ECHO SR Switch Rod - Complete Setups



3 SETUP OPTIONS

We want to make choosing the right tool for the job easy for you. Each of these systems offers distinct advantages. Read the description of each and decide which setup will give you the ultimate edge on your quarry!
1. UTILITY SETUP - This outfit is for the angler that wants the most diverse line system that will allow them to do a little bit of everything. It features the new RIO In-touch Switch CHUCKER fly line. It is a one piece line with a shooting head style, but the long back taper to the head makes it great for all around fishing. You can overhead cast, mend, and even indicator fish at reasonable distance. While nymphing, once you get out there beyond 30' or so it doesn't mend great, however this is the best "all around line". This is our most popular setup. It doesn't quite offer the nymphing range of the INDICATOR PRIORITY setup, or raw distance of the SWING PRIORITY setup but is a great choice.

UTILITY SETUP Includes:
  • ECHO SR Switch Rod
  • ECHO ION Fly Reel (sized to fit and let us know in the notes if Right Hand Retrieve)
  • RIO In-Touch Switch CHUCKER Fly Line
  • RIO 10' MOW Sink Tip
  • RIO Backing Installed

2. SWING PRIORITY SETUP - This outfit is for the angler that simply wants a compact spey rod and likes to shoot line. This is a fun setup! We set this rod up with a RIO Skagit MAX Short Shooting Head and a RIO SLICK SHOOTER Running line. Mono running line adds 20% to your distance potential and makes long casts easier. It shoots big weighted flies with ease and is easy to cast for beginners and advanced anglers alike. This is a steelheader's dream! This line system shoots great and will make even the toughest spots seem easy. With the compact nature of an 11'6" two handed rod you'll be swinging flies when most other guys are trying to get their fly out of the tree behind them. It shoots line much better than the UTILITY SETUP.

OPST Commando Pure Skagit can be substituted here just let us know in the notes.

SWING PRIORITY SETUP Includes:
  • ECHO SR Switch Rod
  • ECHO ION Fly Reel (sized to fi and let us know in the notes if Right Hand Retrievet)
  • RIO Skagit MAX Short Shooting Head (sized to fit rod weight)
  • OPST Running Line
  • RIO 10' MOW Sink Tip
  • RIO Backing Installed

3. INDICATOR PRIORITY SETUP - This outfit is for the angler that wants to indicator fish almost all the time, but may want to spey fish with some very small lightweight flies. It is spooled up with a RIO In-Touch Switch Line which is believed to be the best indicator line for nymph fishing on switch rods. We include a RIO Spey Versileader to give you the option of tossing lightweight flies, but the priority here is drifting indicators.

INDICATOR PRIORITY SETUP Includes:

  • ECHO SR Switch Rod
  • ECHO ION Fly Reel (sized to fit and let us know in the notes if Right Hand Retrieve)
  • RIO In-Touch Switch Line
  • RIO Spey Versileader 5.6 ips
  • RIO Backing Installed

Echo SR, Ion Reel November 26, 2013
Reviewer: Jon Bednarick from Cadillac, MI United States  
This is my second rod purchased from Reds in 8 months.  The Echo really does cast a ton of line or just the right amount in tight spots.  Steelhead or Browns and Bows on streamers are what this setup is all about.  This rod will surely make a swinger out of anyone.  Came right to my door ready to fish.  Reds videos are the best.  If there is an aspect of fly fishing you want to get into, Reds probably has a video that will help make it easy getting the perfect set up for  you. Thanks again Reds and thanks for the great, informative videos Joe.

Perfect on the Duc January 19, 2012
Reviewer: Brian from Aberdeen, WA United States  
This rod is awesome, I bought this for fishing the Sol Duc River on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State.  I like the 8 weight because the fish  here are pretty frickin' big! During the winter we routinely hook (not always land) fish in the mid to upper teens.  This rod throws big flies under the brushy spots like a champ with either an indicator or a spey line.  My favorite river is the Duc and the Rio Scandi Short does an awesome job both swinging and nymphing around the brush and rocks
