    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.

    FEATURES:
    • Full frame, fully machined 6061-T6 aerospace grade aluminum
    • Cold forged and tempered for superior strength and rigidity
    • Hard anodized for surface protection and corrosion resistance
    • Patented Sealed Carbon System SCS Drag for years of flawless performance
    • One Revolution Drag Knob with numbered and detented setting
    • Ultra-Large arbor for fast line pick-up
    • Narrower spool for small volume ESN lines
    • Concave arbor for greater strength and capacity
    • Stainless steel ½, 1, and 1 ½ oz weights to adjust ideal balance point of nymphing setup
    • Easy conversion from left- to right-hand retrieve
    • Neoprene and embroidered ballistic nylon reel case & spare weight case

    Boy do I love this reel. Paired with a 3wt 10' Sage ESN rod, it's a bit unnecessary, however. That rod is very light, especially at the tip. Didn't need any of the weights to balance my rod. But it looks great and the perforce is top notch.

    By adjusting the weight of Reel, I can fish in a well-balanced and tireless manner. I recommend this Reel to people because it is very easy to handle and for fishing.

    Been reading reviews on this reel for euro nymph rods and tight lining. I finally bit the bullet and decided to spend the money and purchase this reel for my 10' 6'' helios 3 wt. It matches perfect for this rod. Also with the adjustable weights I was able to balance out the rod perfectly with this reel. The Sage ESN was designed as a perfect reel for euro nymphing/high sticking. I am glad I spent the money to invest in this well designed piece of machinery.

    I've used the ESN most of this season and it has solved the annoying problem of thin mono line getting caught between the spool and frame. I have been able to use running line down to 6lb without issue. Drag is smooth and easy to adjust. I have used it on both 10', 3wt and 10'-9", 3wt without adding or changing the weight as I don't find I need it. The one issue I have had is drag clicker has failed but it hasn't affected the operation and I prefer a silent reel anyway.

    I have been fishing a mono rig and using an old regular size arbor reel and have been annoyed by all of the coiling of the mono. Bought this reel to lessen the coiling. Fished with it for 3 days and coiling was much improved. I really like the adjustable weights and how you can even rotate them clockwise or counterclockwise to further fine tune the balance of the rod. The drag is excellent. Very happy with the purchase.

    Awesome bit of kit. Smooth drag, plenty for trout and light tippets and weight adjustable for easy balance set up.
