G. Loomis Trout Rods - Stream Dance GLX

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!

Recognized universally as the best all around trout fly rod, the 9-foot for #5 does it all. Dry flies, nymphs, streamers, it doesn't matter - especially with the line-speed this GLX beauty generates. It has our "progressive power taper" which allows you to make short casts as efficiently and smoothly as long ones and its ability to cast in windy conditions with larger flies is a great reason why this is our most popular trout fly rod.

As both the trout and the water get bigger, you need a little more oomph! That's where this hi-speed 6-weight really shines.

It's absolutely the right rod for windy conditions and long casts... from Tierra del Fuego to Bristol Bay.

If you enjoy float-tubing or wading the shoreline on big western impoundments this is the rod we'd recommend. The extra length gives you much better casting distance and you can lift a lot of line off the water to initiate quick target acquisition. It's a great alternative for small summer steelhead when the water is low and clear. If you make big line mends and find yourself extending drifts, even into your backing, this is the rod you want.
