Sage FOUNDATION Rod
Equipped with a high-performance blank (Graphite IIIe), the FOUNDATION has a fast action providing excellent casting power and effortless control.
It’s the very foundation of what defines a Sage rod – Performance – taking your game to another level. Whether you are a guide on the Madison or exploring your backyard waters, the FOUNDATION series delivers the signature Sage feel. For over 35 years we’ve built performance rods one at a time on Bainbridge Island, WA. The same 27 sets of skilled hands that craft all Sage rods construct the FOUNDATION.
A light and versatile trout rod, the 490-4 offers great line control without compromising accuracy. Best for dry flies and smaller nymphs.

The 690-4 is a very powerful trout rod, able to cast large, heavy and wind-resistant flies long distances or into heavy winds. Great for big river trout fishing and smallmouth bass.
Sage’s most versatile and popular saltwater rod model. The 890-4 FOUNDATION is able to effectively present flies and handle the fight with bonefish, redfish, striped bass, largemouth bass or other similarly-sized species.
