    SAGE FOUNDATION 790-4 FLY ROD : 7WT 9'0"

    Sage Foundation fly rods are without question, the best value in a USA made, high-performance fly rod. You will be amazed at how beautifully smooth these rods cast. If you've been thinking about stepping up to a Sage rod, your decision just became much easier. Sage Foundation will change the way you look at affordability vs. performance. The Foundation 7wt 9'0" is the perfect choice for smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, steelhead, streamer fishing big browns, and flats saltwater fishing when the winds are calmer. 

    Sage Foundation is built on a high-performance Graphite IIIe blank, delivering a smooth, crisp medium-fast action that will suit most casting styles. The rod loads deep, providing excellent casting power and effortless control. It‰ is the very foundation of what defines a Sage rod; performance and taking your game to another level. Whether you are a guide on the Madison or exploring your backyard waters, the Foundation rods deliver the signature Sage feel. For over 35 years Sage has built performance rods one at a time on Bainbridge Island, WA. The same 27 sets of skilled hands that craft all Sage rods construct each Foundation fly rod.

    I bought this rod to get into streamer fishing for trout. It is also a great rod for bass in nearby ponds. I loaded an Orvis Mid-Arbor reel with Rio Big Nasty sink tip and this rod cast accurately as far as I need to. No hook keeper which I miss. I painted alignment dots on as it did not have those either. I love it and see no real need for a more expensive rod for the purposes I want it for. Not as fast/stiff as some have said which is a good thing.

    The Safe Foundation 9 ft 7 wt exceeded my expectations, which were high based on everything I had read about it. This is truly a fantastic rod - I lined it with a Vaya 7/8 reel lined with SA Amplitude Smooth Infinity and it is a dream to cast. Bombed a mouse pattern to 50 ft with ease and perfect, tight loops ... or 12 ft of leader tippet to a 7x dry fly with absolute precision and presentation. This is now my "go-to" rod for everything I usually go after whether I am wading or float fishing ! Seriously - you cannot go wrong with this rod.
