Description of the G. Loomis Trout StreamDance GLX - Rods:

Flyfishing for trout is a mystical, almost spiritual event for many anglers. We put a bit of that spirit, along with a little of the mystique into each one of our fly rods. It's not always about catching the biggest or the most or in some cases, catching any fish at all, because for some, catching fish is a bonus. The feeling of peace and serenity we experience on the water is something we all love about fishing. It's being in the mountains and the valleys, surrounded by all that is beautiful in nature. It's the experience of making a nice loop or the satisfaction of a delicate presentation that fulfills a need deep in our souls. It's the expectation and exhilaration of watching a small dry fly floating high on the water as it makes it way through the likely feeding station of a big rainbow. It truly is a "dance on water" and it's what inspired us to create the StreamDance Series. We ventured down a new path cosmetically with these rods - shifting from the stark look of technology, embracing the beauty and spirit of what we know is truly the essence of flyfishing. We added subtle colors to mirror the memories in our mind's eye of the streamside experience. We added a unique "yin-yang" design cutout in our reel seat, with a beautiful wood insert made of California Buckeye Burl and the highest grade of species cork available to complete the handle. We added the magic of Steve Rajeff's intimate understanding of blank design and GLX, along with the lightest, most durable guides in the industry to complete a true work of art we call StreamDance. We're confident you'll like what you feel!

A precision, lightweight trout rod designed for casting on small freestone creeks and tight spots where distance isn't an issue. It allows you to make pinpoint, darting casts where accuracy is everything. Thanks to GLX it's light as a feather and you can almost read a fish's mind when he's trying to get back to the safety of that rock or limb. Whether it's lake or pond, river or stream... this is what small water fishing is all about.

Small Streams & Fast Water Early season high water, causes small creeks to flow much faster than later in the year. Often at these times, weighted nymphs are the ticket to success, and it is helpful to have a small rod with enough backbone to punch out these small weighted flies. Also, for casting dries on windy days, a faster tempo casting cycle will keep the fly on the water more minutes of the day.

Small streams and medium- size spring creeks often challenge you to extend casts approaching 45 feet. Slightly longer rod lengths help make casting tasks and line control mends easier. Light lines in sizes # 3 and # 4 are the norm when the utmost in accuracy and presentation is needed, using flies from #14 down to #24, with 5x to 8x tippets.

When the wind picks up, take command on larger spring creeks with tighter loops, increased control, and more accurate casts. The slightly more powerful designs within the High Line Speed range deliver it all in 8 and 9-foot lengths with #4 and #5 lines, which are increasingly becoming the most dominant player in this environment.

Standing in the relative openness of large spring creeks or slow moving bodies of water exposes you to spooking fish. Longer range, soft presentation casts become a must under these conditions. Delicacy and accuracy are still at a premium, but there needs to be enough power to turn over longer leaders with a wide range of fly sizes. These same conditions are also found in early morning, fishing on ponds with trout sipping emergers.

Big dries, weighted flies, streamers, multi flies, long leaders, strike indicators, sink tips, split shot, are all buggers to cast, even without much wind. Add long casts from float tubes and that's why you need some extra horsepower. And should all the stars and mayflies align, and the conditions get calm, you'll want fine diameter tips that can still protect light tippets and offer trout fishing versatility.

4wt SD HLS GLX
Rating: 5 of 5 [5 of 5]
Reviewed by: Alex on 07/16/2008
Experience Level: Pro - Ownership: 1 - 4 Months
Pros: I have the 9ft 4wt HLS it is a great all around trout rod make dry flies land softly on the surface and also cast the beadhead stone flies with a trailer fly with little effort. when you make a cast it just feels good thats all I am trying to say.
Cons: this rod has a narrow grip so if you can plam a full size basketball the grip might bother you a little bit.
AWESOME!

Pros: My opinion of the GLX Streamdance is , that it is AWESOME! I learned to fly-fish on a St. Croix a few years ago. I heard stories about G.Loomis Rods, but never fished with one. I bought my GLX Streamdance High Line Speed 6wt, last summer. The Streamdance is a Beautiful rod, and I would recomend it to anyone. Especially anyone who Fly-Fishes!!! The Streamdance, will lay your bug down the water just as smooth as glass. The Streamdance will also launch your fly to unbelievable distances effortlessly. I highly recomend,(G.Loomis Streamdance GLX)
Cons: None
