    An advanced slow-action fly rod that honors your slower, more deliberate casting style.

    A game-changer in slow-action dry fly fishing, the Sage Circa 4-Piece Fly Rod delivers crisp and precise loading and unloading for a smooth, slower tempo, unmatched accuracy, and delicate presentations. Designed with Konnetic technology, the Circa helps you improve as an angler so you can put a fly on the water the right way, right where you want it to fool wary fish and have a good time doing so.

    • Slow-action fly rod has a radically narrow taper throughout the length of the rod, which results in consistently slow yet responsive action from butt to tip
    • Konnetic construction compacts and aligns more carbon fibers into a smaller diameter blank which provides smooth, graceful casts that are crisp and purposeful
    • Enhanced sensitivity, due to Konnetic technology, gives you the precision and control needed for delicate presentations
    • Low-profile ferrules, thanks to the inherent strength of Konnetic technology, allow Sage to reduce the weight of the all-graphite ferrule connections by nearly 70%, while improved aerodynamics plus lighter weight contribute to lighter blanks
    • Custom cork handle features a snub-nose, half-wells grip that matches the exact taper of the Circa rod, providing a snug fit that helps communicate casting feedback for utmost accuracy
    • Vera wood insert with black aluminum reel seat and winding check pattern create an ideal combination
    • Round tip eye never pinches or binds the line, which allows you to make mends and cast in any direction with full control
    • Green tea color is accented by olive primary thread wraps with slate-colored trim wraps for an elegant and inviting finish
    • Slim-profile rod tube and a unique rod bag protect your rod when not in use
    • Item #SAG0046

    Spring Creek Crusher

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Get this in the 4wt 8'9" size, pair with the spring creek of your choice, and enjoy one of the best mornings fly fishing has to offer.

    For years the fly fishing world has been focused on turning our passion into an action sport, everyone wants to throw monster streamers on fast action rods in the latest trucker hat and buff combo. Leave your phone in the truck, grab a bit of scotch, and slow down while you wait for that big bank feeder to start sipping every PMD that comes down. Just make sure you have the circa in hand when it comes time to cast.

    I grew up fishing old school Winston's on the Henry's Fork and Montana spring creeks and every time I cast the Circa I am transported back to being a kid chasing big selective trout around some of the best rivers of the west. The slow action allows for insanely delicate presentations and will make your stalking skills improve as I find the sweet spot on this rod to be 20-30ft cast. It has enough backbone to battle some truly large trout, but the soft action will cushion the hook set when you get tight to a 20" bow on 6x tippet. This is a niche rod for the serious dry fly angler. However if you love to chase super selective trout in gin clear water this is the rod for you.

    and for God's sake leave your split shot and thingamabobbers at home.

    Only used it for one season so far...

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    and this thing is AWESOME. Look - before you buy it, you gotta know its a specialty tool. While it will sling small light streamers and do really light nymphing, this rod was designed for delicate dry fly work. I have this in 3wt 8'9" and its perfect. It was pretty much the only rod I used all summer(including the few times I used it to swing some smaller streamers and with hopper/dropper combos) and it performed admirably, albeit lacking a bit with streamers and the hopper droppers but thats to be expected. Slow isn't for everyone, but I do quite enjoy it. It pairs well with Rio Gold line.

    Only used it for one season so far...

    So good

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is by far my favorite rod to use on anything besides big rivers. With a Click reel in a 489 its the perfect combo for dry's, swinging softies, or even some light nymphing.

    A tip from Sage is to up line this one and you can actually use it as a fast action rod. I kinda believe it too. When you really start powering this thing out you can get it to cast a good ways and the action sort of speeds up as you do... Hard to explain, but its nice to fish. Definitely recommend this rod. Its great.
