Specific Rod DetailsBack to top

FR1325-4 Switch GLX - Designed to fish either single-hand or spey style, this 5-weight is really sweet when fishing small flies and using up to 350-grain Skagit lines, with floating or sink tips. It casts effortlessly single-hand, but it makes a wonderful light-duty two-hand spey rod. It gives you excellent distance and line control for mending and managing long leaders. If you're looking for a real challenge, try this little beauty for summer-run steelhead when the water is low and clear. It doubles nicely for steelhead and redsides, fishing with small nymphs and strike indicators on the Deschutes and is an excellent choice for those famous "half pounders" on the Rogue or Klamath rivers.

FR1327-4 Switch GLX - This is probably the best choice for fishing a variety of fly sizes, whether fishing floating lines or sink-tips. You can cast up to a 450-grain Skagit line plus floating or sinking tip with this rod. Most anglers will find it easy to cast single-handed. It's a really nice big water, big trout rod, but is an exceptional small river steelhead rod. It casts well in light wind and gives you excellent mending qualities. When the steelhead get spooky and you need to go to lighter, longer leaders, this is the rod you'll want in your hands. It's a good choice for coneheads and other heavily weighted flies. Loop on a floating tip and cast a mouse or skater with ease.

FR1328-4 Switch GLX - This 8-weight "switch" is best for fishing heavily weighted flies two-hand style; especially the ones made with bulky, water absorbing materials. Only the stronger single-hand casters are able to manage this rod for any length of time. It casts well in high wind, similar to what anglers encounter in Tierra Del Fuego. Whether you're fishing for big steelhead or Atlantic salmon, searun browns or silver salmon, this rod will surprise you. GLX makes it very powerful, but more importantly it makes it extremely light. You can fish all day with minimal fatigue and know that when the big bite happens you've got the right rod!

FR1607/8-4 RR Dredger GLX - This is an extremely light rod for summer steelhead and small salmon. It handles a 450 to 475 grain Skagit line, plus the sink-tip. It casts well in light winds with small to medium weighted flies. You'll appreciate how effortlessly this rod covers the water from 50-90 feet. If the conditions are right you can loop on a floating tip and fish dry flies effectively with this rod.

FR1658/9-4 RR Dredger GLX - When it comes to fishing the rivers of the Northwest, Alaska and British Columbia for big steelhead, this is our go-to rod. Anglers will be able to manage a variety of flies, lines and river conditions, no matter what the weather dishes out. It has a moderate, yet powerful taper allowing you to set your anchor and make long, precise casts to cover water super efficiently. It has enough reserve power to handle 500-550 grain Skagit lines, plus the sink-tip and big flies. If you're looking for the best all around Skagit rod, this is it!

FR1689/10-4 RR Dredger GLX - This rod is designed to fish for big steelhead, silvers and chinook salmon. When rivers run swift and deep, this rod is truly in it's element, making light work of handling 600-650 grain Skagit lines plus the heavy sink-tips and big weighted flies. Wind, rain long casts? Not your problem any more! When fishing the likes of the Thompson, the Skagit or the Skeena this is the rod you want. It will even make a nice alternative for traditional spey casting by just dropping down to a mid-belly 8/9 line. GLX makes it light and unbelievably powerful.

FR1688/9-4 RR Greased Line GLX - Here's a traditional spey rod that's slightly shorter, but still allows you to cover a lot of water. At 14-feet, the optimal casting range is a moderate 65 to 85-feet. It's a delightful rod for catching steelhead and all but the largest salmon. The moderate action creates smooth D-loops while still generating a lot of power. A great choice for fishing from a canoe like they do on the Miramichi or rivers of the Gaspey Peninsula.

FR1807/8-4 RR Greased Line GLX - This rod has a great feel, with just enough stiffness in the butt-section to punch out long casts and it's light enough to enjoy casting all day long. At the lighter end of the spectrum as traditional rods go, this GLX beauty is a wonderful choice for smaller fish with enough power to handle an oversized surprise. For anglers with less hand strength, looking for a longer rod to help extend their casting range, this is the lightest 15-footer we make. You'll be surprised at how well it turns over a 7-8 long belly line and the distance you can achieve, even casting into a light wind.

FR1808/9-4 RR Greased Line GLX - This is the next step up in our 8/9 range of traditional spey rods. The extra foot in length helps you make longer casts and you'll find it also provides better penetration into the wind. It fishes optimally with long belly floating lines, but will handle short to mid-belly sink tips well. If you want to fish shorter bellied lines, increase your line rating by one size. This a versatile rod for most of the salmon species and large steelhead, especially on big the rivers of the Northwest and British Columbia.

FR1809/10-4 RR Greased Line GLX - When you're fishing big water and large flies you need a rod with enough power to handle not only a lot of line, but wind as well. This powerful 15-footer will handle long belly floating lines and wet lines under the most challenging conditions. Thanks to our "progressive power taper" design it has a slightly faster action, creating plenty of power so you can extend your casting range. If you have enough room and the opportunity presents itself to make an overhead cast, the tip will handle the load without tailing the loop. A true powerhouse!

FR18010/11-4 RR Greased Line GLX - Here's a unique spey rod that not only gives the angler long, powerful casts, but is capable of handling sinking lines as well as floating lines. There aren't a lot of 15-footers that can manage a 10/11 long belly floating line like this one and still maintain positive line and swing control. It's an excellent choice for casting big tube flies in swift, deep runs and will handle big fish, no problem! Wind is not an issue with this powerhouse.

Customer Reviews
Steely Dan
Very pleased with loomis as I have been for almost 20 years    (from prior model)
Best Uses: Steelhead and salmon.
Comments: Super light and sensitive. Casts like a dream. Was a little unpleased with the guides at first. Felt the first few should be fuji. Then I read into it and realized they are even better. No hook keeper. Come on G. Loomis you see plenty of people want it. Do it!
