THE ONE from Sage Up-To-Date
The name Sage runs deep in the Spey Comunity. It runs so deep that some beginners in the game don't realize how deep, because they haven't been around long enough. Sage has been the one rod building company for the last thirty years, that all other rod brands are compared to. Somewhere during any rod-comparison conversation, someone is bound to ask, "But is it as good as a Sage, and the answer from the more experienced anglers will range ftom, "Hell no, to mmm-doubful?" Rod actions, and technology are endlessly debateable, but the track record of Sage for the past thirty years has been dominance in the marketplace, fuelled by a large dose of "consistance and reliability." And no...one will ever sneer if you bring your Sage to some fancy Northern Salmon camp. If anyone asks, you can just answer with, "I realy like my Sage Rods", and they will understand, end of discussion, you won, and are recognizeed as part of the "BIG BOY CLUB".
Sage has always been an innovator in graphite rod blank technology. Their latest masterpiece is called is call Konnetic technology. It involves placing the graphite fibers in each rod blank in perfect alignment to gain casting accuracy and recovery time. Single-hand Sage ONE rods made with Kt have been well-received in the market place. So have Sage ONE Spey Rods, which might be characterized as medium-fast, easy to deep-load for blazing line-speed. Kt has incredibly quick recovery speed. It probably recovers as fast as any other rod building material out there, but is smoother, and more predictable during the casting stroke, which makes for easy casting.

Sage ONE Spey Rods rock! Our team has cast most of the Sage ONE Spey models, and universally they have found favor. Sage ONE's have been super-popular at The Sandy River Spey Clave as well. In fact, they were so popular at the 2013 Clave that it was hard to get one at the Sage booth for trial. George Cook brought lots of rods to that Clave, and has promised to bring even more to the 2014 Clave, so everyone can try them.
The four models, which have proven to be most popular on our waters have been 7136-4, 6126-4 ONE, 8126-4 and 7126-4, which is understandable, since we live in steelhead country. Next time you call on a Monday or Tuesday, ask Mike Varga how he likes his 6126-4 ONE. His ONE word sentence will be, "SWEET".

Joe Currier holding a native steelhead that ate a tube snake fly while fishing with Brian Silvey.

Silvey's Tube Snake
This is a logical variation on the popular Tandem Tube Fly.  The Tube Snake is a lightweight Intruders style fly with lots of spots and stripes that mimic the coloration of prawns and

squid, some of steelhead and salmon's favorite ocean food.  These flies have a lot of action in the water that makes them look alive.  They are relatively easy to cast, but fish "large" in the water. Each Tube Snake comes pre-rigged with 24" of 10-pound Ultra Green tippet, complete with a perfection loop so it is easy to attach to your leader.

Silvey's Tube Snake, Black & Blue
 A favorite fly for both winter and summer for glacial streams that drain the great volcanoes of the Cascade Mountain Range. Black and blue is well proven on the Sandy, Clackamas and Klickitat as well as many British Columbia rivers. Proven most productive on dark rainy days, black and blue flies are one of the most popular winter fly color combinations..

Silvey's Tube Snake, Blue & Purple
 
Purple is one of the most effective colors for fishing early in the morning or late in the evening on almost any river that contains summer steelhead. Brian Silvey added a touch of blue to make this fly stand out even more.

Skagit Compact Heads          NEW! Complete Skagit Compact Head Kit



Airflo lines are very smooth!

Spey casting is easier to learn with instruction...
Spey casting is more easily learned with instruction.

New in 2008, this new shorter and more compact head instantly made a huge impact in both design influence and sales within the industry. It is still one of the most popular lines of its type in the world. The Skagit Compact heads were designed to make fishing in tough places easier. The heads were developed with the help of serious line nerds and Skagit guides like Dec Hogan, who made their living being able to get the fly down to the fish with limited room to make a "D" loop. These lines increment every 30 grains from 360 to 720, ensuring you will never need to cut and splice a line ever again. The heads range from 22 to 27 feet, come with the toughest loop design in the industry, and are now numbered and color coded so you will never need to confuse one line from another."

Skagit Master 2 SKAGIT MASTER VOLUME 3 Steelhead Flies Beyond the Books
New Water Media
Skagit Master 3 presents modern concepts in steelhead fly design. No single steelhead pattern is a silver bullet. Confidence in the fly you choose plays a major role in your success. But thinking beyond what you learned in the "how to" books of the past often results in some cool fly concepts.

Skagit Master 3 features a few modern patterns and the

steelheaders who tie them: Hannah Belford, Tom Larimer, Eric Neufeld, Jeff Hickman, Ed Hepp and of course Scott Howell, Ed Ward and Jerry French.

Steelhead flies showcased: The Grizzly Bear, Reverse Marabou, Orange Blossom, Fish Taco, Underachiever, Ska-opper and an Ed Ward Intruder.

Skagit Master 3 is much more than a fly tying film: The steelheaders in the show invite you into their world. A series of underwater studies examine light and dark flies in various water and light conditions. A flow tank is used to present each pattern in a controlled environment.

Filmed in the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia, Skagit Master 3 is the third production in the five part Skagit Master series. Go To: www.skagitmaster.com to purchase the entire Skagit Master collection.
