Glad to see some chat about 6wts. I have had a G.Loomis IMX 9'6" for over 25 years. Been using it for Small-mouth and on large lakes when I know the big trout are out playing. Great choice for...

Re: It's Here: 1st Tenkara Rod

You will really enjoy this rod. Been using mine over a year and caught a lot of crappie and 'gills on it. I use the 3.5 level line and 6x tippets for most of my fishing on this rod. Just got the...

Re: Wristwatches What You Wear And Why

I'm a watch junkie, especially vintage jobs! bad, because I could be buying new rods and reels. My oldest is a '29 Bulova and goes from there to a Citizen Eco. But when I fish I wear a $50.00 Casio...

Re: Fido

I am not much of a dog person and think that owners of animals should be able to keep them under control. I would have been upset, as you where, and justified, by having a dog jump on me and then...

Re: 9'6"?

I have used a G.Loomis IMX 9'6" 6wt for 25 years and love this rod. The extra length in a tube when or where ever you need it is handy. I have a 10' Greys rod in 5wt, great stuff when you need reach....

Re: Beginners Luck

I'm with you. I love the dry fly and would rather do that then anything else, however a streamer is the next best thing, jolting strikes and its on.

Re: Bluegills on the fly (Tulsa, OK)

I use a lot of soft hackle flies and smaller sizes that work very well. I tend to get more bites and hook ups with 12 to 14 size flies. Contrast the water clarity helps. I use slight hits of...

Re: Loomis Pro4X 10' 3wt

I don't know this particular rod but I would try and contact either 'Loomis in Woodland Wa. or Leland Tackle Shop in Sonoma CA., they seem to know a lot about Loomis gear.
