European-style nymphing has been deemed on of the most effective ways to catch trout anywhere and Sage's ESN fly fishing rods help you get into more fish comfortably. ESN rods are made with KonneticHD technology allowing for better blank recovery rate, increased sensitivity, and superior shock absorption to protect your leader from aggressive takes. The 10 foot length and medium action makes it a joy to roll cast heavy rigs while still allowing accurate, long distance casts. The Sage ESN fly rod series is a versatile tool for both small creeks and big rivers - making it the epitome of European-style nymph fishing.

KonneticHD Graphite Technology
KonneticHD technology is the highest energy-transferring material Sage has created, symbolizing a new era in performance graphite roads. Sage optimized the graphite-to-resin ratio to create this higher density (HD) fiber composite, resulting in lighter, stronger blanks. Rods crafted with KonneticHD offer improved recovery, energy transfer, and line/loop control, as well as exceptional strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios.
