The ultimate light-line steelhead drift rod. The perfect action to handle 6-pound line and a subtle power, much like a fly rod, that tires fish quickly. We originally designed the G Loomis STR1141S for the western technique known as boondogging. The technique requires a more forgiving rod, because the fish will drop the bait the minute it feels any resistance. The G Loomis STR1141S is soft enough to let you "see" the strike before the fish has time to react. A good bank rod, a great boat rod!
