G. Loomis Classic Salmon Rods
G. Loomis Classic Salmon Rods

These rods are designed for a special technique called mooching. It's a style of fishing done from a boat by slowly trolling or drifting with the wind or tide. You need a rod that is powerful to fight big fish, yet soft enough to allow the salmon to grab your bait, normally a herring or an anchovy, and munch on it for a while before taking it for keeps. The techniques will work in tidewater as well as the open ocean and it's an art form improved over the years with information and systems handed down from generation to generation. These rods feature a moderate action with a soft flex so the fish will hang on to the bait a little longer at which point you set the hook and hang on a lot longer! Our standard mooching rod is 9-feet long, but when you start putting out multiple rigs to make your run, longer rods allow you to spread out your lines and avoid tangles. You're going to get them anyway, the fish will see to that, but at least you'll feel more confident if you can keep things spread out a bit before the chaos starts. Sensitivity isn't a priority for mooching since you use a rod holder, but these rods can be used for drift fishing in the rivers where sensitivity is important and especially when you need more power for deep, swift current and big fish. GL2 material allows us to make them light yet durable, a real bonus when things get hectic and you start yanking on some big kings.
