G. Loomis GLX 9' 6 wt. Fly Rod
Ten years ago, a nine-foot six-weight was the standard for western trout anglers. As rod materials have improved and rods have become lighter and stronger, the #6 has taken a back seat to the 5-weight. It's now the "in between" size for the transition from trout fishing to warmwater species. Capable of remarkably long casts, the 1086 also has the ability to make delicate presentations-especially in windy conditions where a #5 can't quite handle it. This is a good streamer rod, and it admirably casts the oversized, wind-resistant poppers, stoneflies and hoppers so popular on the larger streams of the high desert. It's also an excellent rod for ultralight saltwater applications on the flats, going after bonefish and small mangrove snapper.
