Carry at least two colors of sighter material in your pack? Know how much each of your flies weigh in grains? Take every opportunity to bend your buddies’ ear on silver vs copper bead colors or the latest version of a squirmy wormy fly? If these things sound familiar, then you’re probably hooked on European Style Nymphing. And if you are, you know a reel is much more than just a line holder.
In steps the Sage ESN reel. Packed with a suite of specialty features, this reel is designed specifically with the Euro-Nymph angler in mind and is fine tuned to the nuances of the application. Built around a super thin and large diameter arbor, this design now makes it easier to get fish on the reel quickly, minimizing the need to guide line onto the spool with your finger, all while providing consistent drag output.
A unique balance system allows anglers to assemble and fine tune a set of weights, so the ESN reel can perfectly balance any Euro Nymphing (or standard) rod. Add in a full frame that prevents fine leaders and lines from sneaking through the frame and sealed carbon drag system that provides a smooth uptake – leaving you with the ultimate fish-catching machine.
Adjustable Weights for Balance
The ESN reel comes in one size, containing 3 interchangeable accessory weights (1/2oz, 1oz, and 1 1/2oz), and is appropriate for dialing in any Euro Nymphing setup on the market.
Available in both Stealth and Chipotle colorways.
