Mooching is a style of fishing done from a boat by slowly trolling or drifting with the wind or tide. You need a rod that is powerful to fight big fish, yet soft enough to fish the bait properly. The technique works in tidewater as well as the open ocean.
G. Loomis Salmon Rods feature a moderate action with a soft, yet sneaky powerful flex so the fish will hang on to the bait a little longer at which point you set the hook and hang on a lot longer! Our standard mooching rod is 9-feet long, but when you start putting out multiple rigs to make your run, longer rods allow you to spread out your lines and avoid tangles. You're going to get them anyway, the fish will see to that, but at least you'll feel more confident if you can keep things spread out a bit before the chaos starts.
Sensitivity isn't a priority for mooching since you use a rod holder, but G. Loomis Salmon Rods can be used for drift fishing in the rivers where sensitivity is important and especially when you need more power for deep, swift current and big fish. GL2 material allows us to make them light yet durable, a real bonus when things get hectic and you start yanking on some of those feisty silvers or a big king.
