The Echo Shadow II is a redesigned version of the original Shadow, and is one of our favorite European Nymphing rods! The long and light construction of the Shadow II allows you to reach out and over conflicting currents all day without getting worn out. Czech nymphing is an incredibly effective way to fish, and a long, light rod will let you get smooth drifts through the fishiest water! It comes in three models from 2-4 weight, covering every situation with ease. If the length of the Shadow II isn't quite enough, look into the Comp Kit, which comes with two 6" sections that you can add to the rod, as well as a weight for the butt so everything balances out smoothly. The Shadow II comes with a rod tube and sock, features 4 pieces construction, and has Echo's lifetime warranty. This is the ultimate competition rod, and at a great price!
