Fly rods from the Italian company, Loomis & Franklin, are developed in close collaboration with Soldarini Fly Tackle and Sandro Soldarini. These are modern carbon fiber rods, which have a convincing price-performance ratio and very solid workmanship. With models for all major styles of fishing, Loomis & Franklin offers a budget-conscious entry into the world of fly fishing or a reliable back-up for advanced anglers - without breaking the bank.The Loomis & Franklin IM12 Nymph single-handed rods provide a cost-effective entry into the exciting world of modern nymph fishing ('Euro Nymphing', 'French Nymphing', 'Czech Nymphing'). The longer, slim blank allows optimized drifts and bite detection in tight line nymphing. The soft tip also assists by reliably transporting even the most gentle takes, down the blank to the index finger. The filigree guide rings are mounted to minimize line sag, ensuring your hook sets are efficient as possible and soft bites are easily detected. Other features of the Nymph rods by Loomis & Franklin include an aluminum reel seat and a thin handle of premium cork. All rods are delivered in a Cordura rod tube with sheath.
The Loomis & Franklin Nymph series is not just a rod with an attractive price, but a rod with very practical performance. If you are looking for a low-cost nymph rod for use on streams and rivers, then we highly recommend the IM12 Nymph. While the 11 ft. long models should only be used for sensitive nymph fishing, the shorter 9.6 ft. rods are also great for fishing traditional fly lines and dry flies.Details:
