Sage R8 Complete Multi-Purpose Trout Setup // Spooled, Rigged, and Ready to Fish 

Why Purchase a Complete Setup? 

Why have we made these pairings, these complete outfits? The answer is simple: We believe strategically paired tackle makes an angler better prepared for success on any given watershed on any given day. As such, we’ve compiled a list of multi-purpose trout rods capable of casting dries, nymphs, and small streamers with precision and purpose. In each complete setup you’ll find top-shelf tackle constructed by the elite companies in our industry—manufactures who’ve earned legacies of excellence through years of dependability and innovation. We are confident these outfits will surpass expectations and serve as the conduit to endless memories through days spent out on the creek. Tight lines.  

Sage R8 and Galvan Torque Reel 

For most of us, an idyllic day on the water is not when we're thinking more, but when we're thinking less. Finding that state of fishing in the moment, where instinct and experience bring us to an almost zen-like awareness of each subtle motion and movement--that's what the R8 CORE is all about. With the R8 CORE, Sage has enhanced that two-way connection from hand to fly and back for greater feel, flow and control. This amplified, two-way feedback loop--due to Sage's new axial fiber formulation-- allows you to feel when power needs applied throughout the cast, presentation, and when to utilize appropriate pressure when fighting a fish--ultimately giving you, the angler, complete control. 

Fly Line For The All Purpose Rod 

A fly line constructed for all purpose fishing can make or break success. The name of the game is quality, as such, Scientific Angler's Amplitude Smooth Infinity is the perfect pairing for dries, nymphs, and if needed, small streamers. Supple yet rigid enough to cast razor sharp loops, the Amplitude Smooth will serve as a dependable, high-performance line for a vast majority of situations encountered on the creek. 

Fishing Leader and Tippet 

For this complete kit we've included a two-pack of Rio's 9' 3x leader, a standard used in the majority of the guide boats here at Red's, as well as Rio's Powerflex Plus 3x tippet. This grouping of line material is standard for pursuing trout on western watersheds and trusted amongst countless anglers due to Rio's track record of top-shelf gear.
