Equipped with a high-performance blank (Graphite IIIe), the FOUNDATION has a fast action providing excellent casting power and effortless control. It’s the very foundation of what defines a Sage rod – Performance - taking your game to another level. Whether you are a guide on the Madison or exploring your backyard waters, the FOUNDATION series delivers the signature Sage feel. For over 35 years we’ve built performance rods one at a time on Bainbridge Island, WA. The same 27 sets of skilled hands that craft all Sage rods construct the FOUNDATION.

With a sensitive tip section to protect light tippets, a versatile balance between accuracy and delicacy is achieved.

NYMPHING

A powerful butt section easily lifts fish from their lie and gives great turnover capabilities for multi-nymph rigs. With a sensitive tip section to protect light tippets, a versatile balance between lifting power and delicacy provides perfect synergy for nymph fishing.

STREAMERS

A powerful butt section easily throws a wide range of streamers and accommodates effective sinking tip lines. In addition, it provides the ability to quickly pull aggressive fish out of structure for increased landing success.
