“Alaska Ready” Salmon & Steelhead Package

An Echo Ion XL 9 foot 4-piece rod is matched with a Redington Behemoth reel and a top end Rio Grand weight forward floating line. Very solid gear that will serve you well.
The Echo Ion XL rod is fast action, stout, and powerful enough to do battle with all variety of salmon.
The reel is the formidable Redington Behemoth. The Behemoth is a cast aluminum reel that features a large arbor for quick line pickup and a massive disc drag that will hold up to heavy usage. We line the 6, 7 and 8 weights packages with a Rio Grand weight forward floating line. It works beautifully with the Echo Ion XL and will last for years. On the 9 and 10 weight packages we go with a Rio Big Nasty WF floating fly line that is designed to cast big flies with ease. All packages come with a 9′ tapered salmon steelhead leader.
The rod comes with a Cordura-covered PVC rod case and the reel has a padded case as well. We will spool up the reel so when it arrives you are ready to tie on a fly and go fishing!
Rod and Reel have a Lifetime Guarantee.
