Sage Payload Fly Rod
The new Payload series of rods are designed to help anglers cast heavy lines and big flies more effectively. Whether launching a double-articulated streamer to the far bank or dredging the Sacramento Delta, anglers will notice how easy it is to hurl a heavy line and big fly with the Payload.
Featuring a fast action for casting large flies and very powerful tip to help pick up heavy lines off the water, the Payload is tuned for the extreme. These powerful mid sections then transition to a more forgiving butt that allows for a slower and more relaxed casting stroke that reduces fatigue. This softer butt section also allows for more leverage while fighting fish, making it easier to gain ground on hard fighting species. The slightly shorter lengths offer a more effortless cast through a shorter lever and is better for landing fish out of a boat over a traditional 9’0” rod.
