Product Description

Sage Salt 890-4 fly rod

9'0" 8-weight, 4-piece, 4.0 oz

The Sage 890-4 Salt is the best bonefish and redfish rod Sage has ever made.  It is, at once, the most powerful and easy casting fly rod.  The 890-4 Salt is ideal for bonefish, redfish, small stripers, freshwater bass, salmon, pike and almost any other 8-weight species you can name, except steelhead, which require a longer fly rod.

  1. Best of Show 8-weight, with the right line

    Posted by John Duncan (Telluride Angler) on 5th Aug 2014

    The 890-4 Salt is the specific rod that won "Best of Show" at IFTD.

    At the show, Rich Post and I first cast the 7, 8 and 9-weight Salt fly rods with a Rio Bonefish Quickshooter and found that the extra-heavy line caused the tips of these three models to bounce unpleasantly. As with any fly rod, the line pairing is key. We took them back onto the pond with a regular Rio Bonefish line and the outcome was completely different. It makes sense: the Salt is a more moderate action fly rod that flexes deeper into the mid section than the Method or Xi3. A saltwater fly rod with average head length will load evenly and smoothly, but a short-headed line will overload the forgiving tip.

    This rod loads deeper than the comparable Xi3 or Method, and actually generates more line speed in the process. According to Sage, these are "medium-fast" saltwater rods. It's all relative. Most casters will find these to be "fast" rods that respond best to an up-tempo, powerful casting stroke.

    SALT rods are definitely easier to cast than the Xi3. Anglers will throw them well on the first try, which is a huge benefit when going from freshwater to saltwater.

    Line suggestions: SA Sharkwave Saltwater, Rio Bonefish
