What We Say I’m a big believer that having the right saltwater fly line matters. I’ve had lines that were too subtle and light which made casting in the wind difficult. I’ve also had lines that were great to cast in the wind but when they hit the water it was like a bomb exploding – and bonefish don’t like bombs exploding close by.
The last time I brought a brand new reel down to a saltwater environment without having fished it before, things did not end well. After the first fish I hooked took it on a blistering 150 yard run the reel failed and I struggled trying to hand line the fish in. I was not a happy camper.
What We Say My favorite trout rod here in Colorado is the Sage ONE 490-4. It is light – it is accurate – and I can use it in a variety conditions. I decided to see if the Sage ONE 890-4 would have the same attributes and chose it as my go-to saltwater fly rod on a recent trip to the Bahamas. I was happy with my decision.
