Sage ESN Fly Fishing Rod
EUROPEAN NYMPHING / MEDIUM ACTION
The tight-line nymphing power tool. Every detail of the ESN series is specifically designed around tight-line nymphing, from the down-locking reel seat to the soft and highly sensitive tip. Whether you’re seeking extreme sensitivity with the 2100-4, an extra bit of reach with the 3106-4, or a sturdy fish-lifting backbone with the 4100-4, the ESN series has the right tool for your quiver.
Our ESN was designed specifically for Europeanstyle nymphing techniques developed to maximize catch rates. Built with a KonneticHD backbone, the ESN allows anglers to experience unmatched blank recovery, increased sensitivity, reduced weight-in-hand, and superior shock absorption to better hold fish. The refined medium action has been designed with a variety of long and short line techniques and situations in mind, allowing you to confidently work any stretch of river. From small creeks to big rivers, the ESN is as dynamic as the water.

SNUB-NOSE HANDLE AND DOWN-LOCKING REEL SEAT FOR OPTIMAL BALANCING
Built on a Konnetic HD material platform, the carbon-dense design and soft tip allows for the utmost in sensitivity while tight-line nymphing, offering the angler the ability to detect even the most subtle of subsurface takes.
Every detail in the ESN series is designed around maximum efficiency for the most technical of tight-line nymph anglers. This means that the extremely lightweight blank and minimal componentry aren’t the only contribution to the featherweight feel in hand, but a down-locking aluminum reel seat pulls the balance point even closer to the angler allowing for less fatigue while keeping the rod tip high.
SUPERIOR SHOCK ABSORPTION
The soft tip of the ESN allows for superior protection of the finest tippet and leaders. Combined with a powerful lower end, the ESN is able to effectively lift fish out of deep lies and heavy water without sacrificing tippet protection.
KonneticHD Technology is the next era in performance graphite rods. Optimizing our graphite-to-resin ratio, we have created a higher density (HD) fiber composite, resulting in lighter, stronger blanks which deliver unmatched recovery, energy transfer, and line/loop control. Building upon proprietary construction techniques developed for Konnetic Technology, KonneticHD gives us an elevated platform to achieve new levels in rod design.
