NFR SageOne


The wanted posters say Tim Hartman
Yeah, you're probably right.

Bainbridge Sage (which is just a few miles up the road from me) has been around since 1980 and the other business since 1981.

I don't know when the One rod was introduced but I expect the two businesses have not butted heads too much in the last 30+ years given the different markets in which they exist!

Although usually the truck radio is just background noise to me, this time my ears really perked up when I heard "Sage One"!

Trademarks cover a wide level of product/service classes so Sage One is a trademark of Sage Fly Fishing filed with the USPTO for the product class for sporting goods. There may be a other Sage One trademarks owned by other companies for other product classes (financial services, food, consrtuction etc).

Typically you can't copyright two common words used together (like stop light).
