The Echo Trout Series is designed for casting flies and lines of various sizes and densities in that “sweet spot” distance of 30-50 feet. This fast action design provides an ultra-sensitive tip section in the lighter weights to protect light tippets. To help carry heavier sinking lines and meatier flies, the 6wt’s tip section has been strengthened to carry the load and lift more line when needed. Each size ECHO Trout model has a unique action suited to that rod’s typical application. All models are light in the hand to minimize fatigue and increase casting efficiency.
The unique handle shape allows the angler to use the thumb on top grip, the finger on top, or extended finger grip. An anodized aluminum reel seat lessens the effort needed to maintain your gear and a blue sliding hood matches the thread wraps. They feature a semi-gloss finish to decrease “line stick” and are all four piece to make it easier to travel. Each includes a fabric-covered hard case. To cover every trout fishing situation, the rods come in a 7’10”#4, 9’0”#4, 9’0”#5, 9’0”#6, and 9’6”#6. For the 9’6” 6wt, Echo corroborated with top guides to dial-in the ideal length, power and action for an indicator nymphing rod.
