8 weight rods aren’t only for saltwater! As our good friend and customer Steve Flood found out, a 9 foot 8 weight G. Loomis NRX combined with a Tibor Everglades is the perfect set up for catching huge 10 lb. lake run browns! We joke about 20 over 20 here on the Yellowstone (20 fish over 20 inches) but Steve said they actually caught 10 fish over 10 pounds in just a couple days! If you are thinking about taking a Great Lakes steelhead or HOG migratory brown trout trip, give us a call for the ultimate 8 weight outfit!
