The Sage Approach Outfit Fly Rod and Reel Package includes everything you need to take you from learning how to cast on the front lawn to landing your first fish out on the river. This solid kit from Sage includes the American made medium fast action Approach rod, lightweight aluminum 2200 reel, Rio Gold Line, and a tough rod and reel case. The Approach Rod features Sage's Graphite III technology, which allows beginners to quickly improve their casting skills and won't leave them feeling like they've outgrown the rod after their first season. The medium fast action makes for excellent line feel, and is easy to control, especially for beginners. Not only is the Approach an easy rod to learn how fly fish on, but like all Sage Rods it's made on Bainbridge Island in Washington, USA. The included 2200 reel includes many of the same features that can be found on Sage's more high end set ups. These features include the SCS sealed carbon system drag for a liquid smooth feel, large arbor for quick line pick ups, comfortable ergonomic handle, and numbered drag settings, so you know exactly how much pressure you're putting on the fish. Weight forward RIO Gold fly line makes learning to cast as painless as possible and works well whether you're perfecting delicate dry fly presentations, or getting down and dirty with a heavily weighted nymph rig.
