Sage SALT HD Fly Rod // Grand Slam Saltwater Setup

This outfit combines what are arguably "the best at both". Sage makes great rods, Hatch makes great reels. This outfit is designed for anglers tackling light inshore species like the Grand Slam species. This includes Bonefish, Permit, Tarpon, and Snook. It doesn't exclude critters like Barracuda, Jacks, or light work for Trevally on the Pacific side. This outfit is a premium setup and an extremely well balanced outfit. We install the backing extremely tight and you can count on us to put this together for your big saltwater adventure.



Sage Salt HD Grand Slam Package Includes:



Recommendations for Rod Weights vs. Fish Species


67 WT: Skinny water / floating line / calm conditions / presentation quality for smaller, lighter flies. These rods will handle almost all Bonefish applications as a dedicated rod.
8 WT: All-around light duty / floating & sinking lines / increased fish fighting backbone / presentation quality for variety of fly sizes. Perfect "go to" rod for all around fishing. Capable of a delicate delivery for Bonefish, but would be right at home for Snook or Baby Tarpon.
9 WT: Permit / sinking lines / increased casting power for fighting wind and delivering bigger flies, and some small to mid-sized Tarpon work.
10 WT: Small tarpon & big permit / increased casting power for throwing oversized air resistant fly patterns. In wind 10 weights cast weighted flies straighter and more accurately. Something to consider for serious Permit fisherman. Jack Crevalle beware and it would be a great Dorado rod. Just be careful around the boat when landing them with a #10.

Straight and very accurate November 25, 2018
Reviewer: Leonard R. from Palo Alto, CA  
I was heading out on a trip for Christmas Island with a group my brother in law put together and admittedly it was my first trip to a saltwater destination.  I wanted to get one good outfit that would work for as many different species as possible so I got the 9 weight and couldn't be happier.  I didn't want to buy a budget outfit and am glad that I did this package.  The line and reel worked perfectly. I just rinsed it with freshwater each day. Great outfit and the reel was very smooth.  Line was slick and shot as advertised.
