Anglers often ask us for a fly rod that will excell in any fishing scenario. A rod that they won’t outgrow. And positioned price-wise somewhere below the top shelf. Because of this frequent request we are very excited to welcome the Sage SONIC family of fly rods to Bend Fly Shop.
The Sage SONIC fly rods are all-around fast action. They’re powerful and capable of handling nymph rigs, streamers, wind, and big fish. However, they’re also light in hand and highly sensitive. Light leaders, dry flies, and delicate presentations come naturally when casting the SONIC.
Sage knocked it out of the park regarding aesthetics of the SONIC rods. The blank is a neutral dark olive color, Sage calls “Juniper”, with charcoal thread wraps. The snub-nose half wells handle is built with Super Plus cork and the uplocking reelseat is anodized aluminum with a hardwood insert. As a result, the colors and componentry of the rod are subtle, classy, and blend in well.
Built in the USA with Konnetic technology and enhanced durability, the Sage SONIC offers uncompromising performance and versatility, and will serve well as a primary fly rod.
