RAVEN FLOAT FISHING RODS

All Raven float rods are specifically designed for float fishing, with features that other float rods simply can’t provide.  Long float rods provide increased float control and cleaner hook sets, which allow you to fish deeper holes and make longer drifts than can be achieved with any standard length rod.  Their parabolic action is designed to absorb the impact of a hard fighting fish on light line.

When selecting a Raven float rod, the following should be considered:
Rod Action is determined by the blank design as well as the modulus of graphite fibre it is made from.
Raven RPX: -NEW- Raven's proud to introduce the most advanced float rod on the planet! Combining 3M, Powerlux, 1000 Matrix Resin, REC Recoil & Titanium Frame SiC Guides, Raven's custom tapers and top quality components are able to deliver the world's lightest, most responsive float rod ever. These rods offer the best all-purpose steelhead fishing experience in this sport ..from float fishing to bottom-bouncing or bait casting off the pier ..they can do it all. Amazingly light and loaded with an unbelievable reserve of power. Available in a Float Rod & Steelheader Models in 13'6" & 11'6" lengths. The baitcasting model offers high performance spiral wrapped ringing. making it the ultimate big water rod.
Raven RV9:
Raven's exclusive RV9 is the new benchmark of excellence. Multi-modulus graphite delivers an ultra-slim blanc with amazing sensitivity and ultra responsive action. Raven Pro staff Reports..." A bit of a phenomenal"... "Your best rod yet"... "wow"
Raven IM9:
Only available in bare blanc ..offering a super stiff, extra crisp action ideal for fishing heavier set-ups with larger hooks and heavier line.  The Raven IM9 float rod, has the power to turn big fish in fast water and delivers extremely fast hook sets, even at long range.
Raven IM8: This float rod delivers crisp, clean action. The Raven IM8 offers versatility in what and where you can fish.  It is soft enough to protect light lines, but powerful enough to handle large floats and fast water.
Raven IM6: This is Ravens original, delivering traditional action. The IM6 is ideally suited for light to medium set-ups.  Its relatively soft, cushioning action protects the hook from ripping out and light lines from breaking.
Raven IM6 Winter Edition: After numerous trials and years of development, the Raven Winter Edition float rod finally resolves ice-up problems on those frosty winter mornings. An extra large Titanium REC Recoil tip top and three oversized REC Recoil titanium snake guides along the tip deflect water off the line and away from the guides - all but eliminating ice-ups. Should any ice build up occur during extreme cold, it can be easily knocked off by flexing the recoil guides. The balance of the rod is ringed with traditional TiCH high frame guides. "Prototype was tested at -20 with virtually no ice-ups"
Raven Matrix MXG: These float rods are a great value with easy handling and a punchy action. The rods deliver good line control and plenty of power when needed.

All Raven float rods are factory tied with quality components. Choice reel seat/handle as listed. In addition, most models are also offered as a bare-blanc for the do-it-yourself rod tier ....please see selection.

G. LOOMIS STEELHEAD/SALMON FLOAT FISHING RODS

G. Loomis offers a variety of float rods designed with tough structure-filled holding water in mind to suit your needs. They are unequalled in maximizing this successful and increasingly popular fishing technique using a float and allowing your bait to reach the correct depth and stay in the strike zone longer. The float rods are available in a range of series as depicted bellow, and in a variety of lengths, action, and power for easier line mending and added hook setting power demanded by today’s Great Lakes Steelheaders and the raw power of their adversaries...

( IMX ) CENTER PIN/ STEELHEAD RODS -New-
Most older version float rods in the market are tip-heavy, making them tiresome to fish so That’s where IMX comes into play. We can make them long, responsive and dramatically lighter, not to mention better balanced. Rather than use a fixed position reel seat, we provide rings so you can position your reel where you want it. The beauty of center pin fishing is that it’s simplistic in the approach and it doesn’t matter if you are a bait angler, lure angler or fly angler. It’s a nice traditional approach to fishing and when the fly waters are too high or even a little off color, the center pin system can not only save the day, but can be a peaceful, pleasurable experience.

IMX 1363-4 CPR ...This Center-Pin rod, at 11' 4" provides a little more backbone for slightly larger rigs and big water. It has more than adequate casting range and enough power to handle larger fish. It helps keep line clear of the water for a drag-free drift that allows you more coverage and positive line and lure control. IMX makes it very sensitive and light and light as a feather. It's one of our best all-around Center-Pin rods and comes in a 4-piece configuration for easier storage and travel.

IMX 1562-2 CPR ... Longer drifts and a more natural presentation is what Center-Pin rods are all about. This 13-footer provides maximum line and lure control along with the ability to move a lot of line when that big steelhead eats your offering at the end of a long drift. It's slightly softer flex helps protect light line, allowing you to fish small baits effectively when the water is low and clear and the fish are extra-spooky. IMX technology helps this rod recover quickly and telegraph everything your rig is doing on the drift. A wonderful revival of an old technique with our latest rod technology.

IMX 1262-2C STFR ... A 10' 6" float rod designed for those anglers that prefer casting reels over spinning reels while fishing small to medium-sized rivers where you don't need to make long casts or super-long drifts. It provides excellent line and float control and because it's a little shorter, allows you to react quickly and make positive hooksets. It will handle lighter jigs and small, less obtrusive floats to fish low water conditions where the fish can get spooky. Thanks to IMX technology it is light, responsive and extremely sensitive. A must-have rod for any float fishing aficionado.

IMX 1363-2C STFR ...Float fishing on big rivers requires a long, more powerful rod. Not only to cover the water, but to keep the line clear of radical mid-river currents and soft spots. At 11' 4", this spinning rod is designed to help you extend drifts, hit the pocket water on the far bank and maintain a drag-free presentation. It will handle slightly larger jigs or bait rigs and can fish up to 12-pound test monofilament for winter and fall fishing. It will handle large steelhead and the smaller salmon species. It balances nicely with a comfortable swing-weight thanks to our proprietary IMX rod technology. You'll notice the difference at the end of a long day on the water... there'll be more smiles and more fish on the bank.

IMX 1262-2S STFR ... A more powerful float rod. You can still cover a lot of water and there's more enough power to set the hook at long-range. Our proprietary IMX technology makes it lighter than you'd expect for a 10' 6" rod with sensitivity to match! It offers a lot of flexibility. You can drift any of the popular float rigs... jigs, shrimp, eggs or artificial bait rigs. Anglers in the upper Midwest will love this rod for fishing the mouths of tributary streams along the shoreline of the Great Lakes. One really versatile spinning rod!

IMX 1363-2S STFR ... Float fishing on big rivers requires a long, more powerful rod. Not only to cover the water, but to keep the line clear of radical mid-river currents and soft spots. At 11' 4", this rod is designed in casting configuration as an option for those that just don't want to use a spinning reel. It's made to help you extend drifts, hit the pocket water on the far bank and maintain a drag-free presentation. It will handle slightly larger jigs or bait rigs and can fish up to 12-pound test monofilament for winter and fall fish. It will handle large steelhead and the smaller salmon species. It balances nicely with a comfortable swing-weight thanks to our proprietary IMX rod technology. You'll notice the difference at the end of a long day on the water... there'll be more smiles and more fish on the bank.

IMX 1264-2S STSDR ... Float fishing on big rivers requires a long, more powerful rod. Not only to cover the water, but to keep the line clear of radical mid-river currents and soft spots. At 11' 4", this rod is designed in casting configuration as an option for those that just don't want to use a spinning reel. It's made to help you extend drifts, hit the pocket water on the far bank and maintain a drag-free presentation. It will handle slightly larger jigs or bait rigs and can fish up to 12-pound test monofilament for winter and fall fish. It will handle large steelhead and the smaller salmon species.

GLX CENTER PIN RODS: High performance center pin float rods, G. Loomis is proud to offer four new models that cover all your float needs, from the great lakes to the pacific northwest. These float rods have very light yet strong tips that say goodbye to "tip sag." While other manufacturers have to add more material to create long rods like these, resulting in heavy sagging tips, we chose to use our proprietary GLX graphite. The rods are finished with extra long cork and composite handles for perfect balance and reel positioning, then matched with the finest high frame titanium recoil guides from Rec for higher sensitivity and reduced weight. The result is the lightest, fastest float rod of this length anywhere. G. Loomis felt rod sock included

STR1352-GLX ... The 11'3" length makes this the perfect float rod for the famous creeks of Pennsylvania and Indiana, and anywhere breaking through brush or fishing tight water is required. This float rod has a soft enough tip to protect light leaders where water clarity requires them, yet maintain the power to turn a fresh run steelhead anywhere.

STR1562-GLX ... This float rod, referred to as the GLX 13' 2 power, is a great all-around rod no matter where you fish. The 13 foot length and high speed make casting floats of any size a dream. Its super light weight balances with almost any pin reel making long days with no arm fatigue possible for the first time.

STR1563-GLX ... Big water, heavy flows and large floats are no match for this 3 power GLX float rod. It's hard to believe a rod this light can handle 6-10 pound leaders and still have the speed to set hooks at distances never thought possible. This rod will also double as a coho/king rod in waters from BC to Oregon.

STR1803-GLX ... 15 foot, fast and light, never before has this option been available. With a 6-10 pound line rating this float rod can master anything from the pier heads of Wisconsin to the Manistee, Thomson or the mighty Niagara. The extra length helps aid in extra long casts of oversized floats, keeping the line off the water and tiring fish in the largest steelhead water in the world.

SALMON & STEELHEAD CLASIC FLOAT RODS: Great Lake Anglers have been steelhead fishing with floats for years and now it's becoming one of the more successful techniques in the Northwest. G. Loomis float rods are unequaled in maximizing this technique, allowing your bait to reach the correct depth and stay in the zone longer, enabling you to cover a drift more efficiently than ever before. The extra length offers the ability to mend your line behind the float for a drag free drift and provides additional Hookseting power to pick up the slack line without lifting your rod and hightailing it a hundred yards down the bank. Available in a spinning and a Skamania style, which lets you use a standard spinning or a float reel.

STFR1601S-SK....At last a float rod to handle the difficult conditions of the Great Lakes Steelheader. Made of IMX material the lightweight nature of this rod provides comfortable fishing from dark to dark without the need to ice your arm at day's end. You'll feel confident fishing even the lightest tippets, but will be able to " put the boots to 'em" to avoid the all too familiar logjam. Guide spacing and size has been meticulously designed to provide for efficient power and minimal freeze-up problems, even for the January die-hard Steelheaders. G. Loomis felt rod sock included

STFR1474-S .......Big rod, big water, big fish. This powerful 12'3" rod can handle up to a 1 oz. jig and has the backbone to fish big egg clusters in the deepest of slots. From the sandy shores of King Camp on the "Nush" in Alaska to the trailer court on the Nehalem River in Oregon, this is the bobber rod for you.

STFR1321S ......This moderate action rod was designed by local jig makers from upper portions of the Green River region, specifically with summer run float fisherman in mind. Ideal for fishing small 1/16 oz jigs with the lightest of balsa wood floats. The length enables you to mend your line, while allowing extended, uninterrupted drifts.

STFR1262S .....Spinning or drifting with a centrepin from the banks of the Umpqua to the north ponds of the Calawah, this rod has it all for summer and winter steelhead. This 10'6" float rod will handle 1/2 oz jigs, bubblegum worms, sandshrimp and small egg clusters. Definitely a rod of choice among seasoned float fisherman.

STFR1363S .....Spinning or drifting with a centrepin, this Olympic Peninsula favorite is the most versatile rod of the series. Silvers and chum don't stand a chance against this moderate/fast action rod. It fishes optimal with 12# test and has plenty of backbone for that once in a lifetime steelhead.

SALMON-(SAR) & STEELHEAD-(STR) SERIES CLASIC RODS: G. Loomis newest Salmon and Steelhead Rods. Available with long fore grips allowing you to put your hand ahead of the reel, increasing leverage and allowing for a smooth, consistent lift of the rod tip without reel movement. The longer length allows you to easily mend your line and land big fish on lighter tippets. From crazy Coho to hard fighting Kings, on large and small streams alike, this is the sweetest of the bunch for river fishing, or when targeting Chinook on your Sitka, Alaska trip. Just make sure you have plenty of line on your center-pin reel. This is the mac daddy when mooching or trolling with heavy weights and long leaders. Rain gear and a nice digital camera make nice accessories when fishing this rod.

STR1141S-IMX ...Since G. Loomis retired the legendary 1562-13', we are pleased to still be able to offer you an IMX but in 9'6" length. The 1141 IMX makes an excellent contender in those tight rivers housing trophy size steelhead! Its a deceptively powerful light-line steelhead float/spinning rod. It has the perfect action to handle light line and a subtle power that tires the fish very quickly. It was designed for the Northwest technique known as boondogging, where boat anglers drift with the current, allowing the bait to maintain a drag-free drift beside the boat but will perform just as well when used at shore streamside drifting a float. This is a soft yet sensitive rod so the bite is detected quickly before the fish can react and drop the bait. G. Loomis felt rod sock included

STR1141S-GL3 -new addition- An medium-priced, light-line steelhead spinning rod that is designed for boondogging or side-drifting. It has the perfect combination of sensitivity and light weight to handle light line and is still powerful enough to catch winter fish as well as summer-runs. The technique requires a soft, yet sensitive rod so the bite is detected quickly before the fish can react and drop the bait. Our proprietary GL3 material makes this rod light enough to fish all day without getting tip-heavy! G. Loomis felt rod sock included

STR1263C-GL3 ...This is a nice blend of power and finesse in an extra-long drift rod. It's designed specifically for the big rivers of British Columbia where you need a little more sensitivity to detect the subtle take of a steelhead. It has a medium power rating that makes it ideal for summer steelhead and the small fall salmon species. GL3 gives you a great combination of strength and sensitivity. Light enough to fish all day, tough enough to last a lifetime!

STR1201S-SK .....A specialty steelhead rod designed to fish the smaller, streams of the Great Lakes region, where you need a quick hook-set to keep the fish clear of brush and logs. The handle grips are reversed from the traditional western rod styles, with a long foregrip and short rear grip. This lets the angler put his hand ahead of the reel. That way he can lift the rod tip quickly without having to lift the reel. In fact, the reel acts as a counterweight.

STR1163S-SK ....This is the most powerful spinning rod in the steelhead lineup. It will allow you to cover any big river in just about any condition either from the bank or from the drift boat, with traditional techniques in mind ..and if need be .. you can drop down to the lighter baits and spinners. Great for silvers, chums, sockeye and even a small Chinook if you can find one. SK designates a special "Skamania" handle configuration which features the long fore-grip and short rear grip to change the balance point on the rod for anglers fishing small, brushy streams and rivers where a quick hook set and more leverage are beneficial. It also provides better fish control while the extra length also allows you to use longer leaders when the water is low and clear.

STR1265S ...This spinning rod was designed for smaller salmon in British Columbia. It works great mated with a centerpin reel as well with float fishing or standard drift gear, and it's a good alternative for down riggers and planer boards in the Great Lakes. A perfect choice for casting spoons and spinner from the shore at prime river mouths.

STR1264-BC ....A specialty steelhead rod designed to fish the streams of the Great Lakes region, where you need a quick hook-set to keep the fish clear of brush and logs. This would be the ultimate winter run rod, bigger floats, lots of split shot followed by the coolest bead pattern in the box. If you're looking for long drag free drifts, this is the stick.

SAR1363-BC ...This steelhead and small salmon rod is reversed from the traditional western style. It has a long fore grip with a short rear grip, allowing you to put your hand ahead of the reel, increasing leverage and allowing for a smooth, consistent lift of the rod tip without reel movement. The longer length allows you to easily mend your line and land big fish on lighter tippets. From crazy Coho to hard fighting Kings, on large and small streams alike, this is the sweetest of the bunch for river fishing.
