Loomis Jig & Worm Spinning Rods - Whether you fish from a johnboat or a high performance bass boat – 3 days a year or 300; there are a number of effective methods to catch bass and we have a rod for just about everyone of them.

That’s why we have over 30 new, completely re-designed casting and spinning models featuring our new, split-grip handle engineered specifically for high performance bass fishing.

We know what you expect in a bass rod and we know how to make it light, strong and reliable. The new GL2 Series will do everything you ask and more! Shop G. Loomis Jig & Worm Spinning Rods

G. Loomis Drop Shot Rods - A lot of what bass fishing is all about happens on or near the bottom. Bass are structure-oriented critters that use the contours of the lake bottom like a highway. Dropshotting allows you to concentrate your efforts in those areas where they slow down to rest or stage. It a special technique for fishing the holding spots. With a sinker at the end of the line and the hook & bait up on the main line a few inches off the bottom, it's all about getting them to see the bait dangling there seductively, waiting for their reaction. The beauty of this technique is that it doesn't take a lot of experience to be successful. The rods are designed with soft tips to allow the fish to inhale the bait without feeling a lot of resistance and when the angler feels the tension or just sees the line jump, all they have to do is raise the rod and the rod will do the rest. When the bite gets tough, it's especially effective. When the bite is on, it's a lot of fun. You'll appreciate all of the thought put into these rods with the very first fish. They're designed to do one thing... fish a drop shot rig effectively, hook the fish effectively and fight the fish effectively. Get your camera ready! Shop G. Loomis Drop Shot Rods

G. Loomis ShakeyHead Rods - A great approach for getting results in lakes where the fish get a lot of pressure and have seen about every type of bait you can imagine. Shallow, deep, around docks and even when the fish are on the beds, the ShakyHead rig may not be the go-to tactic, but it’s highly effective when the going gets tough. It’s a unique style that requires a special rod. It’s kind of like drop-shotting right on the bottom. The rod has a little stiffer feel because the real flex starts about 4-6 inches from the tip-top, creating a unique action so you can shake the jighead/finesse worm combination without moving the bait a lot. It takes some practice, but it can really make a difference in your success rate. There are two different power ratings available… a "mag light" version and a "mag-medium". There’s a GLX spinning rod in the mag-medium model and there’s a casting rod in the mag-medium, “fiber blend" model. When the fish are tight to the bottom, this will get in their face like no other technique! Shop G. Loomis ShakeyHead Rods

G. Loomis Bronzeback Series Spinning Rods - Smallmouth bass can be finicky at times. They are always ornery, stubborn, difficult to catch and at times... downright mean, but boy can they fight!

They’ll test your temper, your patience and your tackle. We've spent years fishing with and picking the brains of literally hundreds of anglers that target smallmouth.

Loomis Bronzeback Series Spinning Rods

G. Loomis Classic Steelhead Spinning Rods - These are the rods that put G.Loomis on the map. They are light, sensitive and extremely efficient. In our opinion, the two most important factors in a steelhead rod are sensitivity and line control. It’s amazing… as big as these fish are, their bite is so subtle that if you don’t have an extremely sensitive rod you can miss a lot of fish. Drift fishermen, whether fishing from a boat or the shore, face many variables. Water levels fluctuate depending on the weather. Some rivers are low and clear, requiring light line and a stealthy approach, while others are big and more off color, allowing heavier gear and no finesse at all. Rod length is important! Anglers fishing small coastal streams can get by with a short rod while longer rods work much better on big rivers. A longer rod gives you a more direct angle of entry into the water and that means less line drag from the current. Less drag means more sensitivity and knowing what's going on at the end of your line is what makes the difference. G.Loomis steelhead rods are designed with a dynamic, sensitive tip and a moderately powered butt that allow you to fish a variety of line weights and lure sizes. We make several different lengths and power-ratings, giving you numerous options for most fishing conditions. Select the rod that best matches your requirements giving careful consideration to the different levels of graphite performance. Shop G. Loomis Classic Steelhead Spinning Rods

G. Loomis Classic Hot Shot Steelhead & Salmon Spinning Rods - These are specialty mooching rods, designed for a single-action reel, so common to those fisheries in the northern regions. It's a style of fishing done from a boat by slowly trolling - motor mooching - 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, feeling very little resistance. That makes them hang on long enough for you to react and set the hook. Unlike standard mooching-casting rods, these rods have a long foregrip and a short rear grip to allow you to hold the rod ahead of the reel. It's a lot like usilng a powerful fly rod, balancing nicely with the special single-action fly reels used for this technique. The "STR" (steelhead) rods adapt well for float fishing in the estuaries and rivers and are an excellent choice for silver salmon. The "SAR" (salmon) rods are designed for fishing kings and large silvers in tidewater, river mouths or in the open ocean. The long, soft rods provide excellent line control which is important when these critters get carried away near the boat and allow for any mistakes the angler may make during the battle. GL2 makes them durable, yet light to help keep the angler in control and with the reel attached behind the long foregrip, they balance nicely. Shop G. Loomis Class Hot Shot Steelhead & Salmon Spinning Rods

G. Loomis Classics Spin Jig Rods - These are special, fast-action rods designed to give warm-water spin fishermen the power and performance of a casting rod in a spinning configuration. While many of these rods are similar to our casting models in both actions and power-ratings, they are rated for slightly lighter line because spinning reels traditionally don’t handle heavier line as well as a casting reel and in most cases, using “heavy” line (17-pound test or higher) drastically reduces casting distance and performance, even with oversized guides. These rods were originally developed for fishing soft plastics for smallmouth bass, but have since been discovered by walleye anglers for vertical jigging applications as well as grubs and light bottom-bounce rigs. There are five different power “groups”, ranging from 2- to 17-pound test line. Many of these rods are suitable for light saltwater use. They are powerful, efficient tools capable of handling a variety of line and lures sizes. They are just what the doctor ordered for bass, walleye and pike on the freshwater side and you’ll find a number of ways to use them in light saltwater applications. They are light, sensitive and extremely accurate. The more popular models are available in GLX, IMX, GL3 and GL2. Others are available in the most popular size and material based on consumer demand.

G. Loomis Escape Series Travel Spinning Rods -

Our free time has become more valuable than ever and destination resorts are catering more and more to all segments of the fishing market. Saltwater flats fishing is not just a fly fishing thing anymore and add to the mix, destinations like Alaska, South America, Africa and Australia and there is a very strong demand for good quality travel rods in spin and cast. Traveling anglers require flexibility in their equipment. Rods that will handle a broad range of fishing challenges like ultra-lite trout and crappie action in freshwater to snook and tarpon fishing on saltwater flats. As more exotic fishing destinations are discovered, we find ourselves further and further afield. Most anglers would rather lose their clothing than their equipment. You can always fish in the pants and shirt you wore on the plane. If it’s too hot, make yourself some cut-offs and you can get by just fine, but you bought that high performance rod just for this trip, so having it arrive two days late - or not at all - is NOT an option. The last thing you want to lose on any fishing expedition is your rods and reels. Fly anglers are taking spin or cast back-up rods for windy, tough casting days and serious all tackle anglers are discovering the advantage of "carrying on" pack rods. It’s systems management for the traveling sport fisher and we provide the rods. Escape travel rods are all three-piece. Each rod has very specific line and lure ratings which, unique to the Escape Series include definitive descriptions of what type of spin or cast rod each are as well as the optimum line recommended, for example: the ETR75-3 ULS 4 is an Escape Travel Rod, 75" in length, 3-piece configuration, Ultra Light Spin with an optimal line rating of 4-pound test.
