For the angler who loves exploration as much as catching fish, G. Loomis’ IMX-PRO Creek Rod is the ultimate choice. G. Loomis built their IMX-PRO Creek Rods for those small waterways that just might hold the fish of a lifetime--you know, those ones that require a hike in and hours spent investigating maps. Loomis made their IMX-PRO C Rods with a moderate action in line weights 2-4, all of which are 7’9” to make for short loading and easy casting when in a tight squeeze. Handcrafted in Woodland, Washington, the IMX-PRO Creek Fly Rods are the ideal tool whenever your day requires crawling through rhododendron, bow and arrow casting, and boulder hopping. From feisty brookies picking off dry flies to deep-living carnivorous brown trout that need a large Wooly Bugger, this rod is the perfect tool for it all.
Conduit Core Technology - G. Loomis crafts their IMX-PRO Creek Fly Rods with a lightweight feel and a design that’s compact enough for tight streams while still giving just enough power to tackle the real brutes of these tiny waterways. In starting things off with their Conduit Core Technology, G. Loomis removes excess wraps of graphite and replaces them with a proprietary material that’s equally as strong yet considerably more lightweight. Conduit Core Technology also requires less energy to move the rod, which increases overall efficiency. The fun doesn’t end there either, as Loomis builds this rod with their Multi-Taper Design. The Multi-Taper Design is essentially a series of “micro tapers” within the build of the rod that adds a little extra material to potential break points and a little less material everywhere else--think of it as the perfect balance between reliable strength and a light feel. Whether you’re sinking nymphs into plunge pools or drifting an Elk Hair Caddis, this blank allows you to do it all with ease.
To increase stealth when in these small stream settings with spooky trout, G. Loomis makes this rod with a black color and accents it with black thread wraps.
Chrome Stripper Guides - To further maintain that lightweight feel and casting performance, G. Loomis outfits the blank with Chrome Stripper Guides. This choice in guides makes for an ultralight feel as well as solid and consistent line speed that makes casting a breeze.
Chrome Single-Foot Guides - A great choice to further cut weight and provide easy line shooting, G. Loomis outfits their IMX-PRO C rods with Chrome Single-Foot Guides.
Custom Matte Aluminum Reel Seat - A reel seat that both provides balance and a super lightweight feel, G. Loomis equips their IMX-PRO Creek Rods with a dual-uplocking custom Matte Aluminum Reel Seat. This reel seat provides a lightweight feel while resisting corrosion and remaining durable--this makes it an excellent choice for navigating those small blue lines that can often be so tough on your gear. G. Loomis also integrates a weighted fighting butt so that you can drive the power home should you get into one of those true small stream giants.
Tube and Cloth Bag - Tethering it onto your backpack for a week spent in the woods or just tossing it under the passenger seat of your car, no matter where you’re taking the IMX-PRO Creek Fly Rod, it’s sure to be safe with G. Loomis’ Tube and Cloth Rod Bag.
