Wickedly lightweight, the Sage TXL-F 4-Piece Fly Rod impresses with its sensitivity and ability to fish teeny flies with super-light tippet. Ideal for fishing small meadow streams, spring creeks, and beaver ponds, this freshwater beauty was designed to get you away from the crowds and deep into the backcountry.

  • Micro Ferrule technology enables the TXL-F to be 33% lighter than its nearly weightless predecessor (TXL), provides better energy transfer, and enhances your feel of the rod
  • Moderate-to-fast action flex gives you a versatile rod that's able to fish in a wide range of situations and provide good control and hook setting allowances
  • Generation 5 technology (use of graphite hoop fibers instead of traditional glass hoop fibers) makes for a lighter, more responsive rod with exceptional feel
  • Snub-nosed half-wells grip give you an enhanced feel in the cast, more control, and is ideal for those who like support of his or her thumb
  • Four-piece configuration makes it compact, easier to transport, and reduces the case length for backcountry travel
  • Bronze anodized reel seat with natural walnut insert and high-quality cork grip round out the components
  • Cloth bag and 5/8-inch antique aluminum tube protect the TXL-F during transport and storage
  • For an overall smooth casting system Sage recommends you go with the its Double Taper Fly Line and a Click Series Fly Reel (both are sold separately)

Versatile Trout Rod

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this rod in the 4 weight for my boyfriend. He loves it! It's the perfect weight for trout fishing in New England.

I also tried it out a few weekends ago. It casts beautifully. Definitely much lighter and faster action than my Redington Butter Stick.

The length is nice for fishing smaller streams, and enables accurate casting. However, the rod isn't so light that you will have trouble catching a large 16" rainbow--which my boyfriend managed to land this past weekend.

For those who are obsessed with made in the U.S. products, these rods are made here and come with a decent warranty.

Since it's a four piece configuration it packs down easily, which is perfect for travel.

I highly suggest ordering this rod before it sells out. has a great price on it!
