G. Loomis Steelhead Fishing Rod STR1141S GLX
SPECIFICATIONS: 2 Piece | Length: 9'6" | Line: 4lb-8lb | Lure: 1/16oz-3/8oz | Power: Ultra Light | Action: Slow | Handle: A | MPN: 10386-01
The ultimate light-line steelhead spinning rod; It has the perfect action to handle really light line and a subtle power, much like that of a fly rod, that tires the fish very quickly. It was originally designed for the Northwest technique known as boondogging, where boat anglers free-drift, down current, the same speed as the river. This allows the bait to maintain a drag-free drift beside the boat. The technique requires a lot of sensitivity and a more forgiving rod because the fish will drop the bait the minute it feels any resistance. It works well for both winter and summer-run fish.

- Rods great fun to use.
Purchased this rod to troll for trout, and enjoy mixing up my fishing styles and combinations. Its a lot of fun, and even load it up in the down rigger. The Slow action is a nice change from other rods in this line class with faster actions, and a different sensation when playing fish. Always try and take it with me when I go out now, and looking forward to hooking a really large fish on it!
- Nice rod with good action
I had been looking for a rod like this for a long time. The longer length of this rod is great for effortless casting of my sub 5g baits and helps me lift fish over the oyster covered structure. The sensitive tip lets the fish take the bait and run without even feeling it, then I can set the hook and reel it in. The great action of this rod lets me fish incredibly light line and baits to catch those really timid fish.
