The Gary Loomis Story part 1 video. How Gary got into rod building back in the Day. He’s an excellent story teller. A very amusing story. I hope you enjoy the first segment.
“I don’t sell my wife, I don’t sell my kid, I don’t sell my dog and I surely won’t sell you my fishing rod.” – Garry Loomis
After leaving Shimano, Garry is currently working with Temple fork outfitter. The result is, TFO has come out with a series of rods using the North Fork Composites (Gary’s new company) blanks. It will be marketed under the Garry Loomis signature series. The rod will sell for $99.00 with a life time warranty. The handles are color coded according to their action. Gold for medium, and silver for medium light etc.
They had some at the Frank Sargeant show but I have not personally used one. It does sound good on paper though.
