“The Sage 99 Fly Rods are the best all around nymph fishing rods. The light action of the rod tends to hook up
well with nymphs in the 14-20 range with indicators, but it still throws big
stones like a champ because of the length. The flex of the rod seems to keep
nymphs from getting tangled with the indicator. The 99 is also VERY popular with float tube
fisherman and pontoon boat fisherman who will fish sitting down and want the
Stop in the shop to purchase your raffle tickets (cash only).
|A day of multi-bug rigs, wind-resistant indicators and the requisite
high-stick rod position can be enough to make your arm fall off before lunch.
But the fact is, there simply isn’t a more reliable, effective technique for
finding big fish. Which is why Sage created the 99.

THANK YOU D and H'ers for your support of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing. Supporting our recovering veterans by offfering your patrons a chance to go nymphing with a Sage 99, and donating the proceeds to PHWFF allows local fly fisherman to continue to provide instruction in fly tying and fly casting, and fishing outings to our veterans. Through the Veterans Administration Medical Center PHWFF has offered 25 learning and fishing opportunities to tristate veterans per year for the last four plus years at no cost to the VA or the participants and this will help us keep doing so.
