    The Adventure Continues! The photographers Yngve Ask

    and Tim Pask are constantly traveling the world in search

    of the wild-side of life. Their goal is to digitally capture

    and document the adventures and then make the media

    available on their searchable archival web based system.

  • It is always exciting to read and dream about ad-ventures in distant places. It can be about The Caribbeans and encounters with big, strong, brutal salty fishes, the Kola peninsula and its big trout, Alaska or why not to Patagonia and the newly discovered Jurassic Lake. Besides Loops own camps, Jurassic Lake, Las Buitreras and San Ramon, in Patagonia we will, in the near future, offer you to come along on a set of Hosted Trips. These are trips where someone from Loop will accompany you as your tour guide and instructor.

    FLy FIShING GEArWherever one wants to go, whatever one wants to fish, special tools with special abilities will be needed. Tools that deliver. At Loop we constantly aim to develop better and more functional tools, for all kinds of fly-fishing. Form follows function. Our new catalogue is packed with more of this than ever before. In it you will find the Zpey Grip, a spectacular inven-tion, new Optimised Adapted Line System for both underhand and spey casting, the Pike Booster and more. Tools that will make fly-fishing both easier and more fun.

    Our new team of developers consists of leading fly-fishers from around the world. They represent all types of fly-fishing, which will be visualised in better and more specialised tools, with ever-higher quality and performance.

    FLy FIShING EDuCATIONFor those of you who want to learn more about fly-fishing, whether youve come a bit on the way or a total beginner, we offer loads of courses with our Loop instructors. This year we have schools nearly everywhere. England, Ire-land, Scotland, Germany, Austria, Norway, Finland, Denmark, USA, Canada, the list goes on. For more information about this please visit our website.

    With hopes that youll find your adventure and something new and interesting in our new catalogue.

    Christer Sjberg

    NB. Dont forget to keep an eye on our website where we constantly will present cool new products, hosted trips and more.

    The Adventure is around the corner

  • FlyReels FlyReels FlyReelsOur reels have always been leading the way.

    They still do.

    Welcome to the future. It begins here.

    For more than twenty years we have been producing large

    arbour reels. With the new Opti Fly Reel we enter a new e

    ra.

    This reel has an even larger arbour and a narrower, uniqu

    ely

    V-shaped spool. This means a faster retrieve and less coils

    on your line. When you retrieve the line it automatically

    falls

    into place, without any help from your fingers. Of course

    the

    Opti reel has our silky smooth and powerful Power Matrix

    drag

    system. The drag system, which is totally waterproof, saltw

    ater

    resistant and with the smoothest available start-up, is also

    used in

    the Evotec G3 and Classic-reels.

  • MEGALOOP SPEEDRUNNER RUNNER DRYFLY CREEK

    OPTiOpti Speedrunner and Opti Megaloop are big as bicycle wheels and spin just as fine. The large arbour allows for a high-speed retrieve when battling high-speed fish. The narrow width of the V-shaped spool makes the line fall into place during the retrieve. Other finesses are the bevelled spool and the ergonomic handle that makes the line slide off without getting tangled.

    Opti reels come in sizes from Creek to Megaloop. Each model is optimised for a specific fishing. Creek and DryFly, with a silksmooth drag that handles the thinnest leader. Speedrunner, with an inset handle and extra diameter, for speedsters. Megaloop comes with dual braking plates and a super sturdy construction so as to tackle the really big fish. The Opti reel will be your best, and most beautiful, friend for life.

    G3EvotecThis powerhouse of a reel contains the strongest and smoothest braking system that you will ever likely get your hands on. The G3 is also equipped with an ergonomically designed, non-friction winding handle, which prevents the fly line from getting entangled on it. The counter-weight features an o-ring for attaching the tippet when not fishing. This reel is your best bet when the fish of a lifetime takes your fly. That we guarantee.

    ClassicBeneath the stunning looks of the new Classic fly reel is the ultra-modern Power Matrix Drag System. This monstrous braking system will subdue the strongest of fish in the harshest conditions. The completely waterproof drag system benefits from a pronounced click that signals fish on through your ears into your every vein. Fishing for all senses.

    The Classic is completely corrosion resistant and benefits from a new ergonomic handle design with integrated leader retainer on the counterbalance. Available in either left or right-hand wind, each reel is individually numbered and presented in a handcrafted leather case. With its old world classic looks and ultra-modern braking power, you will get the best of both worlds. We call it tradition with an attitude.
