Guide Reviews and Video on Echo Fly RodsECHO 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.
: step up from the BASE, add versatility in line weights and components, you get a wonderful starter or back up rod for a few bucks over the hundred mark.Echo Solo COMPLETE OUTFITS:
Excellent value, at under two hundred bucks, you get rod, reel, line, backing, and a tapered leader in a rod/reel carrying case. Really? Absolutely true. New offering for 2013.Echo Carbon
rods: upgraded for 2013, 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 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 Small Water GLASS
: many of us grew up fishing glass fly rods, and Tim Rajeff has given us a fresh opportunity to relish the best of the glass fly rod era. These light fly rods in line weights 2 through 5 are pure fun to fish on small waters and make little fish seem big. Slow actions and deep full flex that reminds us of bamboo rods in three piece configurations.ECHO Big Water GLASS
: Three fly rods in this series are from 8.5 ft to 9.0 ft; featuring a firmer butt that will flex but hold the ine when casting larger flies and fighting larger fish. These big water glass rods are at home in sprawling rivers, big dry flies, and even multiple fly indicator and hopper dropper rigs of various configurations. Line weights 4, 5 and 6 populate this team.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!Dec Hogan II Series
Spey Rods: Dec has gone back to the shop and re-designed his rods that have earned international renown. Line classes from 6 wt to 8 wt with the innovation of a spectacular 6.5 wt, mid-class rod – Dec’s rods just stepped up from excellence to, what? To an even more angler friendly Spey rod.GLASS Two Hand & Switch Series
TIM RAJEFF grew up fishing glass rods, and he knows the right stuff to produce long glass rods that cast and fish well. He delivered on the promise in this new for 2015 series. Light SWITCH rods right-powered for trout fishing - and SPEY rods inline class 6 to 8 that are great choices for pure two hand fishing fun.Echo Classic Two Hander Spey Rods:
Don’t let the low price distract: this rod is better than the decade-old Classic, this 2013 edition of the Classic is absolutely the BEST value-priced Spey rod on the market today. Same price as the Classic of a decade ago, with better graphite, resins and taper-based casting, you appreciate this Classic as your first two hander, your back-up, or another option in your quiver of long-rods.Echo Switch
fly rods: Absolutely beautiful rod shafts, and already time-tested rod actions, this offering of switch rods from 3 to 8 wt, admirably covers the transition from single to two-hand fishing.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 Edge
fly rods: A solid fly rod for anglers of all skill levels, offered in Fresh and Saltwater finish options.Echo 3 Saltwater and Freshwater
fly rods: This E3 Series is at the top of the Echo food chain, offering the lightest, fastest actions and finest fittings. In our opinion, Echo 3 rods are VERY CLOSE to higher-end rods offered by the “BIG NAME” rod manufacturers, at a significantly lower price point, with better warranty service.
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 3 Switch and Spey
fly rods: a superb long-rod series. ECHO 3 Spey and Switch rods are built from graphite we think is equal to what would be called GLX; Tim Rajeff designed these mandrels to produce these rods that always deliver amazing casting and fishing performance.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.Echo Gecko
youth fly rods: Children love this Echo fly rod, with appealing colors and not-to-worry durability, it is a perfectly good casting & fishing fly rod for the youngest fly angler.Echo Micro
Practice fly rods: not simply a toy - this casting simulator will help you improve your casting skills if you dedicate some time to this innovative mini-rod.Echo PIN
Echo’s first entry into the Centerpin world, this is a great four-piece rod for steelhead anglers who are obsessed with the dead-drift. Our Caddis Fly Staff are relatively new to Centerpin lingo and techniques, but we know Echo rods and steelhead, so we are offering this new rod with confidence.
