Sage DT 00WT Fly line w/ backing. Sage Ballistic Rod Tube & Reel Case Combo (new).
Dont let the 00wt fool you. This is a serious fly rod for small streams.
I have hooked and landed many 12 trout with this rod. I had a 15 brown trout surprise me and take my elk hair caddis.
I was able to land him fairly quickly, but this rod is better suited for smaller fish. I used to fish a couple small streams near my home. The average fish was 8 10, and using this rod they all felt like monsters. The rod has a casting range (for me) of 30. The rod loads quickly which makes those short little casts easy.The reel is loaded with a Sage Double Taper 00wt fly line that roll casts with ease. I built this rod about 15 years ago to fish small streams near my home.
I broke the tip after using it for a few years. I stuffed it into a rod tube to deal with later. A couple of moves later I discovered the broken rod packed away in storage.
I sent the rod to Sage for inspection and a replacement tip section. Ive rebuilt the tip section.
The reel is a Lamson Litespeed LS1 that was manufactured 2006. The finish is called smoke. The first hard Alox reels.This is a used rod & reel and I want to be up front on the condition of the rod, reel, and fly line. Reel seat shows some wear on the wood and nickel silver hardware.
Rebuilt rod tip the thread I used to build this rod is no longer available. I tried to match it the best I could but the new thread is slightly darker than the original. Reel there are a few light scratches on the back of the reel. They are very shallow, I cant feel them when I run my finger over them. Fly line this fly line is 15 years old.Ive inspected it and I cant see any cracks or breakdowns in the fly line. Sage 7ft 10in 00wt 3pc TXL fly rod blank.

My rods are all hand wrapped not by machines or cheap foreign labor. I take my time to insure that every wrap is lined up perfectly. This is the best part the price of a custom built rod is usually less than a factory built. This is what one client said after he received his custom made fly rod.
