Sage Fly Rods & Reels

PHILOSOPHY

First, it’s important to understand the ethos that has been constant at Sage since the beginning: Perfecting Performance and the emphasis on design and function. The philosophy was simply: specialty product for specialty anglers.
 
Years of fly fishing experience had taught Don that fly rods should never run out of "power." While there might be fishing scenarios where the full power and flex of a fly rod were not utilized by the angler, the best designs were those that always held power in reserve. Hence the name Reserve Power was given to the new style of fly rod Don developed using graphite to create high line speed for extra-long casts or windy conditions. The name was abbreviated to the RP. Released in 1983, this was the first major fly rod series released by Sage, and the RP family, built with Sage’s Graphite II Technology, quickly became the most talked about fly rods in the world.
