Greased Line GLX two-hand rods are designed to cast long belly floating lines using a long casting stroke. Over a century ago, Jock Scott wrote of Greased Line fishing and angler A.H.E. Wood presenting a fly, broadside to a salmon to entice the salmon to strike. This traditional form of spey casting maintains a relatively fixed line length of 65 to 100 feet, allowing you to cover water without retrieving or lengthening your line on each cast; keeping you less tired and more focused on your prize. These powerful designs use the full bend of the rod, flexing all the way through the mid-section when fully loaded. These two-hand rods offer the ultimate combination of power and grace in a fly rod and provide you with perfect swing speed and fly control. For spey casts 60 to 120 feet, these Greased Line two-hand fly rod series will truly allow you to fish the water "Fine and Far Off!" All seven models are GLX and feature the finest components, including Hopkins & Holloway stripper guides with Recoil snake guides and tip-top. We use the finest cork available and the grips are fitted with special composite cork end-caps, not only enhancing the look of the rod, but increasing the handle's durability. Each aluminum reel seat is machined with our "yin-yang" cutout and has a beautiful ivory-style insert engraved with a classic spey fly graphic.
This rod has a great feel, with just enough stiffness in the butt-section to punch out long casts and it's light enough to enjoy casting all day long. At the lighter end of the spectrum as traditional rods go, this GLX beauty is a wonderful choice for smaller fish with enough power to handle an oversized surprise. For anglers with less hand strength, looking for a longer rod to help extend their casting range, this is the lightest 15-footer we make. You'll be surprised at how well it turns over a 7-8 long belly line and the distance you can achieve, even casting into a light wind.
To address the TRADITIONAL style of two-hand casting, our field experts have helped to define the ROARINGRIVER GREASED LINE RODS; nine rods ranging from a 14' #8-9 wt to a 17'#10/11 wt. Designed to cast long belly floating lines using a long casting stroke, this traditional form of spey casting maintains a fixed line of 65 to 100 feet. They allow you to cover water without retrieving or lengthening line on each cast; keeping you less tired and more focused on the prize. These powerful designs use the full bend of the rod, flexing through the mid-section when fully loaded.
