Echo Fly Rods are the brainchild of Tim Rajeff. Tim is not only one of the world's very best casters and anglers, but he is also one of the worlds great rod designers and teachers of the sport.
What makes Echo rods special is Tim's dedication to the rods value and accessible performance. His focus on getting people into flyfishing with affordable tackle that works great is at the center of his efforts. Tim has found a way to make amazing fly rods that start at about $100. That you don't have to be Tim to really cast these rods beautifully is a credit to his hard work – these rods really perform!
The Echo product line is comprehensive with models ranging from $99 to $500. There are some real standouts here that few other rod companies can boast.
The Echo Solo, Carbon and Edge single handers are the benchmark of value priced performance. They are super easy to load and cast, and are also incredibly durable and come with really nice cases.
Echo makes hands down the best value priced spey and switch rods on the planet. Not only are there affordable switch rods down to a three weight, but the Echo 3 series of switch and spey rods at $550 are not just a great bargain, but are also among the worlds very best at any price.
New this year also is the Echo Glass series of light freshwater rods. These are not only lovely, but affordably priced at $199. Everyone should have a fiberglass rod in their creek quiver.
Another item that has come from Tim is the wonderful MPR. MPR stands for Micro Practice Rod, and it is a two piece four foot rod with a tapered yarn line that is not only a great teaching tool, but also terrific fun. 15 Minutes with the MPR can tune up anyone's casting.
When you look at the value Echo delivers it is tough to find anything that compares. Check one out, and see what you think.
