Save 33%! Buy a Sage Approach 4 or 5 Weight Fly Rod and Get a FREE Orvis Battenkill II Reel with Fly Line with Backing!
Calling our Approach series rods "entry level" just doesn't do them justice. Utilizing a higher modulus graphite than any of our previous entry-level rods, the Approach has a medium-fast action that provides excellent line feel and control. Beginning casters can easily grow with this rod without ever feeling they've outgrown it.
Like all Sage rods, the Approach series is made in Bainbridge Island, Washington, USA and is covered by their "Life-time Unconditional Warranty."

Orvis Battenkill Reel:
Simple design and flawless construction make this the perfect click-and-pawl fly reel for nearly any freshwater fishing situation. A minimalist's dream, the all-new Battenkill features a classically styled, yet technically enhanced, four-position click-and-pawl drag system that is adjusted internally and is designed to work in tandem with the palm of your hand on those sizzling, screaming runs. Constructed with a narrow spool for less line stacking on retrieve and a larger spool diameter for higher line retrieval rates. The ultra-lightweight fly reel design balances perfectly on shorter rods. Machined from heavy-duty bar-stock aluminium for added durability. Easily adjustable left- or right-hand retrieve. Highlighted by laser-engraved logos. In black nickel.
* Size II for line weights 3-5, 2.9 oz., 3" diameter.
And, we will add a weight forward, floating fly line with backing to the reel for you!
