G. Loomis Steelhead & Salmon Rods - Versaspey Two Hand

We used our “fiber-blend” technology and moderately priced components to create a new range of two-hand fly rods for salmon and steelhead that we call VersaSpey... so-named because of their versatility. Our goal was to create a high performance/high value selection of two-hand fly rods that, just by changing the fly line, allows you to perform all the popular casting styles, depending on what line you choose. The good news is that they turned out fantastic... far better than our expectations! They have dual fly line-ratings as well as the physical weight-ratings in grains to help you select the right balance. For floating lines with short, mid- and long-belly integrated lines, use the dual weight line listed for the rod. When using Scandinavian and Skagit shooting lines (sink-tips not included) use the grain-weight for reference. There are five models ranging in length from 12½’ to 13½’. They are all well suited for short/compact shooting heads, yet are capable of handling full, long belly fly lines. These rods have a beautiful reddish bronze finish, dark bronze aluminum reel seats, sporting the skeleton fish logo along with Hopkins & Holloway stripper guides and chromed snake guides. Each rod comes in a soft, protective rod sock and travel case.

A light-duty two-hand rod for big trout and small steelhead like those aggressive little "half-pounders" on Oregon's Rogue River and Northern California's Klamath River. Designed to fish light lines on smaller rivers where the water is clear and the fish get spooky. It gives you excellent short-range line control for mending and it handles long leaders and small to medium flies well. It is a great option for fishing small coastal streams and the brush-lined rivers of the Great Lakes region.

This 13-footer is an excellent choice for fishing small salmon and summer-run steelhead, especially where you need a little more distance. Where this rod really shines is on the big western rivers like Oregon's Deschutes. It's a great rod because it's so "versatile" and can cover any fishing conditions you may encounter during the day. It fishes medium-sized flies and has an extremely light feel and swing weight.
