Echo Boost Fly Rod
It’s no surprise that streamer fishing has taken this sport to the next level. What used to be an afterthought within the fly fishing realm, pulling streamers is now at the forefront. Thus, many companies are creating rods to meet the demands of the modern streamer angler. One that we have been very fond of lately is the Echo Boost Series. These rods are light, powerful, and won’t break the bank.
The Boost series is a fast action rod, generating high line speeds which help to deliver large streamers accurately, precisely, and deliberately without fatigue. Although this series if offered in a wide array of rod weights, we really like the 6 and 7 weights for streamer applications.
The 6 weight is available in both freshwater and salt water models. They are very similar in action, but the saltwater version has a fighting butt, and a slightly modified handle. These things have become a staff favorite for trout and smallmouth bass.
At $229 for the freshwater versions, and $249 for the saltwater, these rods are a great choice for someone just getting into streamer fishing. Come in and test cast one!
