Well the wait is now over, my new rod came in today. I have to wait to fish it till next week due to my work schedule. Today I just got to mess around casting it my yard.

awesome rod..... someone once told me "when jesus goes flyfishing, he uses a sage"

ive whipped a few around at bass pro...mostly just the "cheap" launch series.

i got me a 120 bass pro combo cause i only fly fish local streams around so cal and do some midge fishing in my float tube....mainly into mini jigging and such, but like to change it up every now and then.

have fun, hope you land a trophy brown!

a "trophy brown" on that rod would probably bend it into a pretzel...

my god, buddy... #000?! Is the line a thread? :D How many grains is a 000? Sages are great... I'm an equal opportunity rod buyer... I own one from just about everyone now. Some rods from different brands in different weights and lengths just feel more "right" than others...

I run a 2-weight as my smallest and it feels like I'm flipping nothing...

Have you tried building any rods yourself? I shouldn't encourage you, if not... :D You can build twice the rod for half the price.

Sorry for the late reply, I have not been on in a while, right now I only have Orvis rods and the one Sage. The 000WT is a blast to fish I took it to a small creek last WED and then to a larger river this past weekend. Most of my fishing is done with a 1WT using 60 grain 1WT WF floating line. The 000WT DT floating line is visibly smaller. As far as weight I was told by a rod builder once you get down to 1WT each size smaller is 10 grains less.

Now as far as fishing it, the thing is a blast especially on small creeks. Believe it or not it casts very well even on further casts. No I have not got into rod building yet that was going to be my next adventure.

Well you can do both!!!!!!! You just need a much larger rod than the 000WT pictured here, something like my 9WT would work a bit better ;)
For me fly fishing is quite addictive, I have fished all of my life but I love fly fishing so much more. However my wallet does not because I could have almost paid for another AR for what this rod and reel cost me. But you do not have to spend an arm and a leg on fly gear if you don't want to.

Anyways check out some of these stripers caught on a fly
