with Sage's proprietary KonneticHD technology, which provides increased power and accuracy while reducing weight. The R8 is designed for a wide range of saltwater fishing situations, including casting larger flies, making long-distance presentations, and fighting powerful fish.

The rod is designed to be 25% stronger per weight than the previous versions, which allows for faster landing times and reduces fish stress and catch-and-release pressure on delicate ecosystems. Sage's rod designers also made the Salt R8 rod more intuitive, with a sweet spot that makes it easy to handle, and a taper that provides fine touch shots and precise presentations. Saltwater fly rods have a reputation for being unwieldy, unforgiving, and difficult but with the SALT R8, the days of sacrificing feel and touch in your saltwater rod are gone.
