The G. Loomis E6X Steelhead Drift Rods is a series of fishing rods designed specifically for the drift technique used when fishing rivers and streams in search of big steelhead. Consisting of 16 models in all, 7 casting and 9 spinning, the E6X Steelhead Drift Series provides anglers with the right choice for their specific needs with models covering the entire spectrum of actions, powers and lengths. Steelhead use holding water to rest as they leave the ocean or the Great Lakes and migrate up coastal streams and inland tributaries to spawn. It's usually where less effort is needed to rest after a long journey up river. That's why you need a long rod to drift baits for these big, oversized, searun rainbows. The less current drag on your line, the more feel and control you will enjoy. When you need to fish a seam in the middle of the river you need accuracy. When you get the chance to fish all day long, you want a rod thats well balanced and as light as possible. When the normal bite is so light its hard to tell it from the rocks, you need sensitivity and when that 20-pounder heads back toward the ocean you need plenty of power. That's what G.Loomis E6X Steelhead Drift Rods are all about and they make you a better angler!!
We offer the G. Loomis E6X Steelhead Drift Rods in 16 models - 7 casting and 9 spinning. See the chart below for rod specs.
