Our Guide Manager Reid Baker just led our Switch Rod and Spey casting lesson last week and was able to field test and write a gear review about two Sage ONE switch Rods. Reid has extensive experience fishing in British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest. He and our students cast the Sage ONE 5116-4 and 6116-4 and these rods produced results. If you are interested in an in depth review of this rod and why it is a great stick for the Rocky Mountain West this is a great gear review – here’s a taste.
