IMX STEELHEAD FLOAT

From $395.00

Float fishing for steelhead is a very effective technique, especially when there are a lot of snags in the water or the fish are suspended. It's kind of like fishing for bluegill with a bobber and red worms, but the current is a lot swifter, the fish a lot bigger and the reward a lot greater. Float fishing requires a long, light, responsive rod so you can mend your line to maintain a drag-free drift and cover as much water as you can, plus when you lift the tip to set the hook, you can move a lot of line which is especially important when the floats are set deep or you're at the end of a long, extended drift. The extra length also helps protect the line, especially considering the size of the fish you're after and the crazy way they fight when hooked. The advantage you'll experience with the our IMX float rods is technical and as well as aesthetic. Extra-long rear grips provide added leverage and fish-fighting control. It's fun and effective way to catch one of world's great game-fish!! Available in both spinning and casting configurations!

Technology

  • MULTI-TAPER DESIGN

    MULTI-TAPER DESIGN

    Since 1982, we’ve pushed the boundaries of manufacturing technology, materials innovation, and product design. That’s why G. Loomis rods deliver superior performance, heightening angler experience and effectiveness on the water. While there are countless examples of this philosophy in action, one technology in particular encapsulates our drive to build the most advanced rods in the world: Multi-Taper Design.

    Multi-Taper Design is best described as a series of “micro-tapers” within the overall taper of the rod. This unique, proprietary process allows us to use more material on potential break points and less material everywhere else. To accomplish this, we manufactured a custom rolling table...and it’s the only one in existence today. The result is a catalog of precisely defined actions that strike a perfect balance between durability and performance.
