ASQUITH - A WORLD OF INNOVATION

Cutting edge technology. Legendary design. Developed and hand finished in Woodland, Washington and rolled in Shimano’s Spiral X production facility in Kumamoto, Japan. Introducing Asquith: the most technologically advanced fly rod in the world.

"Great service and advice"

on 12/2/2019 10:53:13 AM

Review: I have spoken with several people at the Gorge Shop and they are friendly, knowledgeable and willing to take the time to advise you on what you need for your objectives. I have purchased 3 rods as well as other equipment. My Loomis Asquith arrived at my home in less than 48 hours. I live 3,000 miles from Oregon. What else can I say? Of course I will make purchases again from the Gorge fly shop. Re the Asquith. It looks great. I won’t fish it until June 2020. I’m confident it will do the job.

"Wow!!!!"

Review: Talk about a smooth but powerful rod with softness and casting ability when coupled with a line recommended by GFS this is it. Definitely a premium rod to use well worth the $.

"The best fast action 5wt on the planet"

on 6/7/2018 11:48:14 PM

Review: I am not a fast action trout rod guy, but a few days fishing this 5wt has certainly made me see the light. Light, balanced, perfect swing weight and all the power when you need it with delicacy when you don't. I will never stop loving softer rods, been the performance of this rod is unreal!
