ECHO TR2 Spey Rod - Complete Spey Setups



3 Spey Line Options for Echo TR2 Spey Rods

1. SKAGIT UTILITY SETUP
- This is the most popular setup and found on 80% of the spey rods out there, and the best choice for anyone just breaking into the spey game. We'll match the rod you choose with the correct Skagit Shooting Head. It is a great choice because of its versatility and favored by anglers fishing in in compact situations requiring a short head, large flies, and sink tips. The Skagit Shooting Head will also throw small flies, a floating tip (sold separately), and perform under the widest variety of conditions. This system requires use of RIO MOW tips. 5 weight spey rods use LIGHT MOW Tips, 6-7 use MEDIUM MOW TIPS, and 8-9 weight rods use HEAVY MOW Tips

SKAGIT UTILITY SETUP Includes:
  • Echo TR2 Spey Rod
  • Echo ION 10/12
  • Airflo G2 Skagit Shooting Head (sized to fit the rod you choose)
  • OPST Lazar or Airflo Superdri Ridge Running line Please specify in the notes or it is our choice
  • Airflo Flo Sink Tip (If you had to choose one sink tip, this would be it)
  • Backing Installed

2. WINTER PRIORITY SETUP - Anglers targeting Winter Steelhead, Chinook, or rivers with fast surface currents should consider the WINTER PRIORITY SETUP. This rod/reel will come RTF with a Skagit Intermediate Shooting Head. This line systems swings across the river more slowly, and usually deeper because it gets under the surface currents. Skagit Intermediate lines are part sinking, part floating, and present a fly to fish in the bottom half of the water column very effectively. This system requires the use of RIO iMOW Sink Tips. OR a full 10' of T-8, T-11, or T-14. MOW tips that are part floating/part sinking should not be used with a Skagit Intermediate head.

WINTER PRIORITY SETUP Includes:
  • Echo TR2 Spey Rod
  • Echo ION 10/12
  • Airflo FIST SKAGIT INTERMEDIATE Shooting Head - We will choose the appropriate head based on the rod you choose. If you have a personal preference, please let us know.
  • Airflo Flo Tip - .
  • OPST Lazar or Airflo Superdri Ridge Running line Please specify in the notes or it is our choice
  • Backing Installed

3. SUMMER PRIORITY SETUP - This system is for the angler fishing for Summer steelhead or Atlantic Salmon from August - October and would like the best line for presenting small lightweight flies. Depending on the rod, this will be some type of Scandinavian style shooting head. These heads are longer than Skagit heads therefore require less stripping of the line back in after a presentation, hence less shooting line back out. These lines are favored by slightly more experienced spey casters especially when casting for distance. Longer heads are more stable in flight and cast further than Skagit Heads. These lines also tend to unfurl and land much softer than Skagit heads making them highly advantageous in clear water that is relatively flat. This system requires use of RIO Spey Versileaders.
SUMMER PRIORITY SETUP Includes:
  • Echo TR2 Spey Rod
  • Echo ION 10/12
  • Scandinavian Style Shooting Head (varies based on rod model, if you have a personal preference simply let us know in the order comments). We will choose the line that best fits that particular model.
  • OPST Lazar or Airflo Superdri Ridge Running line Please specify in the notes or it is our choice
  • Airflo Spey Polyleader 10' Fast Sink
  • Backing Installed
