Specific Rod DetailsBack to top

STR1024S (GL2, GL3) - A good choice for fishing small to medium-sized rivers where you have sufficient room to work a fish once it's hooked. Best suited for eight or ten pound line and half-ounce lures, this rod is surprisingly strong. It will handle most smaller salmon species and steelhead, but it's on the lighter end of the spectrum. Makes a very nice boat rod for trolling for walleye and large trout, especially with side planers or downriggers. If you like to use a longer rod on the flats, this also makes an exceptional redfish rod.

STR1025S (GL2, GL3) - Designed for winter steelhead, where you need a little more backbone due to the larger weights required to fish high water conditions, the 1025S has sufficient power to fish chinook salmon. But it's actually best suited for silvers and chums. Because it has the power to move fish and bring them boat-side without a chase, this is a good choice for both boat and bank fishing. Additionally, it's a good alternative rod for stripers, blues and other medium-sized saltwater species.

STR1082S (GL2, IMX) - The 1082S is a very nice light-action summer-run steelhead rod, designed to fish six to ten-pound line in low, clear water conditions. It has a light, responsive tip with a fairly soft mid-section that allows you to lob small lures or bait to spooky fish. The butt section, however, is still fairly powerful, allowing you to handle large fish as well. While it's designed with light line applications in mind, this rod can also handle large salmon on ten-pound test, which makes it a nice option for low-water fall salmon fishing.

STR1083S (GL2) - This new spinning version of the STR1083 is designed for big summer-run steelies and small salmon. It balances nicely with eight to ten-pound line, allowing you to downsize your baits and lures in clear, low-water conditions. In fact, you can drop all the way down to six-pound test, yet still have the power to handle a twenty-pound steelhead. A good all-around drift rod, and a better-than-average spoon rod for big Western rivers

STR1084S (GL2) - As you travel north through steelhead country, rod lengths gradually increase, especially on the spinning side. When you look at the techniques, it is easy to see why. This 9 foot rod handles long leaders and light leads required for low, clear water of summer, and the heavier gear needed to fish the high, green waters of winter.

STR1141S (GL3, IMX, GLX) - The ultimate light line steelhead drift rod. It has the perfect action to handle six-pound line and a subtle power, much like a fly rod, that tires fish quickly. Loomis originally designed this rod for the Western technique known as boondogging where the angler lets his boat drift the same speed as the river. This allows the bait to maintain a drag-free drift beside the boat. The technique requires a more forgiving rod because the fish will drop the bait the minute it feels any resistance. Consequently, this rod is soft enough to let you "see" the strike before the fish has time to react. It works well for both winter and summer-run fish. Other applications include still-fishing bait for big trout, and casting small spinners and spoons from shore.

STR1143S-SK (GL2) - Here's a Great Lakes steelhead rod. It has a Skamania Style handle, which is a fancy way of saying its foregrip is long and its rear grip short. Why? For added leverage and line control, especially with slip-bobber rigs and light splitshot dropper rigs. Because the center of balance is back behind the angler's hand, the reel acts like a counter balance when lifting the rod tip. The extra length also gives you better control, especially with longer leaders. This short-butt style is very popular for drift fishing the Great Lakes tributaries for salmon and steelhead.

STR1201S-SK (GL2) - A specialty steelhead rod designed to fish the smaller, brushy streams of the Great Lakes region, where you need a quick hookset to keep the fish clear of brush and logs. The handle grips are reversed from the traditional western rod styles, with a long foregrip and short rear grip. This lets the angler put his hand ahead of the reel, increasing sensitivity and moving the center of balance back. That way he can lift the rod tip quickly without having to lift the reel. In fact, the reel acts as a counterweight, actually helping to lift the tip. The 10' length increases line and lure control and puts a lot of pressure on a fish, which is especially helpful in the log jams and brushy bends of these rivers. This short-butt style is very popular for drift fishing the Great Lakes tributaries for salmon and steelhead.

STR1265S (GL2) - Like the 1265C, this spinning rod was designed for smaller salmon in British Columbia. Works great with float fishing or standard drift gear. And it's a good alternative for downriggers and planer boards in the Great Lakes. Also a perfect rod for casting spoons and spinners from the shore at prime river mouths.

The best gift I could give my son.  (from prior model)
Pros: Sensitive, Durable, Good Tip Action, Easy To Transport, Accurate Casting, Flexible
Best Uses: River Fishing
Comments: This rod was a gift to my son and his first G Loomis rod. I own several and swear by them. The expense prohibits many from the experience thus I chose to introduce my son early so he could appreciate the quality/ sensitivity of an exceptional piece of fishing equipment. I'm confident he will have a positive comment to post after fishing with me on the rivers of NorCal.

A nice light, but strong steelhead rod   (from prior model)
Pros: Light-weight, Good Tip Action, Sensitive, Accurate Casting
Cons: Handle a little rough
Best Uses: Steelhead river fishing
Comments: I bought this rod for its light-weight and coupled it with a light-weight magnesium reel. This combination is easy on my arm, but has more than enough strength to handle a substantial Skykomish River steelhead.

P-Line Hydrofloat is a Spectra based line with a thermal fused coating. Although Hydrofloat line can be used for many applications and works well on both spinning and baitcasting reels, this specialty line was designed for float and centerpin fishing for salmon and steelhead.
