Here at Backwater Angler we have a great selection of G. Loomis rods for both fresh and salt water. The NRX LP’s are perfect for trout fishing , with the high modulus carbon with a softer tip than the original NRX, allows for delicate presentation with protection on fine tippet. For those who fly fish saltwater, the NRX 8 – 12 wt has proved extremely popular for those going on a trip down to the tropics or those looking to fish for stripers on the bay.
Here is the Loomis description of the NRX saltwater range of fly rods:
Just when you thought fly rods couldn’t get any lighter or more dynamic, along comes a rod that surpasses anything ever made. Thanks to a proprietary, high-tech, nano-silica resin system and the genius of rod designer, Steve Rajeff, these NRX saltwater fly rods are the ultimate in extreme performance. They have an unbelievable “strength-to-weight” ratio and can handle everything from bonefish to small tuna. Tarpon anglers, especially those traveling to far off places, really appreciate the 4-piece construction. Wind is not problem given the fast tapers and stiff design that create incredibly tight loops for long, accurate casts, even in the wind. Ranging from a sneaky powerful 7-weight, all the way up to the tarpon lover’s 12-weight, there isn’t a fish on the flats or in the tidewater you can’t handle. Small tuna, big Cobia, even striped and white marlin are no match for the strength and power of NRX. It’s everything you want in a saltwater fly rod and more!
