ECHO DRY: a series of medium fast action rods, designed primarily for classical dry fly and nymph fishing for trout and grayling. From a #2 to #6 wt, all 9 feet.
When flawless fly presentation is the name of the game, the ECHO DRY is your rod. True to size, the DRY balances perfectly with a standard-weight line and loads easily at ‘real’ fishing distances. Standard weight fly lines will pair perfectly with the DRY series for presenting your flies to those fish that are right at your feet, but still have everything necessary to pick up and cast to that one that just rose under the far bank.
Finicky trout and grayling will never see you coming.

Action vs Power Comparison
The Action vs. Power matrix is used for comparison between ECHO rod models. Utilizing this chart, you’ll be able to choose an ECHO rod that best fits you and your personal casting stroke. The vertical axis indicates the rod’s power, while the horizontal axis indicates the rod’s action. In simple terms, single-hand rod action is derived from the top half of the rod, while power is derived from the bottom half.
Fast action rods feature softer tips than medium action rods and provide a ‘stiffer’ feel. Fast action rods excel in the hands of anglers with more aggressive casting strokes and greater stroke control. Medium action rods are ideal for anglers with more fluid casting strokes and have a larger ‘sweet spot’ for a wider range of casting strokes. Consistently throwing a tailing loop? Your rod’s action may not be a good fit to you and your casting stroke.
A rod’s power is its resistance to flexing under load. Powerful rods are ‘beefier’ through the bottom half, generate higher line speeds, and are more adept at keeping big fish pinned. Delicate rods are more presentation-oriented, protect light tippet, and are a better choice for picky fish.
