G. Loomis Max Czech Nymph GLX Fly Rod

G. Loomis Max Czech Nymph GLX Fly Rod  at Front Range Anglers

A unique fly rod series designed for a special style of tournament stream angling in Europe where speed and line control are paramount to success. These are extremely fast, 10-foot, 4-piece rods with light, sensitive tips to help anglers make short, accurate drifts with weighted nymphs. The technique requires very little in the way of traditional casting. Anglers actually flick weighted nymphs upstream of the target area and then, using the extra rod length, and long, light leaders, guide the flies along the bottom, almost pulling the rig downstream instead of using the standard "dead-drift" technique. The extra-fast taper in these rods provides a quick hook-set, so anglers can react before the fish spits the fly. The 3-weight is for smaller fish and protecting very light tippets. The 4-weight is for slightly heavier tippets and larger fish. The technique is quickly gaining a following in the U.S. as anglers discover new ways to fool pressure-sensitive trout.



FRA's Review of the MAX Czech GLX Fly Rod:
"Czech nymphing relies upon feel, the MAX Czech GLX  is extra stiff to help transfer any vibrations from the rod into your hand.  This is the loomis way of allowing the anglers to stay connected with their flies.  A super stiff rod with a soft tip helps to protect light tippet wile allowing anglers to present light flies on long leaders.  A different kind of rod for a different style of fishing."   ~FRA
