Echo Carbon XL Euro Nymph Fly Rod review fishing competition Czech Nymphing

We’ve been anxiously waiting for the Carbon XL Euro rods to arrive, and they finally have! I ordered one for myself as soon as they became available to order. The standard Carbon XL has been an awesome rod for us, and we had high hopes for the Euro Nymph series of Carbon XLs – we weren’t disappointed, to say the least. I got out and fished with mine a couple times over the past week, and have been rather impressed with it!

It’s been awhile since Tenkara USA has come out with a new rod, but they knocked it out of the park with the new Tenkara USA Hane rod! We’ve been big fans of Tenkara fishing since we started carrying Tenkara USA in 2013 – the versatility and perfect drift make them fantastic fishing tools for our local streams, and they’re great for teaching new folks as well. Tenkara has always been a simplistic and packable way to fish, but the new Hane takes packability to a new level.

g loomis imx pro fly rods in stock

Every few years a rod series comes out that blows us away, regardless of price – the new G Loomis IMX Pro series of fly rods are doing exactly that. Loomis really hasn’t been on a lot of people’s radar around our area for awhile, but that’s quickly changing after folks give the IMX Pro a wiggle and a test cast. Each rod in the IMX Pro series has a distinct taper and action that’s particularly suited to a certain style of fishing. These rods have a cool, classic...

Trout Spey Rod Review Sage Redington Echo

We just got back from a Trout Spey trip to the Bighorn River in Montana, and had a chance to cast and fish a few different Trout Spey Rods. We had a great time fishing with some different tactics, and a synopsis of the trip can be found in this blog post. If you haven’t swung flies for trout with a lightweight spey rod, you’re missing out!

Redington Hydrogen – The first thing that comes to mind with this rod was how incredibly lightweight it is...
