Sage 3200 Series Fly Reel

Budget-friendly reel for the value-conscious angler.

As you lock the Sage 3200 Fly Reel in place, you marvel at its quality components. This large arbor reel features a fully machined aluminum frame, generous concave spool surface, whisper-smooth carbon drag, and unexpected finishing touches like its fully machined drag knob and handle that give the fish more than they bargained for. Spool change-outs are quick, straightforward, and clean while its reel wind direction makes switching from right- to left-hand retrieve a cinch. Similar to Sage's well-liked 4200 reel series, the 3200 offers you the quality you've come to expect from Sage, but with a budget-friendly price tag.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Paired this with a new Sage Approach. This is to replace my old redington 5wt. I have only taken it out once so far and I love it. Has a very smooth feel, great drag adjustments, very high quality appearance and finish. No complaints yet, it was a big jump from my last reel. Went to my secret spot and caught a nice tiger.


Wow! Beautiful Pic and beautiful fish!

Sage 3200 Reel 4wt

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This reel is awesome! Coming from a Redington Surge reel, this one feels very smooth and retrieves line fast. Love the sealed carbon drag system so no worries about getting it soaked. The 1 turn revolution drag knob makes it easy to set your drag.


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought this in a 3 weight to pair with my Sage ONE rod. It is an excellent set up. Incredibly smooth drag, very easy to detach the spool and clean or swap for other line. The large arbor holds a TON of line, (I got 80ft of backing and 80ft of line) and the machine finish on the reel is super pretty.

Message to the fish,"I'm coming for ya!!!"


Super Smooth Reel.

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Gave this reel as a gift, needless to say the recipient was super stoked. Super smooth reel and an incredible long-term investment.

Love this reel

    I put this reel on the Sage response 5 wt rod and this combination is great. I have landed 12lb Rainbow’s with no problems. I like the fact I can flip the spool with my finger to get the line back on the spool while fighting a fish. The drag is nice a little touchy with regards to adjustments where 2 clicks makes a big difference in the drag setting.

    Smoooth, Dang Smooth

      Love the drag system. This reel is so smooth that after using it only twice I never think about my rod/reel setup except every once in a while I am distracted by the thought... "Dang, that's smooth."

      Great Reel very nice finish and drag.

        Good looking reel. Large arbor picks up line fast. Sturdy frame will take a beating. Protecting delicate tippet is easy with a drag this good. Multiple settings will protect 6X line nicely. Big detentes prevent the drag from rotating accidentally. Sage warranty is second to none.

        Awesome reel

          This thing is great. It is super smooth and performs as well as some of the more expensive models.

          Great reel

          Great reel

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I recently bought this reel in a 3/4 for my Reddington Classic Trout 3 weight and the reel and the rod balance prefect. This reel preforms like the expensive model,but at an unbeatable price. This is also the smoothest reel I have ever own. The drag is very easy to adjust even when you hook into a fighter. I also love the aluminum finish on it giving it a sharp look. All my friends envy this reel for its looks and performance. I plan on buying another one for my 5 weight.
