Fly fishing industry leader, Sage Manufacturing, announced the release of its 2014 premier collection of high performance rods called the METHOD series. These ultra-fast fly rods use Sage’s proprietary Konnetic technology. The METHOD delivers high line speeds and tight loops for extreme distance and wind-cutting casts all while maintaining critical accuracy and feel.
“Being able to offer fly rods that perform to the expectations of the most demanding anglers in any casting situation is the main reason behind designing the METHOD. Sage’s DNA is synonymous with fast-action rods, and through Konnetic technology, we’ve taken seriously smooth, ultra-fast action performance to a new place entirely,” comments Sage Chief Rod Designer, Jerry Siem. “Our newest high performance rods will make any caster better but will help experienced casters notch exceptional casts with regularity.”
“Overall, the fast action ONE rod is still and will continue to be our flagship series for a wider range of anglers,” notes Sage Marketing Manager, Eric Gewiss. “The METHOD series makes it possible to take casting abilities to whole new level. It performs quickly and accurately close-in, but if anglers are looking for an ultra-fast action rod that is lightweight, exceptionally smooth yet has the extra punch for farther casts and windy conditions, this rod is for you.”
Twelve single-hand models will be available in 4-6 weights for freshwater with a cocobolo wood insert and black reel seat components paired with a snub-nose, half-wells grip. The saltwater capable 6-11 weights feature a black aluminum reel seat and a full wells handle and fighting butt. Nine Spey and switch models feature a high-grade cork fore and rear grip. The METHOD rods will range in price from $800-$1,050 and will be available August 1, 2013. Blanks will also be available for each model.

Fly du Jour Special Edition  BUY NOW!

 This fly was an instant success. Clients called it, "Fly du Jour" (fly of the day).
The name stuck and this pattern has remained in the spotlight for about twenty years.

Fly du Jour
Hook: Alec Jackson Steelhead Iron NSI
Thread: Red Uni 8/0
Tag: Flat Silver Mylar
Butt: Fluorescent Pink Edge Bright, NO LONGER AVAILABLE
Body:
Ice Dub, Purple
Rib: Flat Silver Myla

Hackle: Purple Saddle
Wing:  Selected Hair Wing, White Kid Goat
            Fluorescent Pearl Krystal Flash, Cerise KF02
Head:  Red
Common Sizes: This fly is most often used in sizes five and seven in rivers like The Deschutes, John Day, Grand Ronde and Clear Water
.

  The "Fly du Jour" has been proven on all sizes of rivers and during a wide range of water temperatures, and conditions.  It is one of the have-to-have flies no matter where you fish steelhead along the Pacific Rim. The Fly du Jour may be the best of all the Deschutes summer steelhead flies for floating line fishing the majority of the season.  Ninety percent of the season it is my point or dropper fly of choice.  Just another purple and pink fly?  Maybe?  There are many.  Purple and pink is a popular theme on the Deschutes with such patterns as Rick's Revenge, Silvey's Sno Cone, and the Freight Train being examples.  The Fly du Jour is different because it uses a revolutionary material called Edge Bright for the orangish pink butt.  Edge Bright is a material that gathers light through its broad side and amplifies it through its narrow edge. It is wrapped on the fly so that the rear edge of every wrap is exposed.  Viewed from the rear this butt literally glows.  The effect is further enhanced with the butt surrounded by a halo of dark purple materials.  Sorry to say that Edge is no longer made, and we only have enough to tie our own flies, and when they are gone...we don't know of any material that can take their place. The Fly du Jours in stock may be the last ever.
The pattern was an instant success when it was introduced in 1990.  In the space of a couple of weeks two different groups of clients who didn't know each other called it the Fly du Jour (fly of the day), and that is how it got it's name.  These "Special Edition" Fly du Jours are tied on Alec Jackson Nickel Plated Steelhead Iron hooks. This is a well proven fly, having been used for many years by our guide service. The Alec Jackson hook is noticeably heavier than the original TMC hook, which allows the fly to ride a little deeper in the water. The nickel plating increases the flash factor.
There are #3 Fly du Jours for winter fishing. Tie one on during your next trip to the coast.

As with all of Sage's SCS (Sealed Carbon System) configurations the Floating Tripod is sealed and impervious to outside elements such as sand, grit and salt, requiring no maintenance beyond simple rinsing...tough, smooth, waterproof!
