  4. G. Loomis IMX-Pro Creek Fly Rod Review

    G. Loomis IMX-Pro Creek Fly Rod Review
    As larger rivers continue to suffer from overcrowding, more anglers are seeking refuge by opting to explore smaller water. While the fish are generally eager to rise to a well-presented dry fly, creek fishing offers unique challenges.
