Sage fly rods are known around the world for quality and performance
Schmidt Outfitters and Sage
Our three decade collaboration with Sage began in 1979. You could say we got in on the ground floor, literally. Founder Ray Schmidt was among the half dozen fly fishing professionals invited to meet in a basement conference room at the Bainbridge Island Holiday Inn to select a name and initial marketing plan for the new fly rod manufacturer. That was the beginning of the world’s largest producer of premium fly rods. Ray Schmidt served on Team Sage for many, many years and was instrumental in helping develop the Sage rods, reels and gear of today. We’re pretty proud of that and can say with confidence that if you’re looking for a dealer who knows Sage products inside and out, you came to the right place.
