NEW! SAGE ESN FLY REEL
Sage ESN Fly Reels are packed with a suite of specialty features with the Euro-Nymph angler in mind and is fine tuned to the nuances of each application. Built around a super thin and large diameter arbor, this design now makes it easier to get fish on the reel quickly, minimizing the need to guide line onto the spool with your finger, all while providing consistent drag output.
A unique balance system allows anglers to assemble and fine tune a set of weights, so the ESN reel can perfectly balance any Euro Nymphing (or standard) rod. Add in a full frame that prevents fine leaders and lines from sneaking through the frame and sealed carbon drag system that provides a smooth uptake – leaving you with the ultimate fish-catching machine.
Adjustable Weights for Balancing: The ESN reel comes in one size, containing 3 interchangeable accessory weights (1/2oz, 1oz, and 1 1/2oz), and is appropriate for dialing in any Euro Nymphing setup on the market.
