Sage ESN Rods


European Style Nymphing: Fish where the fish are.

Heavy fishing pressure pushes trout out of their soft glides into faster, choppy runs protected by rocks and structure. Europeans developed a style of direct line nymphing using multiple, weighted flies fished under tension on light tippets to systematically dissect these micro-environments, catching fish when no other method could.

This series will work for any of the Euopean styles. Whether its Czech, Polish, French, or Spanish nymphing, the short-line, contact nymph fishing is gaining popularity in North America.

The new ESN Series with Konnetic technology makes for an extremely light rod, ideal for the repetitive casts this precision method requires. The new ESN taper is made with a unique compound tapered mandrel. Its responsive, supple tip telegraphs every boulder, bump and bite, giving you ultimate control.

  • Medium action
  • Konnetic Technology construction
  • Forest Green Shaft
  • Dark Green primary thread wraps with Gold trim wraps
  • Fuji ceramic stripping guides
  • Hard chromed snake guides

    For competition nymph fishermen, Sage’s ESN rods are extremely effective fishing tools. As these anglers increase their skill level, there becomes a need for a longer nymphing rod. The added length of the 3 weight, 11’ ESN offers additional range and will appeal to competition nymph fishermen and recreational Czech-nymph anglers alike. The addition of a mini fighting butt provides rod balance against the angler’s forearm while high-sticking.
