Going from your fast action five weight to a slow action three weight can leave you with some wonky casts that will ultimately spook the kind of fish that like to hideout in the stretches of pocket water that make up most small creeks and streams. Traditionally, going light meant having to sacrifice line speed and casting feel, but Sage is changing that with its Little One Fly Rod. Essentially, the Little One is a smaller version of Sage's flagship One fly rod, and as a result, the rod is only available in trout specific weights and lengths that will perform best when fishing the types of small creeks and streams that demand short, precise, and careful presentations.As you might expect from a rod in this class, the Little One is made with top shelf components and features Sage's iconic Konnetic Technology, which delivers tight loops and exceptional line delivery, and with a weight that is truly ultralight. The actual blank has a black ice color, which is complemented by black thread wraps that are accented with a bronze trim. The distinguishing snub nose handle handle has that distinctive Sage look, while the walnut spacer and bronze up locking reel seat give the Little One that classic look we all want from a dedicated trout rod. Like all Sage Rods, the Little One is made in America and comes with an aluminum rod tube with a cloth bag to protect your investment.
