SAGE TROUT LL 490-4 FLY ROD : 4WT, 9'0"
Sage Trout LL fly rods feature a delicate touch and smooth, medium action designed with the trout angler and flawless dry fly presentations in mind. The 4wt 9'0" is the ultimate lightweight, larger river trout rod. The longer 9'0" length allows for more distance on the dry cast, and better control with mending and roll casting while subsurface fishing. This is a true all around dry fly rod for any angler looking for precision and feel.
Through blank taper optimization and specialized length offerings, the Trout LL is perfected for wade fishing, closer casts, small flies, and light tippets. A relatively supple tip maximizes light tippet protection and gives way to a smooth easy-loading mid-section that increases feel and feedback throughout the casting stroke. When the hatch is on, the Trout LL is an angler’s best friend. Drawing inspiration from historic Sage rods of the past, the Trout LL is a nod toward tradition with a classic appearance and a smooth casting taper, yet adds modern performance features in accuracy and loop control through the backbone of Konnetic HD blank material.
The Trout LL series is available in a combination of classic dry fly line weights and lengths 7’9” though 9’0” while beautiful wood inserts and premium componentry add an elegant touch to these high performance rods

I feel like this had power over the 8' 6". I like long leaders, 15' to 18' and this has the power to turn these over. Use this more than any of my 5wts for an all around rod.

Bought this for a trip to Wyoming butI had to break it in during the COVOD19 issues. Thus far it has landed about 50 crappie and 15 bass.

After reading several reviews for the 4wt 9' LL Trout, I took a chance and purchased the rod without trying it....best decision I have ever made for fly fishing equipment. I took this rod to Australia for some trout fishing in the Southern Highlands and fell instantly in love with it. From long casts to short bow & arrow casts, this rod did it all with great accuracy. It has become my new goto rod for fishing. The rod had a wonderful feel to it, especially on the back cast when I was too focused on the target. Highly recommend this to anyone who wishes to throw dry flies (even dry droppers) with gentle but accurate aplomb.
