G. Loomis Float Rods

Steelhead anglers in the upper Midwest and on the tributary rivers and stream of the Great Lakes have been fishing with floats for a number of years. It’s a very effective technique, especially when there are a lot of snags in the water or the fish are suspended. It’s kind of like fishing for bluegill with a bobber and red worms, but the current is a lot swifter, the fish a lot bigger and the anglers a little older (at least chronologically). These rods are long for good reason. You need to be able to mend your line so you can maintain a drag-free drift and cover as much water as you can without moving, plus when you lift the tip to set the hook, you can move a lot of line which is especially important when the floats are set deep or you’re at the end of a long, extended drift. The extra length also helps protect the line, especially considering the size of the fish you’re after and the crazy way they fight when hooked. The advantage you’ll experience with the G.Loomis float rods is both technical and aesthetic. The rods are beautifully, hand-crafted with Fuji guides, Fuji reel seats and lightweight cork grips. There are three different handle configurations based on the length of the rod and the desired weight. One model has the “Skamania” handle configuration for using either a standard spinning or single-action reels. The other two handles are basically Northwest configuration with extra-long rear grips for added leverage and fish-fighting control. We use our proprietary “fiber blend technology” to reduce weight as much as possible and apply specific characteristics for each section of the rods for strength as well as balance and sensitivity. The really neat thing about float fishing is your ability to fish water where before, using conventional drift gear was considered unfishable. It’s fun and effective way to catch one of world’s great game-fish!!
