NRX Switch 12’ #6 weight
G.Loomis rod designer Steve Rajeff put his heart and soul into this one. Built specifically for Columbia Basin one salt summer steelhead, the incredibly light 12’ #6 NRX screams for swinging wets and skaters with a Scandi head on rivers like the Grande Ronde and the Deschutes. Rigged with a Skagit, expect it to cast 10’ of T-10 and a lightly weighted fly. Great Lakes steelheaders will love this rod for both traditional swing fishing as well as dead drift techniques on small to medium sized rivers. It also doubles as a killer big trout Spey for swinging large streamers from Alaska to Montana.
NRX Spey 14’ #6/7 weight
If longer lines and surface presentations are your game, the G.Loomis NRX 14’ 6/7 delivers big despite its light line rating. Perfect for summer steelhead rivers where distance matters. One of our favorites on Rivers like the Rogue, the Umpqua and the Deschutes.
NRX Spey 13’ #7/8 weight
The G.Loomis NRX 13’ 7/8 may be one of the best all-around Spey rods ever built. It’s nimble enough to fish dry lines with small classic wets for summer steelhead or Atlantics yet has enough in the tank to handle big sink-tips and heavy flies for winter steelhead. Great Lakes’ Steelheaders will appreciate this rod for both wade fishing and swinging out of the boat. If you’re headed to Alaska to fish super-sized sculpins for giant rainbows, look no further.
NRX Spey 13’ #8/9 Weight
Truly large steelhead demand a rod that can turn a fish in heavy current. The G.Loomis 13’ 8/9 is the weapon of choice for winter steelhead and the Canadian summer run rivers. While this stick is incredibly powerful and can handle your heaviest sink-tips and biggest intruders, it’s unbelievably light in hand. Consequently, it also makes for a decent skater rod on rivers like the Dean, Babine and Kispiox. Steelheaders on the “Third Coast” will appreciate this rod for throwing big sculpins on heavy sink-tips and intermediate Skagit heads on rivers like the Big Manistee and Muskegon.
NRX Spey 14’ #8/9 Weight
The G.Loomis 14’ #8/9 commands even the largest steelhead rivers. Legendary rod designer Steve Rajeff had the Clearwater & Thompson in mind when he built this one. Although it handles longer dry lines for summer fishing with ease, rigged with a Skagit head it’s a perfect big water winter steelhead rod, especially when longer sink-tips and large flies are required to get the big eat.
NRX Spey 12’6 #9/10 weight
When you chase truly large king salmon you better have the right tool for the job. Casting big flies on heavy tips -typically on large coastal rivers where the wind can howl so hard it’s difficult to stand up. However, fishing for these incredible creatures is only half the battle… Once you connect, expect a new level of fly fishing chaos. The G.Loomis NRX 12’6 #9/10 is without question the best chinook rod ever conceived. The shorter length gives you better leverage and lifting power when you need it. Plus, it’s powerful enough to get the job done yet its light enough to comfortably fish all day. -Also an ideal Scandi rod for large Atlantic salmon.
NRX Spey 14’ #9/10 weight
The G.Loomis NRX 14’ #9/10 is the tool of choice for big salmon and steelhead rivers. Ideal for dry line fishing on wide-open summer steelhead rivers where the longest cast wins. Also a great choice for chasing super-tanker kings and Atlantics with Skagit heads or full-sink Scandi heads.
NRX Spey 15’ #10/11
Few places demand a rod as powerful as the NRX 15’ #10/11. Yet, of the select rivers that see Atlantics in the 40-50 pound range, there is no better stick. Ideal for both surface and subsurface presentations where long range casts are a must.
