SAGE CIRCA SERIES FLY RODS If you're a devotee of the casting nuances of the slow action fly rod, a student of its historic ties to our sport, or just like the thrill of moving in close to actively feeding fish, consider the new CIRCA rod a reward for your years of dedication. But be warned: the CIRCA does not mimic the type of slow action that has so far defined the category - overly soft, willowy and flat. Instead, thanks to Konnetic technology's ability to compact and align more carbon fibers into a smaller diameter blank, Sage rod designers were able to design a radically narrow taper throughout the length of the rod, resulting in consistently slow, yet responsive action from butt to tip. The new CIRCA rod is a technologically advanced slow-action fly rod that honors your slower, more deliberate casting style, yet is every bit a Sage.

"My goal for this rod was to apply the performance advantages of modern materials on a very sleek, slender shaft that would load down in the hand for a fishing tempo like glass or bamboo while providing the crucial need for accuracy." Jerry Siem, Sage Chief Fly Rod Designer

Key features of the CIRCA

Low-Profile Ferrules - The inherent strength of Konnetic technology allows us to reduce the weight of our all-graphite ferrule connections by nearly 70%. Improved aerodynamics plus lighter weight contribute to lighter blanks.

Green Tea Color - An elegant and inviting green finish is accented by Olive primary thread wraps with Slate colored trim wraps. Exotic, tightly grained Vera wood insert with black aluminum reel seat and winding check pattern create a perfect combination.

Custom Cork Handle - Snub-nose, half-wells grip. The cork is custom formed to match the exact taper of the CIRCA rod, providing a snug fit that helps communicate casting feedback for utmost accuracy.

Round Tip Eye - This Sage-designed tip-top never pinches or binds the line, allowing the caster to make mends and cast in any direction with full control.

Slim Profile Rod Tube - Only 1 5/8" in Desert Gold color, plus a unique rod bag: like a chameleon, its gold silk-screened colors flash between gold and green in the light.
