G. Loomis Pro4X Rods

8' - #3 9' - #4 9' - #6
8' - #4 9' - #5  
G. Loomis took a page from their NRX blank technology to develop a new series of fly rods that "new-to-the-sport" and intermediate fly-fishers will learn to appreciate and expert anglers will wonder how this much performance gets packed into such an affordable package. A new taper design along with a noticeable weight-reduction in the upper half of the blank allows G. Loomis to make a fly rod series that is incredibly light, recovers quickly and casts with unbelievable precision. It's the G .Loomis way... reduce as much weight as possible, take total advantage of the materials and create a taper that is dynamic, efficient and user-friendly. PRO4x rods are as beautiful to look at as they are easy to cast. They come in all the right sizes to fit fisheries a widely diverse as spring creeks, farm ponds, black bass, steelhead, salmon and saltwater. These are rods any fly-fisher would be proud to own!!
Have us equip your new PRO4x rods with the highest quality lines available. Be ready for anything! Ship your reels, or buy new ones and we will load each one up with your new PRO4x Promo Fly Line and just the right amount of the right kind of backing (AT NO EXTRA CHARGE). The fly lines listed below are the best match for each rod model.


Length: 8'     Line: #3     Pieces: 4

When the conditions call for small flys, light lines and a stealthy approach, this little 8-foot beauty is just what the doctor ordered! Made to order for small creeks and streams where you don't need to cast a long ways, this rod will make even the smallest trout seem like a monster!

PRO4x964-4 Length: 8'     Line: #4     Pieces: 4
Sometimes the small streams hold big surprises and you need a little more beef in a short rod. This 8-foot, 4-weight will handle larger trout and panfish, no problem and It's great for fishing brush-lined creeks where you need to make short, accurate casts to be successful.

PRO4x1084-4 Length: 9'     Line: #4     Pieces: 4
A longer 4-weight for fishing small dry flies and nymphs on bigger streams and lakes. The tip is soft enough to protect light tippets and still handle large fish. There's a subtle power in the lower half of the rod that helps you make longer casts and cover more water.

PRO4x1085-4 Length: 9'     Line: #5     Pieces: 4

The best all-around size for trout on rivers, small streams and still-waters, this is a delightful casting rod with sufficient power for long-range casts yet it's still light enough to enjoy even the smaller fish. Will fish sink-tip lines and full-sink lines, no problem, but more suited to a floater.

PRO4x1086-4 Length: 9'     Line: #6     Pieces: 4

This rod is the best choice for fishing windy conditions. It's slightly more powerful than it's 5-weight counterpart and that makes it a good choice for fishing streamers, large dries and bigger nymphs. It has enough power to handle large fish and provides positive line control at all distances.

444 Classic
One of the all-time classics, the Cortland 444® “peach” line has set a standard for durability and all-round performance for over 50 years.

Trout Boss
The Trout Boss™ is, quite simply, the best trout line Cortland has ever made. Designed with a unique weight-forward taper and 64-foot head, the Trout Boss excels at extreme-distance casting. The longer head includes a 25-foot back taper that allows you to carry more line in the air without overpowering your rod – and also maintain better control of your fly line on the water. Featuring Cortland's proprietary PST™ coating material for reduced friction through the guides, plus an 18-inch high-floating Dyna-Tip,™ this trout line brings out the very best in medium-fast and fast-action rods
