American Legacy Fishing Company
NEWS FLASH – November 9, 2008
I have always wanted to share some of the G. Loomis fishing stories with you, but it has been difficult to find them, and when we did, difficult to transpose them to paper. But, persistence has finally paid off. Staring with this issue of our newsletter we will include a story from a G. Loomis customer or one of G. Loomis’ management team about their fishing experience. These fish stories really ring true; they tell what a great experience it is.
We have stories from Bruce Holt (G. Loomis General Manager), legendary basketball coach Bobby Knight, Fishing Hall of Fame members Jerry McKinnis, Billy and Bobby Murray, and world famous golfer Johnny Miller.
(at least, in our opinion)…
So, how are we catching them? Here’s the scoop:
On the other end of the barrel swivel we tie on 3 ft of 20# 100% fluorocarbon line and on the end of that a 6/0 Gamakatsu (or similar) live bait hook.
Now, the trick: On to the 6/0 hook use a Storm Wildeye or similar 6″ long plastic shad flutter tail (some call it a button tail) in WHITE. Once rigged up get up to the side of the heaviest turbulence water right below the dam and cast in to the most turbulent, rushing part of the water. Keep your line tight, let the sinker work toward bottom, and then work the rig back to the boat. And hold on…big stripers are on the bottom, small stripers tend to be on the top. Our Pros have had the greatest success after the sun is up in the mornings up until about noon. Then the bite seems to disappear.
So, here’s an idea. Instead of guessing what that fisherman or fisherwoman would really like, consider one of American Legacy Fishing’s Gift Cards. They come in denominations of $50.00 to $1,000.00 and are easily purchased on our web site. No pushing, no shoving, no traffic jams, no hassle. You can even choose the design.

Once again we remind you: As of January 1, 2009 G. Loomis will increase prices between 5% to 15% on almost all rods, blanks, and accessory items. Currently our inventory is very strong, so now is the time to buy. If you are in the UK, Europe, or Australia I know the currency fluctuations have made Loomis more expensive, but please keep in mind our Very Low Shipping Costs, the Free Jacket Offer, and the impending price increase. All combined, it’s a very compelling reason to buy now.
