G. Loomis RoaringRiver Dredger Spey Rods (Skagit Style)

The term " SKAGIT CASTING " was coined in the early 1990's to describe on offshoot system of spey casting being used at the time by steelheaders in the Skagit River area. It was mostly characterized by its relatively short shootinghead lines. However in its original context, the term skagit casting described a method of casting that exercised one particular premise to accomplish its casts- the sustained anchor concept. This works off the principles of rod loading that are the opposite of contacts spey casting. sustained anchor casting uses the "unsticking" of a thoroughly "stuck" flyline from the river's surface as the mechanism for creating casting energy. Allowing you to change the direction of the cast and providing the primary mechanism for loading the rod, the casts that work best with this concept are the Circle Spey, Snap T. The Perry Poke and Skagit style Doublespey. The ROARINGRIVER DREDGER SERIES is designed with a moderate/fast taper and softer action to balance the medium stroke required to cast short to medium belly lines used for these techniques, from the light 12'9", #6/7GLX, to the powerful 14', #9/10. When you need to get down fast in swift, deep drifts, the new ROARINGRIVER DREDGER will comfortably manage the sinking tips and weighted flies needed for SKAGIT style casting. The seven models, ranging from 12'9" #6/7 to 14' #9/10, are designed to throw short to medium belly 38 to 62 ft. lines using the balanced medium casting stroke, refined over time by the northwest steelhead fishermen. Requiring less back cast space than traditional casting, this series of rods provide excellent distance with some shoot to the cast. DREDGER GLX - This is the top of the Dredger line, featuring our proprietary GLX graphite along with the finest rod components available today. With nickel titanium recoil guides by REC these cast as slick as they look. Exquisitely crafted Portuguese cork handles with a special composite cork end-cap and fore-grip are fitted to our exclusive offset-oval sculptured barrel real seat, each with an ivory style insert engraved with a fly graphic. DREDGER KISPIOX - For a balanced medium casting stroke, this special graphite blend is tailored to the exact specifications needed to perform Skagit style casts. With Hopkins and Holloway components and beautiful Portuguese cork handles, the Kispiox rods are as beautiful and as powerful as the river they're named after.

Perfectly suited to summer time low water conditions for trout, steelhead and smaller salmon, it is a blast for shad and other fish willing to take a swinging fly.
