Spotlight: Sage CIRCA Fly Rod

Ivan Orsic / Jan 10, 2013

Sage CIRCA Fly Rod

In Pursuit of FAST, Sage Reinvented SLOW.

The CIRCA Fly Rod with Konnetic technology is a game changer in the slow-action style of dry fly fishing. Its hypnotically smooth slower tempo combined with crisp and precise loading and unloading of each cast results in unmatched accuracy and delicate presentations.

“I was always a fan of the Sage 389 LL – it became a cult classic,” said shop rod guru Michael Gracie. “When I first cast the CIRCA my first impression was ‘WOW… this is just like a LL… but even lighter.”

The CIRCA is a perfect addition to your rod collection, allowing you to approach a river with stealthy, short-range accuracy.

"We created this rod for anglers who know what it’s like to slow down and really take in the nuances of the sport. Taking the angler back to the essence of fly fishing…dry fly fishing,” said Eric Gewiss, Marketing Manager at Sage. “With this in mind, the CIRCA rod is something that had been on the drawing board for quite some time. Not unlike glass or bamboo, the CIRCA is ideal for the angler with a slower paced casting style but with all the benefits of new technology. With the advent of Konnetic Technology, it permitted Jerry Siem and his team to design and build a small collection of rods that are highly accurate, light in hand and allows for a slower casting style but with a quick recovery. The CIRCA is all about quieting down, slowing down, studying the water, the insects, the fish and matching the hatch.”



  • Advanced slow action

An advanced slow action rod lets an angler execute short to mid range casts with precision accuracy. From Sage’s product review: “Thanks to Konnetic technology’s ability to compact and align more carbon fibers into a smaller diameter blank, we were able to design a radically narrow taper throughout the length of the rod, resulting in consistently slow, yet responsive action from butt to tip. Our new CIRCA rod is a technologically advanced slow-action fly rod that honors your slower, more deliberate casting style, yet is every bit a Sage.”

  • Konnetic technology construction

Konnetic technology allows for a very slim profile and extremely light rod which makes it ideal for repetitive casts and provides the greatest blank strength delivering extremely efficient energy transfer throughout the shaft.
