Sage Mod, Pulse And Bolt Fly Rods


Thoughtfully crafted with contemporary line designs, fly patterns, and angling styles in mind, the MOD is a modern interpretation of a moderate action, specific for trout fisheries. The MOD blank is jade coloured and has yellow-green thread wraps with black trim wraps.

Single-hand rods have a zebra wood insert with gloss black anodized aluminium up-locking reel seat with a Super Plus snub-nose half-wells cork handle.

“I’ve been thinking about this rod for quite some time now, it was conceived as I fished smaller to medium sized trout streams,” says Jerry Siem, Sage chief rod designer. “I like to compare it to the short game in golf, where you need an accurate presentation with a delicate touch. The MOD is optimised for those distances and scenarios.”

The MOD singled-hand fly rods are available in 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 weights in 9-foot lengths, and the Spey models come in a 6 and 7 weight in 13-foot lengths.

Sage’s new BOLT fly rod family is the ultra-fast action take on Generation 5 technology. Salmonfly blank colour highlighted with orange thread wraps and black trim wraps. A stealth black anodized aluminium up-locking reel seat is on both freshwater and saltwater models, but the freshwater has a rosewood insert and the saltwater models are finished with a fighting butt.

Anglers looking for long distances, fast line speeds and quick recovery in a fly rod need look no further than the BOLT. The ultra-fast action of these rods makes high line speeds and tight loops easier, giving anglers the casting confidence needed in demanding conditions.”
The BOLT comes in 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 weights in 9-foot lengths.

From freshwater to the salt, single-hand, switch, or Spey, there’s a rod in the PULSE family for every application.
