WTB Sage 7136-4 Brownie

Looking for the Sage brownie graphite III 7wt 13 foot 6 inch. This is a 4 pc rod looking for one in good condition preferably with factory sock and tube.

Canadian deals only, I am in Skeena Land so if you are coming up this way for a hand to hand deal even better.

Cheers,

Pat

The Graphite III is the Brownie with a traditional action compared to the GIIIe which is faster. I owned both 7136 and 15' 10 weights. The 7 weights cast the same lines in slightly different ways and the diff is much more notable between the two 10 weights.

Have one and there is no way would I consider parting with that rod. Butter in hand to cast. You could do 'it' with your eyes closed. I have.

Come on guys, it is an old rod and obsolete, get rid of it to put your down payment on the latest greatest 7136 Sage One….lol

In all seriousness though Fred do not feel bad for me I have lots of very nice fly rods and finding this one eventually will just be a bonus.

Thanks, I bought the IIIe from someone on here a couple months ago; just haven't had a chance to use it yet. I usually prefer faster rods so I think I'll like it...so many rods, so little time

You're welcome and I should've revised my post to read "The Brownies are the Graphite III rods and..."

The GIIIe are a distinct olive-brown and have heard of them referred to as "Tiger Eye." I'm not sure why - maybe for the recognizable jet-black band bordered within silver-nickle trims in the butt section and in the ferrules.

I always figured it was because the color looks like the tiger eye marbles we used to have as kids - usually the shooter.

For me, the glass is neither half-empty nor half-full, but rather twice as big as it needs to be.
