Pioneers of angling prestige and performance, Loop has been
blazing trails internationally for over three decades and Leland is
proud to be part of their stateside story. Loop was founded by two
fly fishing gurus whose passion for the sport is equaled only by
their gift for innovation. With this unparallelled balance of
tradition and technology, Loop is the realization of a dream to craft
fly fishing tackle as spectacular as the uncharted waters its patrons
revere. Fly Fishing is in Loop's DNA.
Loop knows that setting
the standard for fly fishing technology once takes dedication, but
that revolutionizing the fly fishing industry several times over
takes perfection. With the invention of the large arbor fly reel, the
underhand casting method, and an unquenchable passion for seeking out
premier fly fishing, Loop has accomplished more since 1979 than most
fly tackle companies could ever imagine.

Loop on Loop
In 1979, two young fly fishing enthusiasts from Sweden dreamt
up the idea of Loop with one goal in mind – to make fly fishing a
way of life. Christer Sjöberg and Tony Karpestam, Loop's founders,
desperately wanted to be involved in the developing world of fly
fishing and to explore fly fishing areas previously impossible to
reach, and so Loop was born.
After 30 years of experience,
enthusiasm, and unbreakable will, Loop has evolved into an
international fly fishing company focused on delivering only the best
of Loop's fly fishing line-up to customers who consider fly fishing a
lifestyle. We at Loop have always been pioneers of fly fishing,
in our equipment designs as well as our explorations across the globe
to fly fish every hidden river from Russia to Patagonia.
