Loon Outdoors is proud to present Tools of the Trade Chapter 3 : The Salty Fly. Tools of the Trade is a series of videos featuring Loon Outdoors Ambassadors and their use of Loon’s tools. The videos are made in partnership with Dominic Bruno of Wade Deep Media.
For most of us, choosing the right tools and tackle is the difference between a forgettable day on the water and a great day on the water. But guides—men and women who fish for a living—rely on their tools to make a living and put food on their table. Tools of the Trade is a reminder that Loon’s products are built for professionals who are choosing their tools with higher stakes than your average angler.
“Tools of the Trade is about showcasing our Ambassadors that work on the water and at the vise every day to make a living,” says Hogan Brown, Director of Marketing Loon Outdoors. “I can not think of a person I know who has pioneered a fishery with a fly rod in a more demanding and challenging environment then Capt. Vaughn Podmore. The Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island are a wild, rugged, and nasty place. Choosing to make a living as a guide there and chase fish with a fly rod in that environment requires grit, innovation, and a demand for the best and most reliable gear on the market. There is no better barometer of a products durability, function, and reliability than in the boat and hands of a guide like Capt. Vaughn Podmore. I am incredibly excited for the fly fishing world to see what Vaughn does. He is one of the most humble and innovative guides in the country and has gone about pioneering a fishery and providing amazing salt water fishing to his clients. It’s also crazy that this is close to one of Americas most populated urban settings in one of the North America’s wildest places.”

About Loon Outdoors
Every angler puts a lot of thought into what he or she brings to the water. We believe it is equally important to think about what is left there. That is what fishing with a conscience is all about; ascribing value to the health of the water we fish. We develop our products with these values in mind and make sure they are safe for fish, fisheries, and fishermen, without ever compromising quality or performance. By offering reusable and biodegradable weights and indicators we make sure lost tackle doesn’t harm wildlife. Our floatants, sinkets and cleaners are solvent-free and consist of water-soluble components that perform without polluting the water. And our tying paints, cements and wax are non-toxic and odorless, to keep tying benches free from harmful fumes. We will continue to develop products that help anglers protect the water they love while they are doing what they love. Our products will always allow anglers to fish with.
