Offered in 11 different models with specific actions for every salmon fishing technique, G. Loomis introduces the newly-designed E6X Salmon rods. Being showcased at this week’s Pacific Northwest Sportsmen’s Show in Portland, Ore., a limited number of the new rods will be available from select fishing tackle retailers exhibiting at the show.

From back-bouncing with heavy lead in big water, mooching herring and anchovies, or pulling plugs, “the E6X rods are offered in the lengths, powers and action for all the popular lure and bait presentations for salmon fishing in both fresh and saltwater, including tributaries of the Great Lakes,” said Dave Brinkerhoff with G. Loomis’ product design team. “Through our Multi-Taper Technology, in designing the rods we are able to focus on line control and action accuracy, rod balance and blank construction. We can keep them light, but with the power needed when hooked into big fish and fishing big waters.”

The 11-rod series includes one-piece 8-foot back-bounce and 8’2” hot shot rods, two-piece 8’6” and 9’ hot shot rods, and two-piece 9’, 9’9” and 10’6” trolling/plug rods. There’s also a 10’6” ‘BC’ handle rod specifically for mooching. All the rods have a sleek, buff blank finish, and feature graphite rear and front grips.

“As with all our E6X rods, anglers are offered the expected performance from G. Loomis, and at a comfortable price,” noted Brinkerhoff. “With our company roots in the Pacific Northwest, that extra passion for salmon – and steelhead – fishing shows in these rods.”

As with all G. Loomis rods, the newly-designed E6X Salmon rods are handcrafted in Woodland, Washington USA, and are backed by G. Loomis’ limited lifetime warranty and ‘Xpeditor’ service. For more information, visit, call 800/GLoomis, or stop by your nearest G. Loomis tackle dealer.
