The Ultimate Steelhead Double Hand Outfit
Father of the underhand cast and designer to many of Sage's first Spey rods, this fly rod is Göran's Andersson's best work to date. His 12' 6/7 weight fly rod is perfectly at home on steelhead rivers like the Deschutes, Grande Ronde, John Day, Rogue, Trinity and the Klamath. It's got plenty of casting power to turn over larger flies like Scott Howell's Squidro, yet still is enjoyable when skating dries, like the Ska-opper or classic wet flies, but it still has the power to land big fish. In fact it's the favored rod at Bulkley River Lodge in British Columbia. This rod can really do it all.
We've gone all out by including Göran's favorite reel, the Loop Opti Runner. This fully-machined, ultra-large arbor fly reel serves up faster line retrieve and a consistent drag setting for the sealed drag system. It balances perfectly with Göran's 6120-4 fly rod. To round out the line system, we've paired it up with a Loop running line and Rio's Skagit Flight head (450 grain), for the ultimate in casting performance and fishing function.
Make sure to add Rio's Skagit MOW Tip Kit (Light). It comes complete with all the tips you'll need for the ever-changing waters that steelhead call home. You can easily change tips ensuring your fly is at the correct, fish-catching depth.
