ECHO River Glass Fly Fishing Rod

Line Weight

Collections: New for 2019, Single-hand Fly Rods

Category: #GlassIsNotDead, 2019

Type: Unknown Type

Anglers fish glass for a long list of reasons. At the top of the list are more easily feeling the rod load and the superior shock absorption of glass fibres. For 2019, we compiled our years of fibreglass experience in to the new River Glass series, offered in lengths to cover the widest variety of freshwater fisheries. The rods are available in either Glacier or Amber colour to help add a bit more smile that wasn’t there when you fished your stiffer graphite rods.

    Care & Handling

    We would like your ECHO experience to be a good one and we ask that you take care of your equipment with the following regular maintenance:

    Wash all components with warm freshwater after each days use in saltwater. Pay extra attention to the space where the guides meet the blank and the metal parts of the reel seat. Try to keep sand and dirt out of the ferrules. Occasionally use a few drops of any reel oil or grease on the reel seat threads to keep it operating smoothly. Paraffin wax can also be used on the ferrules if needed to ensure a proper fit.

    Do not use tape on your ferrules. If you do we'll come steal all your bacon.
