Echo 3 Two Hander Spey fly rod field review. The Echo fly rod catalog barely scratches the surface. Aside from the usual in-shop or parking lot rod wiggle, we fished the Echo 3 Two handers Ð and we love them Ð period. Considering our experience with the entire line of Echo fly rods, and especially the Switch and Spey fly rods, the Echo 3 Two Handers are light, crisp casting Spey rods that are at allowed each of us, at different casting and skill levels, to fish better, no matter the conditions and lines we used.
At 12Õ 7Ó - The 6 wt. Echo 3 Two Hander Spey rod is our first choice for fishing summer steelhead; then too, this six weight Spey rod is a perfect companion fishing some of our favorite winter steelhead haunts. Though only a 6 wt, this rod will cast modest sink tips and put our big flies as far out into steelhead waters as we wish. Fishing 10 lb. Maxima tippets gives us plenty of pulling power and the rod has the mojo to handle the fish we hook in open water. The Echo 3 Two Hander is a Spey rod that will fish the Sandy and Clackamas, the Deschutes and the Rogue and the John Day.
At 13Õ - The 7 wt Echo 3 Two Hander Spey rod is our favorite all-round pick for all-season steelhead and silvers. We choose the Echo 3 Two Hander seven weight when we might be fishing a long belly line with skated flies in the morning, and changing out for a 15Õ T-14 tip in the afternoon. The Rod is light but carries itself with sufficient authority to face big fish and big water.
At 13Õ 4Ó - The 8 wt Echo 3 Two Hander Spey rod is what we turn to as our Òbig gunÓ for winter steelhead, big sink tips, howling wind, and modest size salmon. This rod will cast with shooting lines in lakes and estuaries and beaches. This rod is up to the challenge Our Delta Spey of winter steelhead, silvers, chums, giant brown trout, and stripers too. You know the drill, a rod can be very adaptable, the angler just needs to be thoughtful about line and leader choices, and learn the capabilities of the rod in question. Point is, this Echo 3 8 wt is one versatile fly rod and merits your consideration and imagination to put it to the test.
