Best New Fly Rod
There is no doubting the story of 2011 in the fly rods sector. The Sage One rod was launched at EFTTEX to huge acclaim and duly took home the top prize.
This year Sage returns with the Sage CIRCA Collection, a series of rods which harness Sage’s advanced Konnetic Technology to give a highly accurate slow action. Will the US manufacturer win again in Paris?
The bulk of the competition comes from Europe. It includes the latest in the popular Snowbee Prestige series; the A. Jensen Spook LL, which is slim, light and powerful; and the JMC Excellence, which uses the 3MTM POWERLUXTM composite to give it its power.
But maybe Crony will become the first Chinese company to win the Best New Fly Rod Award. It has high hopes for its Crony GC Pro. All will be revealed in Paris in June.
