TFO Gary Loomis Signature Casting Rods

As airlines add more luggage restrictions, multi-piece spinning and casting rods will become the norm for the traveling angler. Gary's Signature Series Travel Rods have the same power and performance you have come to expect from his award-winning one-piece rods...in a three-piece design! Take them anywhere. These rods will easily fit into back seats and overhead storage bins, leaving no excuse not to take your fishing gear on your next excursion. We think you will even forget that you are fishing a multi-piece rod—until you throw it in the back seat of your pickup.

Signature Series travel rods feature our Color ID system, chromium-impregnated stainless steel guides with SiC inserts, and premium cork.

Almost 3 decades ago, Gary Loomis founded G.Loomis and quickly attracted the attention and admiration of the world’s most discerning anglers. Throughout the evolution of carbon fiber rod making Gary distinguished himself as the Master. Using leading edge technology and engineering, he designed tools that have defined High Performance in rods.

After selling G.Loomis, in 1997, Gary dedicated his efforts to protecting & rehabilitating the fisheries of the Pacific Northwest. His devotion to the fishery helped establish Fish First, where he serves as President, and the coastal Conservation Association Pacific Northwest, where he serves as the Chairman for Washington State.

Although Gary is no longer affiliated with G.Loomis, his desire to “build the best rods available” remains. He has agreed to share his unparalleled design skills and understanding of modern technology and materials with Temple Fork Outfitters to develop a new generation of Affordable High Performance rods. Gary is fully committed to increasing participation in fishing and protecting our natural resources for future generations. He believes that TFO’s Affordable – High Performance approach forms a great base for this growth. Working with TFO allows me to put high-quality rods in the hands of potential anglers that otherwise would not have access to this king of gear. It is these new anglers that, through their enjoyment of the sport, will help us protect our threatened fishers. ~ Gary Loomis
