G. Loomis RoaringRiver Greased Line GLX Two-Hand


G. Loomis Fly Rods

Jock Scott over a century ago wrote of Greased Line fishing as performed by A.H.E. Wood to present a fly broadside to Salmon to entice the salmon to strike. This TRADITIONAL form of spey casting maintains a relatively fixed line length of 65-100 feet allowing you to cover water without retrieving or lengthening 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 through the mid-section when fully loaded. The ROARINGRIVER GREASED LINE SERIES of two-hand rods offer the ultimate combination of power and grace in a rod and provide you perfect swing speed and fly control. For spey casts from 50 to 150' the RoaringRiver Greased Line two-hand rod series will truly allow you to fish the water "Fine and Far off."

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.
