The Echo Fly Rod portfolio delivers a superior range of performance, fly rod style, value & unsurpassed warranty service.
Novice to expert - ECHO has your next fly rod. In our opinion, Echo rods represent the best combination of performance, price, warranty and overall quality.
Why buy your Echo from the Caddis Fly Shop? Our shop is less than two hours away from Tim Rajeff’s home, center of the Echo - Airflo world. We hang at Tim’s office, drink questionable coffee, see who can cast better or longer in their backyard pond, the rod torture machine break Echo rods, fish demos, and contribute to new rod designs. In short, we know Echo inside and out, drawing-board to boat.
Performance: We fish Echo fly rods in rivers, estuaries, on the coral flats, and in the deep blue sea. They get the job done in fine form; and are a pleasure to cast and fish.
Echo Rods are durable: Tim Rajeff and his Pro staff make dependability the foundation of every fly rod design; their commitment to quality control is lock-tight.
Availability: The Caddis Fly Shop can deliver an Echo rod to you as quickly as any other online Fly Shop; probably faster. We don’t just list these rods; we keep a big pile of Echo rods in the back room, ready to ship.
Dependable Echo warranty. No one can match the warranty service and fee charged by Echo. Bust a tip in the back of your 4-Runner, ship it to Echo, and within a week, for 35 bucks, you will have a new tip and be back on the water.
Guide Reviews and Video on Echo Fly Rods
ECHO TRIP: This rod is back for 2017 with an 8 piece configuration to make travel a snap; line wts 5, 6, and 8 cover the key fly fishing bases around the world.
BOOST BEACH: at roughly 12 ft, these rods are not switch rods, not spey rods, and not just long single hand rods either. These are genuine long rods designed ground up for the overhead caster who has his or her feet planted on the gravel, sand, jetty rock, or oyster beds. A superior rod from Puget sound to Pyramid lake; from BC to Cape Cod; and from Alaska to Chile, these rods are superior long bomb casting tools.
ECHO E.P.R.: Near as we can determine, this rod replaces the PRIME, a great one piece rod that never sold worth its true merit. The E.P.R. is sesigned with a super fast tip, loads load quickly at close range, plus a super powerful butt that will push line into the wind with more authority than any rod you have had your hands on. Yet. Tim says the action of this rod is STUPID FAST: our translation is CRAZY FAST.
ECHO BAD ASS GLASS: OK. We admit it. We have biases. A few of the Caddis Fly staff are anxious to get our hands on these rods. From estuary chinook, swinging an intruder from the boat, largemouth, stripers, and Pacific albacore, these rods are high on our list to flex.
ECHO Dry: This is the rod for the trout and panfish angler who longs for a true to line weight fly rod. Many modern fly rods are far more powerful than their classification suggests. The DRY is a fly rod in wts from 2 to 6 that is crafted to cast the true line weight. Light and accurate at honest, practical casting and fishing distances is the trademark of this rod series.
ECHO O. H. S. : stands for what? Overhead spey? Overhead switch. Doesn't matter what they were thinking, these are great new rods that you can cast single or two handed owing to the easily attachable 2.50 inch spey or switch rear grip. These rods are longer than usual, at 10 ft 4 inches, but shorter by a tad bit than most true switch rods. Think versatility. Think less strain on your shoulders. Think beach rod, nymph rod, streamer rod, steelhead rod, and estuary rod when the wind is howling onto our casting shoulder.
Echo Carbon rods: upgraded for 2019, well under two hundred bucks gets you an already tested, very fine Echo in fast and moderate actions that will meet the needs of 2 wt to 6 wt fly line fishing – a step up from the entry level Solo single handers.
ECHO BOOST: Pure FAST ACTION at an amazing price. The BOOST is truly an exciting addition to the RAJEFF fly rod line, with an astounding range from lines 2 through 12. One of these very modestly priced BOOST Fresh rods deserves a place in your boat, and in your rod hand. HOLD ON: read those last few sentences again please. Tim Rajeff is a wizard and no loon when he went to work designing these rods. The 2 wt is not the same taper as the 12 wt. The range of rod vs. line wts in this series is astounding, ane each of these is well thought out and specifically engineered. NO JOKE!
Echo Tim Rajeff Spey Rods: A 2017 rejuvenation of Tim Rajeff’s “Signature” Spey Rods delivers enhanced poser in the lower two sections of these spey rods generates spectacular line speeds and tight loops: these are truly a different breed from any of the rest of the Echo family of two hand rods. The Echo TR features a narrowed fieldl of rods including 3 wt and 4 wt microspeys, and covers the heartland of spey country with a 6 wt, 7 wt, and 8 wt two hander. Thanks Tim, these are solid upgrades to the Echo TR team of two handed fly rods for 2017!
Echo Ion XL fly rods: 2015 saw the evolution of the ION accelerated with an upgraded action and the same legendary fly rod toughness; lighter in hand. actions are appropriate by rod weight to throw the light dry, the flats Charlie, the heavy Clouser, the Popper, and the Bugger. If it has fins, there is an ION in the 6 wt to 10 wt class that is perfectly suited to the game.
ECHO SHADOW II fly rods: A superior European Nymphing rod designed by Tim Rajeff and Tim Erickson. Great feel, fast-enough action, light but long, give you the feel and finesse needed for specialized nymph fishing - and we fish these long beauties with a dry fly too.
Echo PRIME: Incredibly impressive one-piece fly rods at 8 ft 10 inches -PRIME rods are saltwater and estuary rods that deliver impressive power, line speed, and casting accuracy. Flats, Blue-waters, Bass, Musky, Stripers, and Peacock in South America? Whoa baby. PRIME offers superior performance you have to experience to believe.
Echo King fly rods: at 13' in 9 or 10 wt line-class, these rods are not for the weak of heart. Tim designed these rods for Alaska and BC Chinook, big sink tips, and seriously heavy flies. If you target big kings in big water, this is your rod.
Echo Instructor: Same materials and tapers as the E3 series, finished off in spectacular white for enhanced visibility, the Instructor fly rods fill a need and are just plain fun to practice with. Will they fish too? You bet they do.
