Saltwater angling is more often a game of quick shots than long casts. Dropping a fly in front of a cruising tarpon 20ft off the bow can be the difference between success and failure during a day on the flats. In fact, most saltwater fisheries put a premium on getting the fly to the target quickly. Redfish meandering about Louisiana marshes, bonefish cruising marl-covered flats, and stripers slashing at bait all require a quick cast into “the zone” for high odds at a hookup. The quicker you can lay the fly down, the better the results. Sage’s new MAVERICK has been designed to maximize these quick-shot opportunities with a powerful tip section that drives the casting load down to more robust lower sections, making it easier to fire these quick efficient casts and helping the angler make the most of their finite opportunities. With a true saltwater specific backbone and design, the MAVERICK is ready for any salty challenge thrown its way.
A rock-solid go-to saltwater rod. Built with a powerful blank for quick shots and pulling on hard fighting ocean-dwelling gamefish, the MAVERICK gets it done. From highly finicky Bonefish in glassy conditions with the 690-4, Striped Bass on the beaches with the 990-4, strings of migratory Tarpon with the 1190-4, or even blue-water Tuna with the 1486-4, the MAVERICK series carries the right rod for any salty pursuit.
