Trout's Fly Fishing is teaming up with Denver Trout Unlimited, and is proud to present the 5th Annual South Platte Pro-Am Carp Slam, a fly fishing
tournament that raises money to repair the South Platte River as it runs through the
Denver Metropolitan area.

Denver Trout Unlimited, the organization that stages the tournament, believes that the
metro section of the South Platte can be greatly improved and is taking steps to help fix
the river and surrounding habitat.  DTU’s vision is to create urban oasis, an escape
from asphalt and traffic, and a place to teach kids to fish, boat or care about the

Sage 3880 CF Fly Reel - Gear Review

August 18, 2011
Author: Trouts Staff

The most obvious feature of Sage's 3800 CF Series of reels is its very minimal weight, the carbon fiber spool allows for a reel that is, in most cases, a full ounce lighter than similarly sized competitors. While maintaining the benefit of minimal weight, the full machined cage packs a drag that is built for work, easily putting the brakes on bulldogging South Platte Carp, with a few more clicks of power to spare.

The All New SAGE ONE - Redefining casting accuracy and fly rod construction

August 3, 2011
Author: Trouts Staff

Every so often, a new product comes around that revolutionizes the way we look at certain fly fishing products.  The Simms Vibram boots for example have set an industry wide precedent as to how rubber soled wading boots should perform, and the Scientific Angler Sharkskin Fly Line completely changed the way we all look at fly lines.  Yet when it comes to fly rods, nothing truly notable has come around in the past few years.  Sure we have seen Boron material used by Winston, and Nano Resign used by G-Loomis, St. Croix, and Hardy.  But other than making fly rods lighter and supposedly stronger, the performance of fly rods really hasn't changed all that much.  That is until the Sage ONE came around.

The ONE rod is the first fly rod to take advantage of Sage’s groundbreaking Konnetic™ technology. The ONE offers exceptional tracking with virtually no lateral or torsional movement, resulting in astonishing casting accuracy that is unparalleled in the marketplace.  The inherent strength of Konnetic technology allows ONE rods to have a smaller diameter and are 25% lighter than comparable Sage rods. These attributes combine to provide augmented aerodynamic efficiency. Further innovations are the 70% lighter, low profile ferrules that help direct and carry energy through the rod without sacrificing strength, critical action and feel.
