G.Loomis NRX Trout
We’ve had nothing but rain here in the Northwest, rivers are on the rise, and the fishing is off. What better time to stock up and check out some gear. There’s a lot of new product out. Fishpond has redone their lineup, lots of new Scientific Anglers Product, Korkers and some fantastic NuCast reels. It’s also time to check out some rods. I’m not one who is inclined to be Guinea pig on the latest and greatest rod right off the bat. I like to get lots of feedback before I make a significant investment.
To that end, one of the rods I really like is the G.Loomis NRX Trout. Many times in trout fishing, the situation calls for delicate casts using extremely light leaders. The water is gin clear, the flows are low, and the fish are spooky. Enter in the NRX Trout. This is a very smooth casting rod with a soft taper. The rod gives you fantastic accuracy and can handle 7X leader with a #22 adams or a 4X leader with a hopper…..and everything in between.
The rod loads very well at all distances. This is a great dry fly rod. It will also perform well with a hopper dropper set up too. The NRX utilizes a stiffer, lighter and higher density carbon compounded with Nano Silica resin systems. . The rods are lighter, yet more durable, extremely sensitive, and yet stiffer. This is a case where technology can help you become a better caster.
While I have heard a lot of feedback from streamer fisherman, I would not recommend for a streamer rod. You’d want something more stout for that.
The NRX Trout is simply a solid rod for trout fishing. I'm not the sharpest tool in the tool shed, but maybe that why the called it NRX Trout.
