The finesse technique of dropshotting is exceptionally effective for the most finicky fish. This rod was initially intended for the dropshot technique, but has expanded to Ned Rigs, Shaky Heads, Finesse Swimbaits, and Neko Rigs. When light tackle and a graceful presentation are the name of the game – our dropshot rods answer the call. The tip of the rod is very light for setting the hook with lightwire hooks and with a couple of quick turns of the reel, the rod takes care of the rest. The carbon fiber grips allow the angler to “see” underwater for the most subtle, finicky bites – leaving nothing to chance.
The original Gary Loomis plug rod, designed to fish Hot Shots, Wiggle Warts and other deep-diving steelhead lures. Built with a really fast taper and a magnum-power butt, this rod works well for light-duty backbouncing as well. But the place it really shines is in cross-over duties on the hunt for stripers and small sturgeon. It casts lures of up to a couple ounces no problem, and will handle up to 4 ounces in a trolling/mooching situation. The long rear grip and trigger reel seat give you total control.
A more powerful version of the Gary Loomis plug rod, designed to fish Hot Shots, Wiggle Warts and other deep-diving steelhead lures. This particular rod was developed for big fish areas like Tillamook Bay in Oregon or the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska, where you need larger plugs and more lead to be effective. Its fast taper and magnum butt work well for backbouncing bait and it is a real workhorse for stripers and small sturgeon. Able to cast lures of up to a couple ounces and handle up to 5 ounces in a trolling/mooching situation, the rod’s long rear grip and trigger reel seat give you total control.
Designed initially as a Hover rod for salmon and steelhead, the HVR 763 has proven to be an ideal bass rod too. This is an exceptional rod for small shallow-running crankbaits and vibrating/wiggle baits like Big O’s or Super Spots. This rod also handles small buzzbaits and stickbaits exceptionally well, and it makes a terrific ultralight saltwater popping rod for sea trout and puppy reds. The HVR 763 loads easily so you can cast light baits accurately, and it excels in clear water where light line and small lures are the keys to success. For the salmon fishery, Hover fishing is the presentation of eggs just off the bottom right in front of the fish’s mouth. The tip needs to be very light to notice a salmon pinch down the presented bait. But the blank must also have power for an angry 40-pound chinook. What makes this rod unique is an incredibly light tip and a powerful backbone all the way throughout.
