The G. Loomis® IMX® Steelhead Float Spinning Rod has technique specific features for fishing steelhead and smaller species of salmon with floats in swift currents. These rods are long, light, and responsive, so you can mend your line to maintain a drag-free drift; and so you can move a lot of line to set the hook. Extra length also helps protect the line when battling hard fighting fish in swift currents. Extra-long rear grips provide added leverage and fish-fighting control. IMX technology makes the Steelhead Float Spinning Rod light, powerful, and sensitive. Cork handles with composite rubber/cork accents provide a secure and comfortable grip.
