    Re: I can't wait to take out my new stick!!!!!!!!!

    Simms ,
    I have a GL4 9' 9weight 2 pc its my Salmon/Steelhead/Striper rod I had since they introduced the GL4. It was custom built by a friend of mine I really think this is their best Great Lakes Salmon/Steelhead action/rod...currently i bet the Native series is also a great bunch of rods as well YMMV. The GL4 has caught a ton of Salmon/Steelhead and Stripers. This spring i aquired a GLoomis GLX 9' 10 weight 4 pc .It is a factory rod an was made when GLoomis was Gloomis before the Shimano buyout. I guess that makes it calssic classic ....not sure. I do know its a rocket. I also know that the rod was only fished once an cast a handfull of times before that .I love GLoomis rods, I also have a few favorites from other manufacturers as well.
    If i had a job an good money coming in I would be buying a few sticks this winter. I would definitely go check out a GLoomis NRX, if I didnt like that I'd try Ebay an hunt for a GLoomis GLX in 10 foot lengths for 8,9,and 10wts i do know they made them that long.
    IMHO the GL4 is not as capable throwing into the wind with sinking or Teeny lines...really have to work .I have fished a friend's GLX before i had mine an know it beats the shitty wind down and throws line like a rocket launched towards space.

    One of my favorite rods is my 7weight 10' Loomis Native Run. PURE SEX!

    My 11' 8wt native run switch comes in at a close second.

    That GL4 surely is a rocket ship, Rick. Love that rod. NRX is stiffer than a honey moon prick.

    I was understanding that the NAtive Run series was great for Great Lakes Trib fishing. Unless its a 10'er or longer now i wont buy another rod for up there. I really think that 10 ers are the way to go up there,I also think Switch rods are also a great tool depending where you go. Spey rods also have their spots..on the Salmon i would say from Pineville downstream..above that no good...switch or tenfooter way better.

    You're welcome to take my native's for a spin if you want..Just be careful and exit only is exit only. The Chief hates when some members of his tribe comes back bow-legged.

    Re: I can't wait to take out my new stick!!!!!!!!!

    I'm just posting to this thread because it has a provocative name and because for a long time I haven't been able to start my own thread on this POS website. (memory storage overload something something)

    w/ apologies to DC - it's a great site. But think about how much greater it would be if I could start threads.

    This is a question about saltwater. I'll be down in the Island Beach State Park area this weekend. I'm bringing an 8-weight with two lines, floating and full sinking, and a 6-weight with a sink tip. I've got a bunch of clousers in different colors and some other stuff that looked salty to me, but in case it's not clear yet, I don't know fuckall about fishing saltwater.

    What flies should I be throwing? With what? And where: on the bayside or the beachside?

    I don't care about trying to land a giant striper, because that's not going to happen. I would be more than content with a couple of weakfish, small blues, even whiting or flounder for the table would be welcome.

    Just totally clueless here.

    Re: I can't wait to take out my new stick!!!!!!!!!

    Fluke is closed for the year. I cant really help you when it comes to sw fly fishing. Seems like a tough way to fish the surf to me. There are a few guys here who have some knowledge on the subject like Rusty and Trico Mike. The only thing I can say is go really early or really late.

    Re: I can't wait to take out my new stick!!!!!!!!!

    Yes...I can add my knowledge of saltwater fly fishing...
    1. Tie a good knot
    2. Make sure your hook is sharp
    3. make sure the fly gets in the water and looks like food..
    Good luck!!!!!
