The G. Loomis 6129-4 Asquith is a lightweight fast action rod for steelhead and Atlantic salmon in medium to larger rivers. This rod is most comfortable with smaller wet flies and wakers, but will also cast lighter weighted tube flies and intruders. It performs superbly with Skagit lines in the 450 to 480 grain weight range, as well as Scandi lines weighing 385-400-grains.
Forged from cutting-edge technology and legendary design. Developed and hand-finished in Woodland, Washington and rolled in the world's only Spiral X production facility in Kumamoto, Japan. Introducing Asquith: the most technologically advanced fly rod in the world. Shimano's proprietary Spiral-X technology utilizes a core layer, a longitudinal middle layer, and a reverse-axis fiber outer layer. This unique construction increases rigidity without increasing weight, reduces ovalization, and provides virtually instantaneous power transmission when casting or fighting a fish.
