Small Stream Trout Rod Package
The Echo Carbon XL rod is a smooth casting, medium-fast action rod that is a blast to fish for medium-sized Dolly Varden, rainbow trout, cutthroat trout and grayling. It casts dry flies, nymphs and small streamers with ease and delicacy.
We have paired up this rod with the Lamson Liquid reel. This reel is a large arbor, cast aluminum construction with a very smooth drag. Whether you are fishing for 6 inch brookies or 20 inch rainbows, this reel will have you covered.
To seal the deal, we have lined the reel up with the Rio Avid Trout Floating Fly Line which is perfect for big flies, small flies, long distance casts, or short roll casts.
The package comes completely set up with backing, fly line and leader on the reel and ready to fish. And by purchasing as a package you save over over buying all the components separately. The package ships for free in the U.S.
The rods are all 4-piece travel models and come with a Cordura-covered PVC rod tube.
