Salmon can be found in the ocean, in bays and in rivers. In the river, you'll find them holding in front of rocks, behind rocks, beside rocks, in depressions, above the riffle, below the riffle and, on occasion, in the riffle. They hug the bottom and they suspend. They stage up in tidewater, waiting for the rains to fill the rivers. Basically, they are where you find them and try as you might, it would be rare to find a rod that could handle all the varying techniques required to be successful. That's exactly why we developed the Salmon Series. Unique actions and rod designs made to give you the optimum advantage when it comes to catching these giant sea-run creatures whose bite, at times, can be lighter than a trout. Techniques vary from region to region, waterway to waterway. There's drift mooching and power mooching in the ocean, trolling in the estuaries and drift fishing, plug fishing, bobber fishing and back-bouncing in the rivers. The fish can be aggressive, selective, moody and negative all in the same day. Fish found in a nice run or a deep hole one day can move upstream and disappear overnight. Holes totally devoid of fish one day can be packed the next. It's the nature of the beast and it's why we make 12 different models covering five different techniques. This is our turf! This is salmon country and it's what we do.

Since 1982, we’ve pushed the boundaries of manufacturing technology, materials innovation, and product design. That’s why G. Loomis rods deliver superior performance, heightening angler experience and effectiveness on the water. While there are countless examples of this philosophy in action, one technology in particular encapsulates our drive to build the most advanced rods in the world: Multi-Taper Design.
Multi-Taper Design is best described as a series of “micro-tapers” within the overall taper of the rod. This unique, proprietary process allows us to use more material on potential break points and less material everywhere else. To accomplish this, we manufactured a custom rolling table...and it’s the only one in existence today. The result is a catalog of precisely defined actions that strike a perfect balance between durability and performance.
