Sage Foundation fly rods are without question, the best value in a USA made, high-performance fly rod. You will be amazed at how beautifully smooth these rods cast. If you have been thinking about stepping up to a Sage rod, your decision just became much easier. Sage Foundation will change the way you look at affordability vs. performance. The Foundation 5wt 9'0" is the perfect choice as your all-purpose trout fly rod to fish everything from dry flies to streamers, in big and small water. If you are going to use one rod for trout, this is the weight and length you want to have.
Sage Foundation is built on a high-performance Graphite IIIe blank, delivering a smooth, crisp medium-fast action that will suit most casting styles. The rod loads deep, providing excellent casting power and effortless control. It is the very foundation of what defines a Sage rod; performance and taking your game to another level. Whether you are a guide on the Madison or exploring your backyard waters, the Foundation rods deliver the signature Sage feel. For over 35 years Sage has built performance rods one at a time on Bainbridge Island, WA. The same 27 sets of skilled hands that craft all Sage rods construct each Foundation fly rod.
