G.Loomis NRX+ Saltwater Fly Rods - New for 2020

 Includes Free Fly Line

NRX+ S CRUSH VARIABLES

Despite best laid plans, conditions in saltwater environments can slide sideways in a split-second. Walloping wind and cloud cover pack the potential to hinder the performance of even the most experienced tropical fly angler. When favor's stacked in nature's corner, level the playing field with fishing tools forged to conquer these, and other common variables.

With a primary focus of maximizing versatility, these adaptable actions improve angler capability and expand tactical opportunity in difficult fishing situations. Rolled with our most advanced compound taper construction to date, NRX+ S provides the power, line speed, and loop stability expected from modern fast-action rods, without compromising "feel" and finesse for short shots when clouds turn the light down. This means, regardless of casting distance or difficulty, NRX+ empowers anglers with confidence-boosting control in less-than-ideal situations.

DYNAMIC RECOVERY TECHNOLOGY

Dynamic Recovery Technology is a blended system of several elements. Our all-new Mega Modulus+ graphite matrix and GL8 resin system, combined with the industry's most advanced compound taper construction process, creates crisp actions with smooth, rapid recovery. The key to achieving these performance characteristics is a reimaging of our proprietary Multi-Taper Design technology. Traditionally used to enhance durability and swing weight, the G. Loomis design team developed a method of applying a similar process to improve loading efficiency and feedback. This widens the power and recovery "sweet spot", providing performance with feel regardless of casting distance.
  • Mega Modulus+ matrix is 15% lighter than original NRX, improving overall balance and feel, and limits casting fatigue
  • Smooth, rapid recovery, allowing casters to develop stable loops with less effort
  • GL8 resin possesses the same strength and impact resistance as past resin systems with less material. This reduces overall weight, and ultimately, limits fatigue
  • Materials dampen quickly, delivering a crisp, positive feel in hand

FEATURES
  • Recoil snake guides
  • Titanium SiC stripper guides
  • Full wells, AAA grade cork grip
  • Custom aluminum reel seat with fighting butt
  • Aluminum rod tube with cloth rod bag
  • Handcrafted in Woodland, Washington

G.Loomis NRX+ LP Fly Rods - New for 2020

Includes Free Fly Line



NRX+ LP / DELICATE DOMINATION

Dedicated dry fly anglers know the deal. Your job? Flawless presentation. The trout's job? Avoiding introduction.

Picky and particular, feeding trout aren't often available to receive offerings sent in a straight-line path. Perfect, delicate drifts require slinging unconventional slack yielding casts, and drag inducing micro-currents, obstacles, and other naturally occurring variables can limit tactical opportunity. When success rests on a razor's edge, take control with balanced fishing tools built to boost effectiveness in ultra-technical scenarios.

NRX+ LP is the ultimate tool for accurate and effective dry fly presentation. Tailored for supreme versatility over a wide range of casting techniques, actions are sweet, smooth, and stable, with plenty of "spank" when conditions call for an additional pinch of power.

Our all-new Mega Modulus+ graphite matrix and GL8 resin system, combined with the industry's most advanced compound taper construction process, creates crisp actions with smooth, rapid recovery.

Columbia Gorge Fishing Report - 10.13.2019


Not much has changed from last week’s report, fishing has stayed consistent. The only real thing to report is that the White River has cleared up from the Thursday’s episode of colored water. It had to be from a freak warm rain, otherwise it has been way to cold for the glacier to be puking mud. Thanks to the cold there should not be anymore mud from the glacier.

Trout: 

Deschutes Trout: 

Fall has really set in and the trout are in full fall mode. Fall is some of my favorite trout fishing, on the Deschutes especially. Water temps are great, trout are happy and no need to get out there at the crack of dawn.
From here on out you will see more small mayflies, especially on the cloudy cool days. So stalk up on Blue Winged Olive nymphs, dries and emergers. My favorite flies are Dries: Sparkle Flag BWO #18-20, Extended Body BWO #20, Parachute Extended Body BWO #20, Parachute Adams #18-20 Emergers: Sprout BWO #18-20, Challenged PT #18 Nymphs: Bead Head Flashback PT #18-20, Pheasant Tail #18-20, Flashback Pheasant Tail #18-20, WD40 #18-20

You will also see very productive fishing with a variety of midge patterns. I prefer Zebra Midges Black, Brown, Tan #20

When nymphing I prefer drop all of my smaller flies below a bigger heavier nymph. Here are my favorite larger nymphs: TJ Hooker #8-10, Jigged PT #14-16, Jigger PT Purple #16, Bead Head PT #12-16. Many others work, but those are my favorites.

Fall is also a great time to break out the Trout Spey and swing some streamers, wet flies or soft hackles. Trout tend to be very active to a swung fly this time of year. Streamer takes are VIOLENT! Here are my favorites streamers: Rio Precious Metal, Kiwi Muddler, Sculpzila #8 (White, Olive/White, Natural) and Beaded Wooly Buggers #8 variety of colors.

Small Mountain Streams: 

Fall is also the best time of the year to fish the small creeks and streams around The Gorge area. Places like Trout Lake Creek, Lewis River above Swift Reservoir, East Fork of the Hood, White River to name a few. Fish in these locations are small, 6” to 8” average, but they are always looking up. These waters offer great dry fly fishing. Take your light rod and have a blast.

Lakes:  

Some of the best fishing you will find in our lakes is over the next month. Fish are very active all day this time of year.
Best results have been fishing an intermediate or slow sinking line with a variety of #8-10 leach patters in Black or Brown. Suspending a Balance Leach under an indicator with a floating line has been lethal to. Dry fly fishing has been good in the mid-morning through the evening. Favorite dries are Parachute Adams #14-16, Tilt Wing Callibaetis #14-16, Griffiths Gnat #18.
Stillwater Trout Selection 

Steelhead:  

Fishing on the lower Deschutes continues to stay really consistent. There are fish throughout the system now, but the lower 20 miles of the river is still the most productive. Remember many of those upper Columbia Steelhead like Clearwater fish will park in the lower river until as late as Christmas. There has been great dry line fishing when light levels are low or overcast. Put on the sink tip and go deep once the sun hits the water.

The Klickitat has been in great shape with few people on it. Those who know the river well are doing great right now. Water temps have cooled so dry line fishing is going to be very limited to none. Go deep with a sink tip for best results on a swing. Fishing a fly under and indicator from a boat is also very effective.
Klickitat Super Slammer Kit

John Day River has started producing some fish over the last few weeks. The early rains and cooler weather is going to really help the JD see some fish much earlier than we have seen in the past few years.

Smallmouth:  

Water temps are cooling now so Smallmouth fishing starts to slow down now. The Columbia will still be good for another few weeks and would be your best choice.

    New Product Review: Scientific Anglers Head Wallet



    If you're like me keeping your spey heads/tips or fly lines organized is key when you have more than just a couple. Not all head wallets are created equally! Some head wallets, after putting only a few heads into their slots, are difficult to close or keep closed. The NEW Scientific Anglers Head Wallet is a refreshing upgrade that allows you to put a dozen shooting heads, fly lines or whatever else you want to keep organized into the provided compartments and still be able to easily close and keep it closed.

    What I like about this, and the design, is that I can actually open the entire wallet like an accordion and lay it flat on the table or tailgate of my truck and see everything that is inside. Although initially it can be a bit confusing when trying to close it back up, but once you do it a couple of times it's a piece of cake.

    The retail price of $29.95 is not too bad either. if you're like me and like to be organized, it's a small price to pay in keeping heads or lines organized and knowing exactly where they are.
    In each pocket there is a space to put a label tag in to know exactly what is in that particular pocket (see photo) and where to put it back once you are done with it.

    If you are looking for a solid organizational tool for storing heads...Pick yours up today at the Gorge Fly Shop or online at www.gorgeflyshop.com you'll be glad you did!
    John
