WTS/WTT: G.Loomis Metolius 5/6 Trout Spey

Quote:
The bushes are just behind
you. The fish are 60 feet out. What do you do? Roll out a single or double spey cast and you cover the spot, then mend, extending your drift to the confluence of the next river system. Steelhead and salmon anglers have been capitalizing on the use of the long rod to make casts with limited back cast space, and to keep the fly in the water more, not in the air. The 13'4" #5/6 Trout Spey is so light that it will still be fun catching a 12-inch redside rainbow on the Deschutes River. An 18-incher will feel like a summer run steelhead on a big rod. It is an ultra light two-hand rod, but a strong caster can cast it one handed. A 13'4" one hand rod? It's is awesome at managing long leaders and nymph patterns in deep water spots, and can also push out large dries like stoneflies and hoppers patterns. Isaac Walton would be jealous.
- $300 Shipped in US. Add $50 for international.
- Possible trade for 7-8WT spey rod

Spey trade

How about a 9wt Spey rod? I have a loop 9132-4 opti Spey. I have been thinking about moving.

BUMP -- Have gotten some decent trade offers, but still looking to see what else I could get. Not looking to add cash by any means, looking for an equal trade.

If I had the extra coin I'd be all over this. Great rod and price. Best of luck finding a buyer for it.

I think I fish, in part, because it’s an anti-social, bohemian business that, when gone about properly, puts you forever outside the mainstream culture without actually landing you in an institution. –John Gierach
