A nice yellow Spin Rod with a fancy special fly line?

Thoughts?

What I dont understand is why Sage had to make the rod blank so ugly. I mean Bass guys like cool looking stuff too. Why yellow with brown thread wraps? Why not black blank with grey thread wraps to match the boat better?

The thing that interests me is the possibility of actually entering one of these tournaments.
Now, I am not really sold on all that BASS, high-octane competitive fishing, but a tournament seems like a good enough excuse to spend several 8 hour days on the water (not that I need an excuse). And I've definitely outfished folks with gear on numerous occasions - I am curious to see if the flyrod could hang in there.
I am interested in hearing from people who have competed in bass tournaments with a fly.

Bass on a fly rod?...Ha! yeah right!
Bass, as a rule, only eat jig and pig combos, spinner-baits, and Texas or Carolina rigged worms. Oh yeah, and marabou jigs.
Sage is a good company but I cant understand this bass fly rod thing? I mean if you cant catch them on a fly rod why try to sell it to the pubic?
whatthefuckever!?
I would never buy one of them eagle claw looking broomsticks.
If bass actually bit big flies then they might be worth a look but since they don't I will pass for now.

I fish tournaments some.. havent had a time i needed a flyrod , but i am sure there is a place... alot of trails dont allow them and other have a length limit of 8ft, which is why sage built these.... a 9 and a 11 wt i think... heard alot of good things from a guy that has tested them.... We have some sick mayflie hatches that could be good for a check some years.... also high pressure lakes, and bed fishing could be taken to a new level... alot of B.A.S.S pros grew up flyfishing....shit they didnt they anyone would win big tournaments on swimbaits....but they wont a few million for about 6 pros last yr... i have had life long fishing buddies tell me they wont fish with me again if i use a flyrod...... after i out fish them ...

Dude that has to be a fucking blast...... never caught a smallie on a fly over 2lbs... but havent really been where any big ones live yet either... thanks for posting those pics.... My best on the fly so far was 9.3lb LMB on a 5wt and a wooly bugger i had tied about an hour earlier... I love trout....... but theres just something about bass taking poppers especially...

I would love to take my aluminum boat or even my friggin gheenoe and some flyrods and go beat some of these assholes in the $50,000 boats that think they own the lake... :mrgreen:

Yo HS - that grizzly tin should be skoal.
Where you at?
Ever fish Champlain?

I spent many hours floating my canoe catching smallies on 2 flies - bugger or clouser. Incredible the fight they throw up.
