Introducing The New TXL Series Of Fly Fishing Rods !!!

Click for larger picture. U l t r a -H i g h P e r f o r m a n c e E x t r a -L i g h t Trout R o d s Combine near weightlessness with a groundbreaking level of performance, and you get the new TXL Series rods. Or, in other words, more fun than anyone deserves to have in a pair of waders. Now, through the miracle of Sage's exclusive Generation 5 (G5) Technology, going ultra- light no longer leaves you at the mercy of wind or unexpectedly big fish.  G5 Technology, with Modulus Positioning System (MPS), allows Sage to build an amazingly light fly rod, while increasing strength, smoothness and sensitivity to "line feel." In angling terms, that means you’ll cast better, fish more effectively and enjoy yourself more. Whether you need to make the perfect presentation to that crafty brown who’s seen it all, or simply want to maximize your small stream experience, the TXL redefines the concept of light-line fly fishing.  On the subject of redefining the concept, we’re proud to offer the TXL in the revolutionary new 000, or "double- ought," line weight. These are the lightest fly rods ever made, so Sage also designed a special, custom line for it as well. 
TXL Series rods feature ultra-light snake guides, a unique, round tip- top guide and a micro-stripping guide to enhance performance and keep weight to an absolute minimum. A finely crafted, nickel-silver reel seat with a Vera wood insert and six-inch cigar- style grip complement and perfectly balance the golden olive shaft.  Try a TXL and we think you’ll agree, there’s never been a lighter, more sensitive, high-performance rod made. You’ll also discover that its greatest attribute just might be how much fun you’ll have. 
Available in line weights 000 through 4.

Little Creeks
Canopied over by giant trees and tumbling through a jumble of giant boulders placed on the canyon floor by thousands of years of seasonal floods, the crystal clear water of the little creek enriches the hot mid-day air with comforting coolness. Rainbow and cutthroat trout share the pools in a mixed populations untouched by the hatchery truck. The air is so clear that a butterfly can be identified at a hundred yards. There is no trail, nor other evidence of human intrusion. I am careful to leave no tracks, lest someone else should think there is reason to invade this sanctuary. Fortunately the fish are to small to attract meat or trophy hunters. The rewards here are neither status or protein.

Native Cutthroat Trout...
Native Oregon Coastal Cutthroat and Rainbow Trout inhabit the nearly 100 miles of small streams within a 10 mile radius of our store.
These streams are part of a wild fish sanctuary, and are regulated as catch and release with only artificial lures and flies.

Quiet Double Taper II Fly Lines
Designed to enhance your light-line rod experience. 

Mark lands a Deschutes trout using a Performance Double Taper II fly line

The new Quiet Double Taper II fly line will maximize the action of any light-line, high-performance fly rod.  This is no ordinary double Taper II line either.  Sage custom designed the Quiet double Taper II with a reduced tip diameter, allowing you to make delicate presentations with a shorter, more accurate leader, and narrowed the body to help you shoot farther.  Specifically designed for Sage TXL and ZXL Series Rods, these lines also enhance the performance of Winston B2T, WT and LT Series. These amazing lines really make small rods come alive. During our "lightweight rod" tests the performance change was dramatic when we switched to a Quiet Double Taper II fly line.

Deschutes River Hatch Up-Date
Josh Linn with a Deschutes Redside... Salmonflies mating...
The last seven days brought a mixture of weather: bright sunshine, over-cast, rain, hail, and brief, but violent winds. During the calm times fishing was often very good. Salmonflies and Golden Stones are available in big numbers at Warm Springs, along with hatches of Little Olive Stones, Green Drakes, PMD's, PED's and Caddis. Dropping down stream towards Maupin, the Salmonflies and Golden Stones are fading, and are being replaced by stronger hatches mayflies and Little Yellow Stones. From White River to the Columbia, the big stones are nearly all gone from the Deschutes, but hatches of smaller insects such as caddis and little stones are heavy.  At The Fly Fishing Shop there is a good stock of flies to cover all the hatches.

We just received this picture and testimony from Scotland.

Hi Fly Fishing Shop,

I was fishing last week in Scotland, on the river Dee (Dinnet beat), I caught 6 fresh fish, all with my new Saracione reel IV 4”.

The reel was just perfect for the job. Now I’m looking for Russia where I will stay for 2 weeks From June 13 to 27 I hope to have some good photos to send to you.

Thank you for everything.

All the best.
