Loomis and Franklin Specialist Competition Boat rods long cast IM12
The Loomis & Franklin IM12 Stillwater Competition series was designed from years of experience of fly fishermen dedicated to demanding Stillwater fisheries. When fishing from the shore at large lakes and dams, there are often enormous casting distances to reach the cautious, larger fish.
Therefore, the Stillwater Competition rods were made significantly longer than conventional fly rods. Thanks to their length, you can, on the one hand, move your line further from the ground and, on the other hand, keep larger amounts of line in the air. Ideally, you combine these rods with shooting heads or heavy weight-forward lines to exploit the full potential of the powerful blanks.
A n request of the European market Sandro Soldarini has developed the STILLWATER COMPETITION, a line of fly fishing rods specifically designed for lake fishing. These rods will allow you to easily make long roll cast, a fundamental casting technique in all those situations where you have little space behind you to.
