The Sage BASS II series fly rods are powerhouses designed for one purpose: to accurately throw big meaty flies to hungry bruiser fish, with ease and accuracy. Sage’s upgraded Graphite IIIe Technology gives the fast action Sage BASS II the ability to generate higher line speeds faster in order to carry bulky flies on a straight line to your target.
The 7’11” fly rod also allows anglers to fish tournaments with 8′ rod regulations, and gives anglers the ability to fish in tighter areas. The Sage BASS II fly rod is big fly throwing, fish fighting machine ready to go to battle with big explosive smallmouth, largemouth, and peacock bass as well as pike, musky, tarpon, and snook.
Andres Hung –
After a year of using this rod in the smallmouth weight I can confidently say that is the best rod I have owned so far. Fun and super easy to cast, fast, and powerful. Yet the feel when the fight is own is of a smaller rod giving you the sensation of having monsters and the other end of my line!
I can shoot with the Sage Bass II an 8hr session betting mangroves in heavy wind without getting fatigue. Small cudas, snooks, baby tarpoons, largemouth, and peacocks have been of no match to the Smallmouth Bass II
