There are few fish with a more diverse menu of preferred foods or living environments than trout. Sometimes, they require lightly presenting speck-sized midges to get a grab. At other times, you may find yourself tossing heavily weighted leeches on sinking lines. Designing a series optimized for every trout situation just isn’t going to happen. We can, however, make a rod well-suited to cast flies and lines of various sizes and densities in that “sweet spot” distance of 30-50 feet.
To protect light tippets, we produced a fast action design with an ultra-sensitive tip section in the lighter weights. 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. Unlike our other series of rods, 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.
