Sage Approach Fly Rod

Rod Case (Optional)

Calling the Sage Approach series rods "entry level" just doesn't do them justice. Utilizing a higher modulus graphite than any of our previous entry-level rods, the Approach has a medium-fast action that provides excellent line feel and control. Beginning casters can easily grow with this rod without ever feeling they've outgrown it.


  • Medium-fast action
  • Oyster Shell shaft color
  • Black primary thread wraps with silver trim wraps
  • Ceramic stripper guide
  • Hard chrome snake guides and tip top
  • Reverse half-wells grip on freshwater weights
  • All aluminum reel seat with full-wells grip and fighting butt for saltwater weights
  • Silver gray CORDURA rod tube
  • Backed by Sage's Lifetime Warranty

Details "Sage Approach 9ft 5wt"

I've had my Sage Approach for just about a year and I'm still very happy with the product. I have a 9ft 5 wt and typically fish the Eagle River, the Colorado River and Gore Creek, which this rod does great on all these rivers. It is a great dry fly and nymphing rod.

Details "4wt Sage Approach"

Excellent for nymph fishing on the Eagle River. Matched mine with a Sage 2200 reel and 5wt line. Can't to try with dry flies in the summer.
