On The Fly Gear
G. Loomis rods enable success by boosting anglers’ natural ability in any setting where a fly is cast. Now, the company has introduced three purpose-driven rods, each packed with design innovations and premium technologies so anglers can feel connected.
With enticing baitfish motion, multi-point articulated “swim flies” are now an essential pattern in any serious bass angler’s box. The need to develop technique-specific rods for presenting these flies is clear: Rods with quick-loading actions for accurately punching flies into tricky cover that also transmit every twitch, bump, and slide directly to the fly for precise swimming action on the strip. Rolled with our most advanced compound taper construction to date,
The NRX+ SF rods provide power, finesse, and sensitivity over the broadest range of casting distances and styles. Imbued with Dynamic Recovery Technology, NRX+ SF rods deliver smooth, rapid recovery so anglers can develop stable loops with less effort and enjoy a quick, positive feel in hand. Handcrafted in Woodland, Washington, to G. Loomis Elite Ambassador and Product Advisor Mike Schultz’s exacting specifications, ultra-versatile NRX+ SF rods are designed from the ground up to crush variables and maximize angler performance on the water.
Lift. Lob. Repeat. Downright deadly, modern euro nymphing is a beyond-proven tactic for boosting catch count. For many anglers – especially those in high-traffic fisheries with pressured fish – it’s one of the best ways to achieve maximum effectiveness. True disciples of this method require specialized tools with innovative actions and components configured to satisfy a set of unique tactical demands.
With a moderate flex pattern and generous power through the bottom half of the blank, IMX-PRO E is designed to load easily for improved casting accuracy without sacrificing the “oomph” behind the hookset. Conduit Core Technology and our GL7 Resin System combine to reduce overall weight, resulting in a lightweight, scary-sensitive blank. A custom half wells “Euro Grip”, matte finished reel seat with counter-weighted fighting butt, precise guide spacing to eliminate line sag, and pointer finger “sensitivity zone” on the blank above the grip round out the feature set for this purpose-driven euro nymphing powerhouse.
Small water. Big rewards. Now more than ever, anglers are searching for new opportunities to explore the path less traveled. Avoiding crowded waterways in search of solitude offers pause from the hectic pace of everyday life, as well as a proven way to find those happy, unpressured fish of a lifetime.
For post-work solo missions or alpine weekend wanderings, IMX-PRO C blanks blend a compact 7’9” length with a stable tip to create a moderate action that loads short and tracks true. High-modulus graphite construction fortified with Conduit Core Technology reduces weight, improves efficiency, and instills IMX-PRO C rods with a balanced swing weight and incredible durability — perfect for adventures off the beaten path. Wrapped in a shorter sock and protective tube that’s equally at home lashed to a pack or stowed under the bench seat in the truck, IMX-PRO C rods are primed for big adventure on small water.
G. Loomis fly rods are built for experienced hands. Whether presenting articulated flies to trophy bass in moving waters, finesse fishing on pressured streams, or trekking in search of small-water giants, G. Loomis now offers three exceptional rods designed to provide unparalleled performance and maximize angler success. Check them out in this video.
