G. Loomis NativeRun GLX Fly and Spey Rods

$695.00 - $725.00
It's the preparation, the pursuit, the prize. Whether you're throwing skating dries on the North Umpqua in August, fighting a coastal headwind on the Smith, or attempting to reach down deep in the swift winter current of the Bogachiel, NativeRun steelhead and salmon fly rods cast the cast, drift the drift, and fight the fights as no other rods before.

G. Loomis NativeRun GLX Fly Rods are beautiful rods, with models from the easy casting #6 to a powerful #9. All designed for you to generate line speed, more aerodynamic loops and deftly accurate casts, with less effort than ever before. Now, hitting those distant holding slots and easily mending a full line will no longer be an occasional occurrence, but will happen time after time. The NativeRun rods, where the real prize may just very well be the pursuit.

NativeRun GLX Fly Rods are crafted with the proprietary GLX graphite along with the finest componentry available today. They have custom reel seats featuring a single fastener with raised grips, making it easy to tighten, and loosen, with gloves in cold weather. With nickel titanium RECOIL guides by REC and the finest Portuguese cork available, these rods are as beautiful as the river you'll be using them in.

FR1206-4 - This rod has half pounder and summer steelhead in its soul. The tip is powerful enough to punch through wind with long belly taper lines, making stunning long casts for such a light outfit. The mending advantage becomes very apparent over shorter #6 rods. A more potent rod by comparison with the StreamDance 10' #6. Should you want to do some float tube fishing, it doubles as a leech and wooly bugger casting machine.

FR1147-4 - This is a fantastic rod for big trout or small river steelhead. Casters hoping to extend their distance a bit or improve their mending control will find this 9 1/2-footer very helpful. Four-piece GLX construction makes it a super light, super smooth, super convenient package for tackling all the toughest light line conditions.

FR1207-4 - A fast action rod, extremely lightweight, and fantastic with floating lines for steelhead. Due to the light weight, float tube anglers can easily cast it with sinking lines and cover longer cast with ease. Atlantic salmon anglers enjoy this model for grilse fishing and catching bigger fish to 20lb.

FR1088-4 - An extremely versatile, medium-stiff outfit suited to larger flies and floating or sinking lines. It provides the power needed to cast the most demanding flies for any situation.

FR1148-4 - An exceptional steelhead and light all-purpose salmon rod for large river where long casts and positive line control equal success. The 9 1/2" length makes longer casting a little easier and improves mending control.

FR1208-4 - Ten feet gives you all the extra distance you'll need to cover just about any water and the lightweight GLX design makes it almost effortless to fish full lines and shooting head alike. This could very well be the all time best steelhead one-hand rod on the planet.

FR1209-4 - This rod is designed to handle big flies, size 2 and above, and is capable of pushing those large flies more than reasonable distances. It's also good for weighted flies and heavily weighted sinking fly lines. And if you're lucky enough to be fishing with Frank Moore on the North Umpqua, you may hear him mention it's the best all around large rod. Period.

About Me:
Avid Fisher
I fished over 100 days on the Miramichi this summer and landed 61 atlantic salmon in all conditions. The native run is the best rod I have owned in 58 years of fishing. The tube rod case is too narrow and is very hard to put my rod into. My last loomis 4pc had a rectangular case and worked fine.

Pros: Accurate Casting, Flexible, Sensitive, Durable, Good Tip Action

Cons: Hard To Transport

Best Uses: Fly Fishing
