Sage ESN Fly Rod

  • 99500

For European Style Nymphing there is not a better rod than the ESN. This is the very best rod we sell for Euro Nymphing. The design of this rod will keep you in contact with your nymphs when Czech, Polish, French or Spanish style nymph fishing.

If you know what a sighter or slinky is, and you've fished this method before and saw all the potential it has than the ESN is for you. ESN rods are 10 or 11 feet long and have a sensitive tip to help you feel the take. The special process of using a compound tapered mandrel to manufacture the ESN makes the action highly specialized for this style of angling.

Simply said this is a pretty specialized piece of equipment that is very fun to use. I have also found it is a very good Chironomid Rod on the lakes. The ESN is finished to perfection with a Forrest Green Shaft, Dark Green Wraps and a Dark Nickel Colored Reel Seat with a Coco Bolo insert. ESN rods come complete with a Evergreen color powder coated aluminum rod tube and the Sage Lifetime Warranty. —Jeff


Our new ESN was designed specifically for European-style nymphing techniques developed to maximize catch rates.

Built with a KonneticHD backbone, the ESN allows anglers to experience unmatched blank recovery, increased sensitivity, reduced weight-in-hand, and superior shock absorption to better hold fish. The refined medium action has been designed with a variety of long and short line techniques and situations in mind, allowing you to confidently work any stretch of river.  From small creeks to big rivers, the ESN is as dynamic as the water.
