Video: Fly Fishing Ascension Bay with the New Sage SALT Rod

Sage – Perfecting Performance from Far Bank on Vimeo.

Sage has posted a new video that features their new SALT rod in action in Ascension Bay, Mexico.

From Sage:

“A SAGE ROD IS A PROMISE

A promise that like you, we’re constantly out there
fishing and honing our craft. That we’ve done
everything we possibly can to inject all of our hard-won
knowledge into every rod we make. That we are always
looking at our line-up of rods and asking ourselves,
what’s missing? What can we make better to help you
fish more effectively and catch more fish?

Each Sage rod is a promise to exceed your
expectations for performance and fishability on every
level. That it will help you be the best caster and fly
fisher you can be. That you will find no better rod
on the planet, and we welcome you to fish your way
around the globe trying. We’ll see you out there.”

More on this fly fishing destination:

Ascension Bay, Mexico gets anglers fired up for several reasons. Among the reasons most frequently referenced are permit, bonefish, tarpon, and snook. Of course you can mix in several other critters, but at the least, dreams of grand slams and super slams often bring Ascension Bay’s fish-rich flats to mind.

What’s more, this region is rich with culture, history, and natural resources. Anglers chasing Ascension Bay fly fishing fantasies typically fly into Cancun then trek south several hours. In doing so, anglers pass through Tulum and local ancient Mayan ruins. While history enthusiasts, dooms-dayers, and tourists venture to the area to see the remarkable ruins, for anglers, this is a very worthwhile stop en route to the final destination.

Visitors to Ascension Bay also travel through the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. A UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) World Heritage Site, the Sian Ka’an is the largest protected area in the Mexican Caribbean and is home to an abundance of bird and mammal species as well as endangered sea turtle species.

Finally, the flats of Ascension Bay deliver the species of fish that make for a trip-of-a-lifetime and the beauty that Caribbean-goers fantasize about. White sands and warm turquoise flats. Hermoso.
