Sage Maverick Saltwater Fly Rod

Saltwater angling is more often a game of quick shots than long casts. Dropping a fly in front of a cruising tarpon 20 ft. off the bow can be the difference between success and failure during a day on the flats. In fact, most saltwater fisheries put a premium on getting the fly to the target quickly. Redfish meandering about Louisiana marshes, bonefish cruising marl-covered flats, and stripers slashing at bait all require a quick cast into the zone for high odds at a hookup. The quicker you can lay the fly down, the better the results. 

The Sage® Maverick™ has been designed to maximize these quick-shot opportunities with a powerful tip section that drives the casting load down to more robust lower sections, making it easier to fire these quick efficient casts and helping the angler make the most of their finite opportunities. With a true saltwater specific backbone and design, the Maverick is ready for any salty challenge thrown its way.
