G-Loomis STR 1264 C (GL2)

Length: 10ft 6in Handle: D Pieces: 2 Line Weight: 10 - 20lb Lure Weight: 3/8 - 1.5oz Action: Moderate Power: Med-Heavy A powerful, extra-long drift rod designed specifically for the big rivers of British Columbia. While it is basically made for float fishing, it will work equally well using standard drift gear, especially in heavy current and deep slots where you need more power. It has a medium-heavy power rating that makes it ideal for silvers and chum salmon as well and it makes a great downrigger/planer board rod for trolling in the Great Lakes. 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.
