G. Loomis EastFork

 
 
 
 
Product Name
 
 
The G. Loomis EastFork is a fast action rod that actually has been specially designed to be forgiving if your casting is on the sloppy side or not perfect and tight, something not usually found in many fast action rods.
 
Like your traditional fast action rod the EastFork, with its quick powerful taper and slim design made for longer yet tight casts with a tremendous amount of line speed even when facing into the wind. Think of a tight whip where the rod bends quickly and sharply out towards the tip instead of through the entire rod blank. 
 
This results in a rod built more for precise tight casts yet it may come up a little short if you are trying for real long distances on big bodies of water, so keep that in mind.
 
This lends itself well to big streams of fast moving water or lakes where the fish are not easily spooked but still require casts placed in just the right spot. If you plan to stalk fish on quiet little creeks and need big looping roll casts with minimal splash this may not be your ideal rod.
 
These rods are a vibrant "cabernet red" in color with a traditionally shaped cork handle that is matched up with an nice looking anodized bronze reel seat complete with the G. Loomis "bone" fish logo emblazoned into the metal.
 
For a good all around five weight trout rod our favorite pick is model FR1085-4 which comes in a nine foot, four piece model in a mid price range. This may not be the best pick as your first rod but if you are looking for a second or third rod to better match situations the EastFork is a good choice.
