G Loomis ShoreStalker Series Fly Rod

G Loomis ShoreStalker Series Fly Rod  at Front Range Anglers

Veteran warm-water fly fisher, Dave Whitlock teamed up with our designers to develop a special series of rods for those warm-water critters that prefer to hide in the thick stuff where they can burst from the cover, even darkness to ambush their prey. Originally they were meant for freshwater species like bass, pike and panfish, but the saltwater crowd quickly discovered them to be an effective tool for snook, redfish and other shallow-water species. These are rods meant for fishing the shoreline, the edges… abrupt weed lines, rocky points, submerged trees and the mangroves. They are specialty rods designed to make short, aggressive casts where accuracy is far more critical than distance. They load easily at twenty-feet, yet have enough power and accuracy to punch a streamer, 60-feet into a small opening in the brush. They are shorter than your normal fly rod with fast tapers to help you keep your loops tight and line trajectory low to clear shoreline cover and overhanging limbs. They are subtle yet extremely powerful with sufficient strength to keep a big largemouth away from the pads or a snook out of the thick stuff. Not a lot of false casts are necessary with these beauties. Just get your range right and drop your bug on the spot. Then pick it up with one quick back-cast and do it again. There are five, 4-piece models, ranging from 5- to 9-weights, varying in length depending on the line size and target species. Each comes in a soft, protective rod sock and hard case for storage and travel.

 

 

FRA's Review of the Gloomis Shore Stalker Fly Rod:
"The 8'6" 6wt is the rod to pull out of your quiver to target front range Bass and pike, and then hop in your drift boat and throw big streamers at the bank to hungry browns.  This rod is not overly stiff and powerful like some of the other "warm water" rods so you can actually fish it.  Loomis has created a rod that blends power for lifting with presentation so in hand this rod feels like a strong 6wt." ~FRA
