Introducing the New for 2020 Sage Trout LL Fly Rod, with a delicate touch and medium action, the Trout LL family has been designed with the trout angler and dry flies in mind. The Trout LL 490-4 is the perfect choice as an all-purpose trout fly rod for small to medium size rivers. The Trout LL 490-4 will make the most delicate dry fly presentations to spooky trout, turn over smaller nymphing rigs, and deliver terrestrials and small streamers accurately at longer distances. This is a highly versatile length and weight that excels in most situations.
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 components add an elegant touch to these high performance rods.
