Sage is apparently not building 2 wt rods.

#1
Several years ago, I bought a Sage blank from a fly shop, and had a professional rod builder
make me a nice little 2 wt rod. My rod building skills are non existant, He made me a wonderful
stick and I hung a little flyweight reel from it. It is like a magic wand to fish.

For what ever reason, I was looking at the web site for Sage and they seem to be selling everything above 3 wt and in mostly fast action rods. I would think that there would be a good market for a
light 2 wt rod but perhaps other rod makers have filled it.

Maybe I am missing something. I usually am.

They make the lightest rod in the world (non custom) all the way down to 000wt.

I have the 2wt txl-f and it is the best thing I have ever casted in my life. So much fun. Weighs about 3oz with reel on it. Not to mention how goregeous it is.

If you have any questions about it ill be happy to help.

You could pobably find some of the old versions cheap. They were called TXL. They are 3 pieces and a bit heavier. The new ones (txl-f) are 4pc and 33% lighter.

Yep, I missed it. You are correct. Those lightweights are so much fun on even big water. I like to fish the near side with mine.
Those little buggers make it feel like a steelhead in fast water.

Another gift is that those little rods feel like a majic wand in your hand. You really don't have to work too hard to have fun.

Then another gift is watching that line snake out and land so softly on the water. Like poetry in motion.

You know, I have never fished the SF of the Snoqualmie. I have lived within a few miles of the main river for years, and only fished it on two occasion. Perhaps it is time to change all that.

Lemme see, I got a rod, I got a reel, got line and leaders. Got flies.
Need water.....
