Default G. Loomis Rod Giveaway

Good day to all,

I have a very simple question. How good are G. Loomis fly rods ? I know that the giveaway next Monday is a G. Loomis, but do not know much about them. In fact, I do not know any of my fly fishing friends who has one. I also heard that you can receive one of the G. Loomis "Fear No Fish" decals. Does anyone know where I could get one ? I saw the hats at a sporting goods store recently, but it was not part of the budget to purchase a $20 baseball cap.

Thanks & "get in the water"

Definitely great rods. Their GL3 is the go-to workhorse rod for many people. Their GLX was one of the first very fast action rods out there and is still cherished by many for long casts and such. GLX 8wt is one of the greatest Bonefish rods out there. I haven't cast any of their new stuff, but I bet its great as well. They're really getting into the spey market as well.

My only Loomis is built up from a 7'6" popping rod blank. Its tough as hell but doesn't bend much when I'm casting it. Might catch some pigs on it tomm. That or the Scott HP stump-yanker, haven't decided yet. Good to know the owner of Strike King....

Crazy times.

Sister is pregnant and having serious troubles. Couple of surgeries and such.

Job changed. Now am running my dad's pallet business so I had to get that going.

Things are settling down now so I can do other things. Have not fished for two months or more. I really need to get out.

Sorry for slacking but looks like I am back in business...........
