G-Loomis NRX Fly Fishing Rod 1088-4 FLY BLUE
The standard by which all light-duty saltwater fly rods and heavy-duty freshwater rods are measured will soon be changing. This smooth casting 8-weight will quickly become our #1 9-foot fly rod for fishing the flats as well as steelhead. It has the versatility and quickness of a much lighter rod but with more power than you can imagine. Tight loops and great range in such a lightweight package makes this our top choice for bonefish, permit, snook, stripers, blues, salmon, steelhead, pike and any number of big fish. They just don’t make a better rod than this – anywhere.
Just when you thought fly rods couldn't get any lighter or more dynamic, along comes a rod that surpasses anything ever made. Thanks to a proprietary, high-tech, nano-silica resin system and the genius of rod designer, Steve Rajeff, these NRX saltwater fly rods are the ultimate in extreme performance. They have an unbelievable "strength-to-weight" ratio and can handle everything from bonefish to small tuna. Tarpon anglers, especially those traveling to far off places, really appreciate the 4-piece construction. Wind is not problem given the fast tapers and stiff design that create incredibly tight loops for long, accurate casts, even in the wind. Ranging from a sneaky powerful 7-weight, all the way up to the tarpon lover's 12-weight, there isn't a fish on the flats or in the tidewater you can't handle. Small tuna, big Cobia, even striped and white marlin are no match for the strength and power of NRX. It's everything you want in a saltwater fly rod and more!
