Accurate casting in all conditions, great response and control. Good delivery for delicate flies but enough stiffness to swing some streamers if need be.

The Sage Sonic is the perfect all around rod! It is the perfect weight rod for swinging streamers or landing a dry fly on the nose of a feeding trout. It's great for streams, rivers, ponds and lakes. This rod will suit just about every need for the majority of freshwater trout, salmon and bass fishing.

Nice light versatile dry fly rod. Very technical set up. Great for small dry fly presentations. Smaller trout but still have enough backbone for larger fish on lighter tippets.

This will handle all the smaller/medium size trout you can find with enough backbone to get that occasional monster to the net. It will throw dries and nymphs with ease and the smooth guides and fast action make longer casts a breeze.
