Product Description

Sage 690-4 MOD fly rod

9’0″ 6-weight 4-pc fly rod

The Sage 690-4 MOD is a rhythmic caster that develops power from a relaxed casting strokes.  One of our favorite rods in the series, the 690-4 MOD is an excellent nymph and streamer rod for the angler who prefers feel over raw power.


  1. What a pleasant surprise. The 6-weight Mod is appropriately stiffer than the 2-6 weights. It casts with a combination of ease and authority at a wide range of distances. I would recommend this model for large dry flies and nymphs, but not specifically for streamers. This is a great rod to take if you expect to fish a variety of techniques during the day. It would honestly cast a size 18 dry fly quite pleasantly, but still has plenty of horsepower for most nymph rigs and small streamers.

    Lines: RIO Gold, Rio Perception, SA MPX, SA Stillwater, all common WF lines of typical head weight. The SA Titan Taper and RIO Grand are not particularly recommended.

  2. I was surprised at how much I liked this 6 weight. Modern 6 weights have become faster and stiffer and a lot of them simply don’t work as a trout 6 weight. This rod couldn’t be further from that. Supreme stability and a smooth transition of power make this rod a top pick for a trout angler looking for more feel and versatility from a 6 weight. This rod was as sweet at 15 to 20 feet as it was out to 50 feet. I would also recommend this rod to the dedicated carp fisherman targeting pressured fish. This rod is a top choice for a Gunnison river 6 weight when you can only take one rod with you.
