The G Loomis SR841 is a dandy two-piece, ultra-light spinning rod, designed for lakes and ponds where longer casts and lighter line lead to success. The combination of the 7-foot length and the ultra-light action makes it a good deep-water panfish rod. And if you like to fish bubble/fly combinations for trout, the G Loomis SR841 will certainly do the trick, especially with a smaller bubble. It's also a nice rod for drifting single salmon eggs ( or imitation ) for trout in small streams. All in all, we consider this the perfect 4-pound test rod.
