Imagine a cold, windy, rainy day in mid-April. You know this is the kind of day to be pike fishing, the nastier the better for these toothy critters. You grab your rain gear load up the boat and head to the lake. Launching into a stiff northeast breeze, you make course for your favorite cove. Dropping the trolling motor into the water while grabbing your favorite big fish rod. You start casting that big pike streamer, not worried about the wind because this rod will turn that big fly over. The fly hits the water, you count down to 7 and start stripping line, strip, strip, strip. Just as you are about to pull the fly up for another cast, the water explodes. You set the hook and start feeding out line, knowing you need to get this fish on the reel or it is game over. Once he is on the reel you relax a little knowing your reel has the finest drag, you let the fish run till you see your backing. Now the real challenge begins reel up, let him run, reel up let him run, you are gaining on him. When you get him to the boat you are both getting tired. You grab the net lead the fish to it and haul him in, saying welcome aboard. You remove the hook, snap a quick photo, release the fish, sit back take a deep breath, gather up your Loop Booster and say to yourself, let's do that again.

Loop Multi Fly Reels: Loop reels have always been known for designing the highest quality fly reels on the market. So when they set out to create a Multi series of “diecast” reels, we knew they had to be built to the same standards as our other great reels. In other words, they needed to be completely waterproof and offer the same Power Matrix Drag System that is incorporated in our other machined reels. The inter-workings of the new Multi Reels are of the highest standards, and when our first prototypes started arriving, we knew we had accomplished our goal. The Loop Multi Fly Reels will last a lifetime and will be offered in a price range that will allow anglers of all walks of life to own a fly reel that we feel proud enough to put the Loop name on.
Loop Opti Runner, which is built on the same principles as its big brother Opti Speedrunner, is the obvious choice for light double-hand rods or slightly heavier single-hand rods.
