Description of the G. Loomis RoaringRiver Greased GLX Two-Hand - Rods:

Greased Line GLX two-hand rods are designed to cast long belly floating lines using a long casting stroke. Over a century ago, Jock Scott wrote of Greased Line fishing and angler A.H.E. Wood presenting a fly, broadside to a salmon to entice the salmon to strike. This traditional form of spey casting maintains a relatively fixed line length of 65 to 100 feet, allowing you to cover water without retrieving or lengthening your line on each cast; keeping you less tired and more focused on your prize. These powerful designs use the full bend of the rod, flexing all the way through the mid-section when fully loaded. These two-hand rods offer the ultimate combination of power and grace in a fly rod and provide you with perfect swing speed and fly control. For spey casts 60 to 120 feet, these Greased Line two-hand fly rod series will truly allow you to fish the water "Fine and Far Off!" All seven models are GLX and feature the finest components, including Hopkins & Holloway stripper guides with Recoil snake guides and tip-top. We use the finest cork available and the grips are fitted with special composite cork end-caps, not only enhancing the look of the rod, but increasing the handle's durability. Each aluminum reel seat is machined with our "yin-yang" cutout and has a beautiful ivory-style insert engraved with a classic spey fly graphic.

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.

To address the TRADITIONAL style of two-hand casting, our field experts have helped to define the ROARINGRIVER GREASED LINE RODS; nine rods ranging from a 14' #8-9 wt to a 17'#10/11 wt. Designed to cast long belly floating lines using a long casting stroke, this traditional form of spey casting maintains a fixed line of 65 to 100 feet. They allow you to cover water without retrieving or lengthening line on each cast; keeping you less tired and more focused on the prize. These powerful designs use the full bend of the rod, flexing through the mid-section when fully loaded.

GREASED LINE GLX - The Greased Line GLX is crafted with our proprietary GLX grapite along with the finest for components available today. Featuring Hopkins and Halloway guides and exquisitely crafted Portuguese cork handles, fitted with a special composite core end-cap and fore-grip. Our exclusive offset-oval sculptured barrel reel seat, each with an ivory style insert engraved with a fly graphic.

GREASED LINE DEVERON - A special graphite blend needed for the optimum actions to cast long belly lines using methods as traditional as the Deveron River itself. Featuring premium Hopkins and Holloway components and beautiful Portuguese cork handles.

This is a dry fly long liner delight. It has great feel as it loads to for the D loop, with just enough butt stiffness to propel your offering 90 feet plus. At the light end of Greased Line style, this GLX rod is wonderful for smaller fish with enough power to handle a big one should it find your fly. For casters without lots of hand strength, looking for a longer rod to help get extra distance, this rod is the lightest weight 15 foot rod available. Experts may be surprised how well a #7/8 long belly line turns over and stretches for distance, even into light wind. Tremendous control of the drift is had with its 15 foot length. If you're seeking a "Far and Fine" Greased Line rod, look no further.

Traditional style spey casters have long enjoyed covering water with floating lines, making long casts without retrieving after each cast. this 14 foot #8/9 is a medium/light rod within this category. It has a comfort casting zone of 65 to 85 feet, and is light enough to make playing fish in the 10lb. range a joy. The rod action is moderate, and powerful. Anglers fishing the Gaspey Peninsula in Quebec rivers from a canoe, may find this model just the answer to cast to both sides with minimal effort. It handles casting all but the largest flies with comfort.

A step up from the #7/8, the 15'0" # 8/9 provides greater wind penetration, and added distance with flies into the small /0's. With moderate progressive taper and moderate butt end power, it'll lift enough line to help form long D loops, and make casts to 90 feet consistently. Optimal using long belly floating lines, it handles short/mid belly sink tips with comfort. When using shorter bellies, increase line size by one size. This is a versatile rod for most salmonids excluding the biggest representatives in very fast water.

The rod power needed to hurl a vast amount of long belly #9/10 line is like a study in torque vs horsepower of your favorite brand of V-12 engine. Power and grace exemplify the qualities of this size rod. This model can cast all fly sizes with long belly floating and sinking lines. It still has a moderate progressive taper to give you feel and a fine sense of timing the D loop. Should the opportunity present itself to overhead cast, the rod will lay it out without tailing the loop. For bigger water conditions this is the 15 foot power tool for the job.

For sheer casting pleasure, this is one of the best rods an angler can swing.

Not many 15 foot rods can carry a long belly # 10/11 at distance, with control and positive nature as this one. Not many rods do it with soul and feeling. Not many rods handle sinking lines as well as floating. This rod says yes to it all. the progressive moderate taper is ideal for fishing deep and fast water, with heavy brass tube flies and hooking into big fish. No matter the wind, this rod takes on all challengers.

So you want to fish another beat, but your gillie is off having a dram somewhere? No problem, stay where you are, just string up your 17 foot #10/11 GLX Greased Line rod, and make a cast from there.17 foot, GLX and a #10/11, it speaks for itself. It can cast into the backing at will, if you like. Change of direction is effortless, as you can pick a tremendous length. Too big? Not necessarily, as the big rod makes distance so effortless it offsets the need to bash lesser rods, and so you may find you are less fatigued after a session. It loads down below mid point of rod at 90 feet, to provide the caster with a comfortable feel, and sense of control. This is only the starting point for this rod. Do not be surprised if you wish your line had a bit more length. For big rivers, big fish, big flies and a grand time, try a 17' GLX.
