G-Loomis CROSSCURRENT-Fly Fishing Rod FR10610 PRO 1
Here's some real horsepower for casting big flies for big fish, especially on windy days! It's a great choice for handling big fish in tough situations, whether it's the mangroves or an old wreck. It's all about power and performance. If that old tarpon rod is wearing you out, this is a fun alternative and will handle surprisingly large fish. A great choice for everything from big stripers and small tuna to cobia.
A few years ago, during visits to the Florida Keys, G Loomis noticed a lot of guides rinsing off their rods and reels back at the docks and then carrying them up to their truck to go home. They asked them why they didn't take them apart and they said, "We never take them apart. No need to... we store them with reels and lines on." That's when it hit them! If these guys were happy to leave the rods assembled, even going so far as to glue the ferrules together, why not make a one-piece rod and avoid the ferrules all together? They used "fiber blend technology" to create a high performance blank that has an incredible combination of light weight, strength and power. They're light, sensitive and sneaky powerful. If you're one of those fanatical saltwater flats anglers that doesn't require the convenience of a travel rod, this is the innovative thinking you've come to expect from G.Loomis. Each rod comes in a protective rod sock. Pro-1 CrossCurrent fly rods are the buzz of the saltwater fly market. Just another way we help make each day you spend on the water memorable!
