Product Description

Sage Salt HD 1090-4 fly rod

9’0″ 10-weight, 4 7/16 oz., 4-piece fly rod with case and liner


  1. This is the most improved rod in the series. The former Salt 1090-4 had enormous power, but required substantial power input from the caster. Otherwise, it wouldn’t flex enough for guys like me to cast it comfortably. The 1090-4 Salt HD has equal or greater power, but is so much more user friendly. Like the 990-4 Salt HD, I recommend a Rio Flats Pro or SA Grand Slam taper with the 1090-4.

  2. I was excited to get a hold of this rod, but also a little nervous, since I have a Salt 1090 in the rod closet right now. The Salt HD 1090 turned out to be a very different rod than the Salt 1090. The most noticeable change is how much easier the Salt HD was to cast compared to its predecessor. I have fished a lot of different lines on my Salt 1090, and never found a 10 wt line that I really liked on the rod. For example, the Rio Permit WF10F was not a great match for the Salt 1090. However, the Salt HD 1090 threw the Permit WF10F line exceptionally well and very easily. Overall, the HD was a much friendlier rod to cast than the Salt. The enormous strength in the lower end of the rod is still there, but a caster can access the middle of the Salt HD 1090 through the cast without gritting his teeth too much. Unlike the Salt 1090, the Salt HD 1090 is a viable heavy permit stick. Distance, accuracy and loop control were all there with the long-headed salt water line. I always felt like the Salt 1090 was more of a Tarpon or GT class 10 weight meant for pulling on fish more than casting. Sage did a great job of making the Salt HD 1090 an easier rod to cast without losing its uncompromising strength and lifting power in the lower end. Choose this rod if you’re the guy who wants one rod that can fish laid up tarpon and bigger permit. This is a perfect big rod for Belize and the Yucatan.
