Yet another fly fishing niche has been filled with this nifty new range of tiny micro fly fishing rods from Sage.

With the economic climate still looking depressed one way of seeking new revenue streams is to diversify and Sage have led the field once again with the development of a whole new area of fly fishing.

Dubbed "Mini" fly fishing, they are hoping it will spark new interest in developing a whole new sector of fly fishing enthusiasts and therefore customers.

A Sage spokesman said: "The rationale behind this exciting new development is that not everybody lives on triple A rated trout streams or next to perfect saltwater flats full of bonefish. Some of us only have ponds full of panfish like pumpkinseeds and bluegill nearby, or local streams with minnows or maybe even tiny wild trout perhaps if you are lucky. In any case, even the smallest modern rods are often way over-gunned for these tiny species and so the "mini" range was born."

Will the other brands respond? Probably, but it will take some development time so for now Sage have the upper hand.

Yes, it's an April Fools day post, but the "quote" attributed to the phony Sage spokesman is still largely accurate. There really are a lot people who have access to small local waters that are home to small local fish. And it is also true that most people don't fish for them because their rods are all overkill. With a rod actually designed for smaller fish - something a 3 or 4 inch sunnie can put a bend in, catching smaller fish can be fun. And such rods to in fact exist - they're just not from Sage.
