In recent years, there has been a significant rise in the popularity of pike and musky fly fishing. Pike fishing has especially grown in European and Scandinavian fisheries. Based on this demand and the success of the 7’11” BASS II family, Sage is introducing two new rods targeted specifically at pike and musky fishing. Based on the fast action, powerful BASS II rods, the PIKE and MUSKY rods come in a 9’ length to better handle heavy fly lines and wind-resistant flies that are used to target these species.

Sage Musky 1190-4 Specifications
  • Fast action 
  • Generation 5 construction 
  • Includes new RIO Pike/Musky WF F/I line 
  • Extended fighting butt for figure eights 
  • Oversized stripping guide and tip top 
  • Saltwater safe reel seat and components 
  • Ballistic cloth rod/reel case

So far so good. I have only cast the rod on a lawn. I'm not a pro caster, nor a bad caster and can launch a 1" diameter foam popper with a bunch of hackles 80' with no false cast---that's with a double haul and shooting line on the back cast. As of yet I can not make the same cast with the same fly with my saltwater 10 wt. Hopefully that means I'll be at least be able to make 50-60' casts all day long under normal fishing conditions. The extended fighting butt takes some getting used too. It's definately going to help keep my casting honest--I only feel the butt against my forearm if my wrist bending too much. The Rio line shows allot of promise. I think with its' short head it's more effective at delivering big flies than the intermediate striper lines I've used in the past for musky fishing. Having said that I think it will be a perfect delivery system for large bunker flies to surface feeding stripers. From what I can tell, not having Musky fished with the rod, the stiff tip and extended fighting butt will be a great advantage for figure eights. I haven't fished with the rod but I am thinking about buying a second one, so take what you want from this review.
