I’ve been fly fishing for quite a while and I’ve been through so many fishing rods. Obviously, things have become better over time. Bugs have been worked out and companies started building better sturdier products.
When my last rod finally accumulated a lot of wear and tear, I decided it was time for a new one. I wasn’t thrilled with the one I had for the last few years so I figured I should probably do some thorough research on what I wanted before I made any long-term commitments.
Aside from my research, I also reached out to some fellow fly fishermen that I knew. They both recommended I try the G. Loomis IMX-PRO Fly Rod from Trouts Fly Fishing. I chose to focus my further research on this rod. From what I found, this might be the one for me.
I took a leap of faith (which really was backed up by ample amounts of information, not actually faith), and ordered my fly fishing rod. When it arrived I was super anxious to use it. The weekend could not come fast enough.
When the time finally came, I went to my favorite freshwater fishing spot, hoping I’d be happy with the decision that I made. I gave it a go, and I was so very impressed, which is not an easy feat to accomplish.
It was a dream to cast. It went so smoothly. After one fishing outing with it, I knew I made the right decision. This was the best fly fishing rod I had ever used, in a total of 20 years of fishing.
I profusely thanked the guys who recommended this fishing rod. I was so grateful. I doubt I’ll ever need to purchase a new one again. I rave about it to anyone who will listen to me.
I’ve taken it on a few fishing trips now and I still am happier than ever. I catch so many fish, I almost can’t believe it. I wish I would have had this rod the entire time I’ve been fishing, but I’m happy I at least have it now. There’s no point in dwelling on the past, especially when a product didn’t exist.
I’ve continued purchasing other gear from Trouts Fly Fishing. Their customer service can’t be beaten. I highly recommend them to anyone who is already a fly fisherman or interested in becoming one.
