Product Description

Sage Salt HD 690-4 fly rod

9’0″ 6-weight, 3 3/4 oz., 4-piece fly rod with case and liner


  1. By some measure, this is my favorite Sage Saltwater 6-weight that I have ever cast. The previous Salt 690-4 felt more like a trout rod to me, lacking the tip and mid-section stability to really drive the line in wind. The new model displays obvious merits of the HD technology. It’s really hard to throw a bad loop with this thing, but it doesn’t feel clunky or overbuilt in any respect. Both freshwater and saltwater anglers will enjoy the pure casting qualities and cagey fishing characteristics of this light line big fish fly rod.

    Lines: Rio and SA Bonefish tapers, SA Amplitude Bonefish, SA MPX and Rio Gold for freshwater, Rio Outbound (both floating and sink tip) and SA Triple Density lines

  2. This rod was such a huge improvement over the Salt 690. The Salt 690 felt more like a stout trout rod than a light saltwater rod. The Salt HD 690 is a true saltwater 6 weight, made to generate line speed and drive a tight loop into the wind with a bonefish sized fly. The Rio Bonefish WF6F was a spot on match and the Salt HD 690 carried the line amazingly well through the air with superb loop control. The rod loaded and unloaded smoothly and confidently while transmitting a surprising level of feel back to the caster. I did not want to put the rod down. It was such a pleasurable rod to cast. This is the stick for advanced flats fisherman looking for a light touch with smaller flies in the #8-#4 range. When accuracy and delicacy are the most important factors on the flats reach for this rod. When the wind kicks up though don’t be afraid to stick with this rod. The action, the taper and the Konnetic HD material allow the caster to adjust their style to suit the conditions.
