Sage and Orvis fly rod demo day

We are excited to be holding our first fly rod demo day!

If you are keen to try some of the best rods in the world, then join us at Josef Chromy vineyard (10 minutes south of Launceston), and have a cast at the latest and greatest rods from Sage and Orvis. We have a great range of stream rods, sightfishing rods, and lake / light saltwater rods specific for the conditions that we all fish in: and this is your chance to try them out, all matched with the optimum line weights and tapers.

Demo rods on site will include the Sage Circa 589-4 (smooth, medium-action river rod), Method 590 (super-powerful sightfishing rod), Grace 590-4 (a brilliant rod for the ladies), One 490 and 691-4 (excellent general purpose rods) , as well as the Orvis Helios 2 865-4 mid-flex (brilliant small and large river rod), and 905-4 Tip Flex (excellent general purpose rod). UPDATED 05/08/2014: Thanks to Sage and Peter Morse, we’ll also have the brand new Sage SALT 9 weight fly rod, and Sage Accel 5 weight fly rod to try.

If you are happy with your current rod, but feel that a different fly line weight or taper might be better, then bring your rod along, and we are happy to help and match the right line to it for you.
