New to fly fishing. Help me pick my first rod.

Agreed. The Sage Foundation 590-4 is a great all-around rod at a decent price point (for Sage, that is) and it is more than just a beginner rod. I still use mine from time to time, even though I have a Sage X and a Sage One.

You can buy a Foundation rod for $350 and an entire outfit for $575. If you want a cheaper option, Redington outfits including reel go for $169 and up. Redington and Sage are sister companies and they are both fine options.

What floating line do you like on your Sage One?
