Gary Loomis, founder of G. Loomis, has renewed his contract for three years with the company he once owned.
His new contract puts him in the promotional spotlight as he works consumer shows, with dealers on factory visits, and with the media. He plans to maintain an office at the factory.
"Gary just isn't ready to retire," said G.Loomis executive director and CEO Bruce Holt. "He wants to be - and we want him to be - very much a part of our team."
From the August edition of Fishing Tackle Retailer -Keith Jackson. :bowdown: :cheers:

Among other things, Gary had the idea for "Fish First", perhaps the most successful group in the nation at rebuilding premium hatchery returns. The North Fork Lewis and its world class summer steelhead runs owe much to Gary Loomis, and an equal amount to the real day-to-day genius behind "Fish First", Jack Kaeding.

Gary has done it all. Premier businessman, premier conservationist. We all owe him a vote of thanks.

I was fortunate enough to see Gary doing his thing at the Fish First banquet this year and he certainly seem to be a top notch guy.
I could have passed him on the street 100 times on the street and never realized who he was. :wink:
