G. Loomis IMX Steelhead Float Rods

The new G. Loomis IMX Steelhead Float Rods, or “STFR” for short, is a series of freshwater steelhead fishing rods designed for the float fishing technique used in rivers and streams. G. Loomis engineered these rods using the latest in fishing rod technology resulting in a finished product that was lighter, more sensitive and stronger than their IMX predecessors. Comprised of five models - 2 casting and 3 spinning (all 2 piece rods), G. Loomis IMX Steelhead Float Rods offer the ideal actions and lengths desired by anglers for this unique technique. Float fishing for steelhead is a very effective technique, especially when there are a lot of snags in the water or the fish are suspended. It’s kind of like fishing for bluegill with a bobber and red worms, but the current is a lot swifter, the fish a lot bigger and the reward a lot greater. Float fishing requires a long, light, responsive rod so you can mend your line to maintain a drag-free drift and cover as much water as you can, plus when you lift the tip to set the hook, you can move a lot of line which is especially important when the floats are set deep or you’re at the end of a long, extended drift. The extra length also helps protect the line, especially considering the size of the fish you’re after and the crazy way they fight when hooked. The advantage you’ll experience with the our IMX float rods is technical and as well as aesthetic. Extra-long rear grips provide added leverage and fish-fighting control. It’s fun and effective way to catch one of world’s great game-fish!! Available in both spinning and casting configurations!

The release of the new 2014 G. Loomis IMX Rods offers anglers a whole new level of sensitivity and strength in rods that are up to 15% lighter than the original IMX series. With surprising power to weight ratios, the Float series of steelhead rods is exactly what you need to effectively fish this unique technique. The G. Loomis IMX Steelhead Float Rod Series includes five models - two casting and three spinning. Specs can be found below.

G. Loomis IMX Steelhead Float Rods

IMX 1262-2C STFR

A 10' 6" float rod designed for those anglers that prefer casting reels over spinning reels while fishing small to medium-sized rivers where you don't need to make long casts or super-long drifts. It provides excellent line and float control and because it's a little shorter, allows you to react quickly and make positive hooksets. It will handle lighter jigs and small, less obtrusive floats to fish low water conditions where the fish can get spooky. Thanks to IMX technology it is light, responsive and extremely sensitive. A must-have rod for any float fishing aficionado.

IMX 1363-2C STFR

Float fishing on big rivers requires a long, more powerful rod. Not only to cover the water, but to keep the line clear of radical mid-river currents and soft spots. At 11' 4", this spinning rod is designed to help you extend drifts, hit the pocket water on the far bank and maintain a drag-free presentation. It will handle slightly larger jigs or bait rigs and can fish up to 12-pound test monofilament for winter and fall fishing. It will handle large steelhead and the smaller salmon species. It balances nicely with a comfortable swing-weight thanks to our proprietary IMX rod technology. You'll notice the difference at the end of a long day on the water... there'll be more smiles and more fish on the bank.

IMX 1262-2S STFR

A more powerful float rod. You can still cover a lot of water and there's more enough power to set the hook at long-range. Our proprietary IMX technology makes it lighter than you'd expect for a 10' 6" rod with sensitivity to match! It offers a lot of flexibility. You can drift any of the popular float rigs... jigs, shrimp, eggs or artificial bait rigs. Anglers in the upper Midwest will love this rod for fishing the mouths of tributary streams along the shoreline of the Great Lakes. One really versatile spinning rod!

IMX 1363-2S STFR

Float fishing on big rivers requires a long, more powerful rod. Not only to cover the water, but to keep the line clear of radical mid-river currents and soft spots. At 11' 4", this rod is designed in casting configuration as an option for those that just don't want to use a spinning reel. It's made to help you extend drifts, hit the pocket water on the far bank and maintain a drag-free presentation. It will handle slightly larger jigs or bait rigs and can fish up to 12-pound test monofilament for winter and fall fish. It will handle large steelhead and the smaller salmon species. It balances nicely with a comfortable swing-weight thanks to our proprietary IMX rod technology. You'll notice the difference at the end of a long day on the water... there'll be more smiles and more fish on the bank.
