The term "Skagit Casting" was coined in the early 1990's to describe an offshoot system of spey casting being used at the time by steelheaders in the Skagit River area. It was mostly characterized by its relatively short shootinghead lines. However in its original context, the term "skagit casting" described a method of casting that exercised one particular premise to accomplish its casts - the sustained anchor concept. This works off principles of rod loading that are the opposite of spey casting. Sustained anchor casting uses the "unsticking" of a thoroughly "stuck" flyline from the river's surface as the mechanism for creating casting energy. Allowing you to change the direction of the cast and providing the primary mechanism for loading the rod, the casts that work best with this concept are the Circle Spey, Snap T. The Perry Poke and Skagit style Doublespey.

When you need to get down fast in swift, deep drifts, the RoaringRiver Dredger GLX will comfortably manage the sinking tips and weighted flies needed for Skagit style casting. The three models, ranging from the 13' 4" 7/8 wt. to the 14' #9/10, are designed to throw short to medium belly 38 to 62 foot lines using a balanced medium casting stroke, refined over time by the northwest steelhead anglers. Requiring less back cast space than traditional casting, this series of rods provide excellent casting distance.

Dredger GLX Series Rods feature Loomis's proprietary GLX graphite along with the finest rod components available today. With nickel titanium recoil guides by REC these cast as slick as they look. Exquisitely crafted Portuguese cork handles with a special composite cork end-cap and fore-grip are fitted to our exclusive offset-oval sculptured barrel real seat, each with an ivory style insert engraved with a fly graphic.

RoaringRiver Dredger GLX Series Spey Rods are designed with a moderate/fast taper and softer action to balance the medium stroke required to cast short to medium belly lines. All rods come with a beautiful triangular rod case with protective sock.


Specific Rod Details

FR1607/8-4 (GLX) - As the fall rains begin and the rivers start to swell, the 13' 4" #7/8 provides added distance and control. This model is still very light in hand and capable of comfortable 40 to 80 foot casts with all the popular mid size flies. This welter weight can deal with some wind, loading moderately deep, to mix it up with most steelhead and silver salmon. Use a short belly floating line for surface action, and loop on a short piece of sink tip as needed for a great day on the Dechutes, Bulkley or Sol Duc rivers.

FR1658/9 (GLX) - This is the "go to" rod to cover northwest steelhead under a wide range of river conditions, lines and flies. Rod action is moderate with a positive feel, allowing the angler to use a bit more authority lifting heavier sinking lines with heavily weighted flies, resetting the anchor, then delivering a long cast. Expect effortless 50 to 90 feet casts, with short belly head and running monofilament. This rod is at home on larger western rivers where continuous longer casts are needed to cover the run and battle big fish when they decide to nail your fly. It is a must rod for trips to the Dean, Babine, Kispiox rivers.

FR1689/10 (GLX) - Wind, rain, long casts? Bring it on! Where the waters run deep and swift, slinging and swinging heavy sink tips with big weighted flies at the end, this rod makes light work handling the chores. It is an excellent choice for winter steelhead, big silvers, and chinook salmon under all conditions, with casts 75 to 100 feet being the norm. This rod is designed for #9/10 short belly taper sink tip lines, with progressive moderate action. It is also a highly capable "Greased Line" rod by dropping down to a mid-belly size #8/9 line. If you're headed to the Thompson, Skeena, Skagit, or Snake and need to make big casts, for big fish, this is the rod to do the job.

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!
