G-Loomis CROSSCURRENT-Fly Fishing Rod FR10811 4-GLX
We're not sure "finesse" is the proper technique for light tarpon fishing, but it's about the best way to describe this powerhouse. When the fishing pressure puts those big silver kings off the bite, you can take this rod and go to slightly smaller flies and turn the tables in your favor. It is still extremely powerful, but casts a bit easier than it's big brother, the 12-weight and the subtle difference in rod weight can save your arm after a long day on the flats. A real good option for roosterfish as well as bull dorado!!
Saltwater flyfishing is highly dependent on bait, cover, current and tides. Where currents cross - creating rips, seams and turbulence - is the playground for saltwater anglers. It's where the baitfish find sanctuary and the game fish come to dine. It's where the depth changes on an otherwise boring flat that hides a big snook as he waits for unsuspecting prey. It's how we look at the world of saltwater fly fishing and it's what CrossCurrent is all about! It's the culmination of hours of research... on the water and in the factory, creating rods with incredible lifting power and fast tapers that help you make tight, aerodynamic loops so you can punch out unbelievably long cast after long cast, even in a stiff breeze. It's the beautiful appointments G.Loomis added to these rods to make them as enjoyable to look at as they are to fish. It's the light weight, the power and the castability that makes the CrossCurrent Series the most dynamic, most popular saltwater fly rods in the universe.
There are seven rods in the CrossCurrent GLX family, all 4-piece travel rods, featuring Recoil (nickel-titanium) guides and anodized aluminum reel seats with our "yin yang" cutouts exposing a graphite insert with G.Loomis' iconic Skeleton Fish logo. Each rod comes in a soft, protective rod sock and travel case.
