Default Re: Noted Fly Angler, Guide, Instructor April Vokey Now on Board With G.Loomis

Back when I was making a lot rods I stopped making them on Loomis blanks just because of it, and they have gotten worse. In fact they no longer sell blanks, which is OK because what they did to them made them unwantable anyway. I'm not sure who they had doing their business strategy after Gary Loomis sold out to Shimano, but whoever it was really wasn't doing the company much good. Actually, they started going weird before he sold it. As I see it, other than some extra cash in April's pockets, I think G Loomis stands more to gain from her than the other way around. This is the first thing they have done in a decade I thought was actually a good thing.
i had a sweet gl3 when i was in high school that i really liked....my first and only loomis rod i ever owned. or for that matter, even fished.
i've seen em on the auction site and have thought about it
but i would agree there kinda under the radar lately.
and congrats to april!
