G-Loomis PRO 4X 1089/10-4 LHP FR Fly Fishing Rod
A unique approach in rod design to help fly fishers handle big, bulky, air-resistant flies and the wire leaders needed to keep those toothy critters from cutting through your leader. This particular rod is for areas where cover is sparse and smaller fish. A good choice for medium-sized poppers, strip leeches and streamers for pike, small muskie, bass and schoolie-sized stripers. It has the power to give you extra distance and handle the new, more aggressive short max fly lines up to 425 grains.
A new breed of specialty "two-hand" power fly rods designed for big pike and muskie. These unique new fly rods are the standard 9', 4-piece style, but feature a special "long handle - switch grip", allowing you to cast using two hands or single-handed, much like salmon & steelhead switch rods - only these rods aren't 10-12-feet long. It's an unusual combination, but it will help you manage the more aggressive fly lines needed to cast heavy leaders with wire tippets. Not only does the longer handle provide more power for longer casts, but it also gives you a lot more leverage for fighting big fish. Anglers have discovered them to be exceptional for the likes of striped bass in both surf and tail-waters, plus numerous saltwater species like snook, cobia, dorado and tarpon. Bass fly rodders will appreciate this set up for big bass in heavy cover as will those traveling anglers in pursuit of peacock bass and many other exotic species.
