G-Loomis CROSSCURRENT-Fly Fishing Rod FR10612 PRO 1
Here's a big tarpon rod you can cast all day long! From sails to striped marlin, this is an excellent choice because it's light weight, yet unbelievably powerful and will cast large, wind-resistant flies into the next lagoon. When those big tarpon start cruising the flats, this is the rod you'll want in your hands. It provides unbelievable casting range and accuracy thanks to a very powerful, magnum butt design. It's the most unique, high performance 12-weight fly rod on the saltwater scene.
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!
