NEW! SAGE MAVERICK 1290-4 FLY ROD OUTFIT : 12WT, 9'0"
The New Sage Maverick 1290-4 Fly Rod Outfit features the saltwater worthy Sage Maverick Fly Rod, Sage Spectrum MAX Fly Reel, RIO's Flats Pro Direct Core Saltwater line, premium dacron backing, and a tapered saltwater leader. All Sage Maverick Fly Rod Outfits are shipped professionally rigged and ready to fish...just tie on a fly!
The New for 2020, Sage Maverick Rod has been designed from the ground up with Konnetic Technology to be fine-tuned to the demanding needs of saltwater specific applications. The Maverick 12wt, 9'0" delivers fish-fighting power to the angler to battle the silver king on the flats. A true must have for tarpon fly fishing. This Maverick is versatile with power in casting larger flies, cutting through the wind, and battling fish in the larger pound range. A perfect tool for any angler stepping into the saltwater arena where speed is of the utmost importance.
The Maverick has a design taper with a powerful tip section that drives the casting load down to more robust lower sections, making it easier to fire these quick efficient casts and helping the angler make the most of their finite opportunities. Saltwater angling is more often a game of quick shots than long casts. Dropping a fly in front of a cruising tarpon 20ft off the bow can be the difference between success and failure during a day on the flats. In fact, most saltwater fisheries put a premium on getting the fly to the target quickly. Redfish meandering about Louisiana marshes, bonefish cruising marl-covered flats, and stripers slashing at bait all require a quick cast into “the zone” for high odds at a hookup. The quicker you can lay the fly down, the better the results.

RIO FLATS PRO FLY LINE
RIO's flagship DirectCore Flats Pro saltwater fly line is designed for anglers hitting tropical flats in search of bonefish, permit and tarpon. The line is built on RIO's new DirectCore, a proprietary low-memory, low-stretch monofilament core that retains its stiffness in tropical heat, yet lies straight on the water without curl or retraction. The core, which has 30% less stretch than regular tropical saltwater fly lines, casts further, ensures solid strip sets, and shortens fight times.
