Sage Dart Fly Rods

by Sage


  • Accurate delivery of small flies
  • Casting in small water and amongst obstructions
  • Light, stealthy presentations

The small water DART features a short-range fast action for chasing wary trout in still and clear water, close quarters, or obstacle-ridden streamsides. Specifically designed to drive precise loops under the branches of a willow while still providing delicate presentations and delightful feedback to the angler. The KonneticHD materials combined with performance-friendly fast action gives fishermen the ultimate competitive advantage against highly selective trout. The 0-4wt models at 7'6" provide the backbone of this family with ultra-light performance, while the shorter model in a 3wt provides a specialty tool to the angler looking for accuracy in extremely confined areas. The lightest, most precise casting small water rod ever made, the DART is destined to become a cherished tool in the trout fisherman’s quiver for years to come.

Why 3 piece? Simply to create a rod that performs better. By not having a join where most of the bend is happening, you get a smoother rod that offers more feel.

All 3 piece and packaged beautifully in an aluminium tube. Available in 6 models including.

Great rod

I thought about this one for a while, didn’t really know if I needed it. Broke a rod from a different maker which was going to take some time to repair, so ended up pulling the trigger on this one. Love it so far. Light, accurate and beautiful. No regrets. The 3 piece thing is a bit unusual but does contribute to the overall excellent feel of this rod. My first ever fly rod was a Sage, 25 years later, this is my second. Why did I wait so long?
