Echo Rod / Line Weight Recommendations


Whether you're using them with one hand or two, spey casting or overhead casting, Switch Rods have become an important tool for people who trout and steelhead fish. Great Lakes fly anglers love the light weight and shorter length. Pacific Northwest anglers like the ability to fish in tight places with two hands. With a crisp action and modest power the ECHO SR rods maintain a load during a Spey cast better than other rods that have an extra fast action. In models ranging from 10'6" to 10'10" they are a perfect two hand length but are not beyond chucking with one hand when needed. The family of SR rods will make you smile just putting them together.

Fast actions and versatile sizes make the SR series the best stick for two-handed bug slingers that prefer a shorter rod. The #3-5 models are ideal for trout (and smallmouth!) everywhere, while the #6-8 handle larger anadromous fish with authority. Slick cosmetics and bombproof componentry help solidify the SR as the fishiest switch rod on the water.

"Echo SR 61010 & Rio Scandi body 375 grain"

on 5/9/2017 6:14:36 PM

Review (Tell us Why?: This rod got an immediate workout overhead casting at Pyramid Lake. I liked it a lot for this job. Got to spey cast with a 390 skagit and the 375 Rio Scandi. This rod has been reviewed as tippy and more suited to indi and single hand overhead casting than it's competition. I found this not the case. It will cast sustained anchor and scandi casts with no problem. I did not find an adjustment to my casting stroke was needed. The Rio Scandi body is one of the best switch rod lines going and this ro... More details

"Fun Rod"

on 1/25/2015 12:06:19 PM

Review (Tell us Why?: Love this rod. Spey casts, especially a snake roll, effortlessly 70+ feet with a Wulff Ambush 5 wt and a 10 ft tip (versaleader or sink tip 30-80 grains). YMMV. Even casts a regular 5 wt trout line overhead OK. A nice alternative to a 5 wt single hand, especially for swinging streamers and nymphing.
