Salmon Junkies are very proud to announce we have joined forces with leading company of premium Fly rods – The world famous Loomis rod company from Washington

This really is a wonderful opportunity for us to be associated with a company that is revered the world over for the quality, casting excellence and sheer fishability of their fly rods. And also, it’s a chance for us to be with like-minded Salmon and Steelheads Junkies, who are keen to push the barriers of design and performance. We are so thrilled to be part of a team of anglers I admire so much.

Rod business has changed a great deal over the years with increasing emphasis put on material types and component options, but the actual manufacturing process for many rod builders continues to be a very manual process, one that still involves some good old fashioned craftsmanship. There are not many rod manufacturers that still build all of their rods here domestically and premium rod brand G.Loomis is one of those companies on the short list that is still designing and manufacturing rods stateside.

Loomis was instrumental in starting the Spey rod revolution in US. and have been solidly at the forefront of rod design ever since. Using their extensive experience and expertise, they’ve managed to develop series of spey rods to equip casters of any style. It certainly helps that they got several World Champion Spey casters on staff… The Voodoo man himself Mr. Steve Rajeff
