  1. This rod has that addictive, springy feel that makes the LP series so compelling. It’s a tweener length, however, too short to handle leaders much over 12’ and a bit long for a dedicated creek rod. It’s length and action make it ideal for late season fishing on medium sized wade fishing rivers and spring creeks. This is a lightweight and steady little 3-weight that casts with great accuracy and touch. The NRX+ 383-4 LP is one of those rods with a distinct sweet zone, terrific between 25 and 45 feet, but less than automatic outside of that zone. I recommend it with an SA Trout Taper (Amplitude Smooth is my favorite version), or a Rio Technical Trout, especially with larger flies in the size #10-14 range.

  2. Of all the rods in the new LP lineup, this is the one that I was most excited to cast. This would have to be the finest 3wt Loomis rod I have ever had the pleasure of casting. It is incredibly light in hand and an absolute joy to cast. I found it to have a relatively soft tip but was still stable all throughout the rod. It is extremely accurate at all distances and is wonderfully smooth. I cast this with the SA Amplitude Trout and it was the perfect line. This would make for a great dry fly 3wt for anyone that needs to fill that niche in their quiver.

  3. I had the opportunity to cast this little beauty the other day and came away with a positive impression. First thing one notices is the lightness in hand. It is light as a feather and with line in air the recovery in the tip is apparent as well. Precision casts at close to medium distances is where this rod excels. Longer distance casts were more difficult and accuracy became a bit compromised. I tested the 383 LP with the SA Trout line and it paired very nicely. The 383 would be a fine creek to small river stick for the angler who prefers tempting fish with the dry fly.

  4. This is a fun mid-length 3-weight. The action was very even and just right for a 3-weight of this length with a subtle crispness. The Scientific Anglers Amplitude Trout taper was a lovely pairing and matched the action of the rod superbly. The NRX+ LP 383 was a delight in close delivering the fly where you were looking and landing it with the lightness of a leaf falling onto the water. At mid-length distances to 40 feet the rod was dreamy and the supple crispness to the blank made me feel totally at ease. For the angler looking for a graphite 3-weight to double as a creek tool and a small freestone fun rig look no further. A perfect length in my opinion for Southern Appalachian freestones, the Wisconsin Driftless zone and Western meadow streams with small dries and terrestrials.
