Why We Like The R8 Fly Rod

Sage increased the graphite purity in this rod, giving us enhanced sensitivity and effortless power transfer for quicker responses—the perfect setup for finding our flow. Whether we're punching under overhanging trees, fishing a hopper-dropper rig, or focusing on the perfect presentation and drift, the R8 Fly Rod delivers.
