Echo O.H.S. Fly Rod
ECHO O.H.S. (One hand spey) fly rods are the true tweener rod between single hand and switch rod.
ECHO 4 piece O.H.S. fly rods, NEW FOR 2017:offer the best intersection at 10 ft 4 inches of the single hand and two hand rod: a slightly longer rod with a removable butt.
Three O.H.S. line weights from 6 wt to 8 wt will serve you well as a an angler seeking large trout, steelhead, salmon, stripers, blues, and the like. From the Rivers of the Great Lakes to BC, San Francisco bay to Cape cod, the ECHO O.H.S. is a superior rod to fish.
6 and 7 wt O.H.S. fly rods: These two rods are perfect for big trout, multi fly nymphing, and modest size steelhead. Another place where these rods deliver is on the beaches of estuaries and lakes. Pyramid Lake cutthroat? Absolutely yes you can.
8 wt O.H.S. fly rods: We think these are in the zone for winter steelhead, and many modest sized salmon, from chum and silvers up to king salmon in the twenty pound class. Stripers off the jetties and beaches? Heck yes indeed you can.
Versatility is the name of the game here: O.H.S. fly rods should best be felt in hand on the water to be fully appreciate their light weight and accuracy laying a little fly in the feeding lane.
A two and a half inch rear Spey butt is removable when you want it, which in our opinion is most of the time.
We tend to have very few warranty issues with ECHO fly rods, but when we do, the service turn around time is minimum and the overall service is unsurpassed.
Blank: glossy dark emerald like green.
Thread color and accent colors: these seem translucent with gold tip edging.
Guides: Easy flow stripper guide is SIC, the guides are stainless of course.
Reel seat: anodized aluminum does not require maintenance.
Final thought: these are not switch rods, they are genuine one hand fly rods on the long end of the scale, but you can also spey cast these very nicely.
