A limited number of the new G. Loomis/Shimano rods along with Shimano reels will be showcased by Fishing Tackle Unlimited this Saturday at the Inshore Expo in Houston.
The first production Asquith fly rods just shipped this week to select tackle shops nationwide from G. Loomis’ Woodland, Washington, manufacturing facility. The product is a joint venture featuring Shimano technology and G. Loomis design and performance expertise and will be on hand at FTU.
Also at the FTU event on the reel side, Shimano will be featuring its new Stradic CI4+ spinning reels. Also, Justin Rackley, of LakeForkGuy YouTube fame, will be at the Shimano display to talk fishing.
