Echo Dry Fly Rod Echo Dry Fly Rod
Sure, catching fish on a nymph is a good time, and sometimes it's a necessary evil if you actually want to catch fish. But, chances are it was that first fish you caught on a dry fly that got you hooked on fly fishing in the first place. With a design that's optimized for casting dries to hungry trout, the Echo Dry Fly Rod is the ideal rod when you're fishing a small mountain stream on a warm summer evening or looking for trout on a crystal-clear spring creek. The Dry has a crisp medium-fast flex geared towards casting standard-weight lines and playing feisty trout with light tippets. The Dry also has a slightly faster flex than Echo's Gecko or Base rods, and it has a bit more power than any of Echo's throwback fiberglass rods, allowing the Dry to easily make presentations in the 25-50 foot range. The rod is designed to be fished with a standard weight line, so you don't have to worry about over weighting the rod with a heavier line.

Echo Echo Glass Fly Rod - 3-Piece Echo Echo Glass Fly Rod - 3-Piece
It's easy to get carried away with all the new fan-dangled rod technologies that come out year after year, and lose sight of how simple fly fishing really should be.

The Echo Glass Fly Rod is a throwback to the fiberglass rod your grandpa used to cast with a slow tempo feel that is great for making short and precise presentations with a dry fly.

Hardy Jet Fly Rod - 4 Piece Hardy Jet Fly Rod - 4 Piece
The Hardy 4-Piece Jet Fly Rod brings the strength and agility of Sintrix sticks within reach of anglers who may not have unlimited fishing funds. Slightly softer both in action and on your bank account than the Zenith, the Jet is still made with light yet sturdy Sintrix and is spectacularly well suited to dry fly fishing. Whether you're trying to trick a trout with a nymph or going the way of a dry fly, this 4-piece sweetheart of a stick gives your casting moves that most fighter jets don't have. Howard Croston, angler extraordinaire and rod designer for Hardy, deliberately crafted the Jet using Sintrix 330. This version of Sintrix makes the Jet stronger than typical carbon fiber fly rods by 30%, thus able to handle a bit more fish fight. High-grade cork takes the form of either full-well or half-well handles for a well-connected feel in hand. A burl spacer on some of the rods make the reel seat almost too pretty to cover. The double-nut, up-locking mechanism holds tight to the reel (sold separately) without wrecking the aesthetics of the rod. Hard anodized aluminum hardware and Fuji guides ensure the Jet won't be phased out of your fishing arsenal due to age or intensity of use. The medium-fast, middle-to-tip action makes this an incredibly versatile rod that will perform well in almost every situation, though trying to hit the bulls-eye from 90 feet away will take focus. Four-piece construction and a cloth-covered hard rod tube makes it easy to store the Jet in the overhead compartment or fit tidily in the boot when you're ferrying actual people in your car.

Hardy Sirrus Glass Rod - 3-Piece Hardy Sirrus Glass Rod - 3-Piece
Chances are it wasn't fishing San Juan worms under a bobber or bouncing scuds along the river bottom that got you hooked on fly fishing--for most of us, it's the feel of the cast, the science behind matching the hatch, and the excitement of watching a wild trout rise to your fly as you set the hook that converts us from casual anglers to life-long fly fishing addicts. The Hardy Sirrus Glass Rod was designed precisely for this style of fishing with a unique construction that combines the classic, deep-loading feel of fiberglass with the lightness and response of graphite. Hardy calls its fiberglass/graphite hybrid Sintrix resin impregnated S glass, but regardless of what you want to call it, suffice it to say that this rod loads deep in the butt section of the blank while maintaining the side-to-side stability of what you might expect to find on a more modern graphite rod. While the Sirrus is ideally paired with small trout streams and dry flies, it isn't afraid to cast a dry-dropper rig when trout are playing hard to get, and it will even swing a wet fly or two when you're itching to try that partridge and yellow that you tied the night before.

Orvis Helios 2 Covert Fly Rod Orvis Helios 2 Covert Fly Rod
When Orvis got a group of guides together to improve its popular Helios 2 fly rod, they didn't really set out to reinvent the wheel--in fact, they stuck to the don't fix what isn't broke mantra that's produced so many classic Orvis fly rods through the years. The Helios 2 Covert Fly Rod has the same power and accuracy of the ever-popular Helios 2, but it now comes in a sleek black finish that is sure to turn some heads whether you're putting on a casting clinic for clients or just rigging your rod at the put-in. The most noticeable difference between the Helios 2 and Helios 2 Covert is obviously the matte black finish, black guides, and black hardware. At first glance, this change may seem purely superficial, but its design also serves to reduce glare and flash when you're casting the 5wt model to catch skittish trout in a small river or big reds in crystal-clear coastal waters. Apart from the rod's noticeably sleek design, the Helios 2 Covert still maintains the power and precision you'd expect from a Helios 2, along with the same premium flor-grade cork handle, crush-proof snake guides, and titanium snake guides to ensure durability. And like all top-shelf Orvis rods, the Covert is made with pride in Manchester, Vermont.

Redington Butter Stick Fly Rod - 3-Piece Redington Butter Stick Fly Rod - 3-Piece
The Redington 3-Piece Butter Stick Fly Rod evokes days of yore when American muscle cars reigned supreme, it was safe to hitch-hike (relatively speaking), and fly fishing was still a semi-secret cult. Three slim pieces of fiberglass have a beautiful buttery hue and when acting as one, bend with polished elegance. This little piece of heaven is what you'll want in your hands when you're heading out for a mellow float n' fish on a low-flow, languid river. Fiberglass is a classic rod material when the waters are small and the flies are smaller. The action is slow but not sloppy, letting you feel the rod unload, which is something that's sensual for seasoned anglers and essential for beginners. Should a fish bite, the Butter brings you closer to the action, sharing the sensations of head shakes and runs almost as though you were the fish. The low-weight rod options give you the ability to finesse small casts and sweet rolls with a hopper or dry fly. Long-time anglers could probably put a leech or bugger on the 5wt and hit the bulls-eyes with little difficulty. High-grade cork makes the grip great, whether you choose the half well or cigar shaped handle. Three pieces makes the Butter beautiful to transport, and alignment dots leave little room for error. Small streams, tiny flies, and the pure pleasure of being outside on the water is when you'll want the Butter.

Redington is offering the Hydrogen in weights ranging from two to six to meet the demands of any dedicated trout angler, along with three nymph actions in a three-weight, which feature a softer tip for easier turnovers and increased detection for subtle takes.

This sleek quartet of futuristic carbon fiber comes together to create a singularly sweet piece of fast-casting action when you're moving off small streams and into big bodies of water. Red where your hand holds the rod signifies a bold break from the norm, leaving cork behind. Ribbons of high-density carbon fibers are first wrapped inside the blank and then counter-wrapped on the exterior of the blank to increase power, stability, and vibrational dampening. Firing sidearm loops into trees is surprisingly tight and clean, and striking the sweet spot some 50-60 feet is even easier. Load 'er up and toss a few bombs without sacrificing touch for power. Instead of traditional cork handles, the Red reaches for the tech that has kept golfers grinning. Wrap your hand around the Winn non-slip polymer for a softer handle that doesn't get slippery or too hard to hold as the day wears on. Alignment dots take away any uncertainty when it's time to put together your angling weapon. Handle options let you choose half-wells, full-wells, fighting butts, or just an ordinary extension. When you're done for the day, keep the Red ready in the included cloth storage bag.

Sage Bolt Fly Rod - 4-Piece Sage Bolt Fly Rod - 4-Piece
When high winds blow crippled mayflies along the far bank, big trout pushing 20 inches will feed aggressively on the struggling bugs. And while the fish may be rising, making a decent cast, let a lone a good one with winds like this can be next to impossible--unless you're casting the Sage Bolt Fly Rod. Replacing the award-winning Accel in Sage's lineup, the all-new Bolt is an ultra-fast rod designed to cut through headwinds whether you're throwing streamers from the bow of drift boat, chasing saltwater species, or trying to hook that trout sipping crippled baetis flies on the far bank.Made with Sage's Generation 5 technology, the blank is composed of a graphite hoop material and a carbon/resin composite--this gives the Bolt its stiff, tip-action feel and the backbone to push flies through obnoxious head winds. The bolt is available in weights ranging down to freshwater four- and five-weights all the way up to a saltwater-specific eight-weight. Four and five weight options feature a snub-nose half wells cork handle with a rosewood insert and up-locking reel seat, while weights ranging from six to eight will have a full wells handle, fighting butt, and anodized spacer with up-locking reel seat. Every rod in the lineup has a classic looking salmonfly color blank with a rich looking orange thread wraps with a black trim. Svelte looks aside, the Bolt is a fast-action rod that will cater well to the angler who prefers a light, stiff, and responsive feel, or the angler who is looking to add a powerful rod to their arsenal of rods to cast mice, large dries, and big, meaty streamers, wind or not.

Sage Little One Fly Rod - 4-Piece Sage Little One Fly Rod - 4-Piece
Going from your fast-action five weight to a slow-action three weight can leave you with some wonky casts that will ultimately spook the kind of fish that like to hideout in the stretches of pocket water that make up most small creeks and streams. Traditionally, going light meant having to sacrifice line speed and casting feel, but Sage is changing that with its Little One Fly Rod. Essentially, the Little One is a smaller version of Sage's flagship One fly rod, and as a result, the rod is only available in trout-specific weights and lengths that will perform best when fishing the types of small creeks and streams that demand short, precise, and careful presentations.As you might expect from a rod in this class, the Little One is made with top-shelf components and features Sage's iconic Konnetic Technology, which delivers tight loops and exceptional line delivery, and with a weight that is truly ultralight. The actual blank has a black ice color, which is complemented by black thread wraps that are accented with a bronze trim. The distinguishing snub-nose handle handle has that distinctive Sage look, while the walnut spacer and bronze up-locking reel seat give the Little One that classic look we all want from a dedicated trout rod. Like all Sage Rods, the Little One is made in America and comes with an aluminum rod tube with a cloth bag to protect your investment.

Sage Method Fly Rod - 4-Piece Sage Method Fly Rod - 4-Piece
You practice, fish hard, spend hours on the river, and have paid your dues, so it's no wonder you use the Sage Method 4-Piece Fly Rod. Built on Sage's Konnetic technology, the Method produces high line speeds and tight loops for extreme distance and wind-cutting casts all while maintaining critical accuracy and feel. Konnetic technology uses an advanced modulus positioning system by which Sage precisely aligns carbon fibers to exacting tolerances for optimal performance in the blank. In addition, Sage's layup process features a high compression molding process wherein carbon fibers are compressed for optimal density in a narrow diameter blank, with a carbon inner core that's 50% lighter than previous rod cores. As a result, Sage is able to deliver the Method--an ultra fast action fly rod that's able to punch through the wind and carry the biggest, bulkiest, heaviest flies in your box out to where they can work their magic. The magma red-colored shaft of the Method is complemented by rust-colored primary thread wraps and pewter trim wraps. Fuji ceramic stripping guides and robust guide sets round out the features of this high-end rod series. Its freshwater series (4-6wt) features a snub-nose, half-wells grip while the Method's saltwater series (6-10wt) has a full-wells grip with fighting butt. For protection during transport and storage, the Method comes with a black rod sock and a fusion red powder-coated rod tube with a silver-colored medallion and gloss black end caps.

Sage Mod Fly Rod - 4-Piece Sage Mod Fly Rod - 4-Piece
Sage's Mod Fly Rod isn't going to excel at throwing heavily weighted nymph rigs up river, and it isn't going to be great at punching articulated streamers through the wind on a cloudy day--it's a rod designed to do the kind of fishing that lured most of us to the fly fishing sect in the first place, and that's making delicate and precise presentations to selective trout on gin-clear rivers. The Mod is made with Sage's iconic Konnetic Technology to give the rod a modern, responsive feel, but its mid-loading feel puts it somewhere between the deep-loading Circa and the super-fast One, making it an exceptional rod for those times you're fishing trico spinners or casting green drakes to eager trout on freestone rivers.Sage gave the Mod all the components you'd expect of a rod in this class, with a Super Plus cork handle and Sage's distinctive snub-nose shape. A Zebra wood insert gives the Mod the look and feel of a classic trout rod, while the durable up-locking aluminum reel seat will withstand the wear and tear of a full summer chasing some of the best hatches across Western rivers. The blank has a jade green color with yellow and green thread wraps that are accented with a black trim. The rod comes with a powder-coated aluminum rod tube and a black rod bag, and like all Sage rods, the Mod is handcrafted on Bainbridge Island, USA.

Sage SALT Fly Rod - 4-Piece Sage SALT Fly Rod - 4-Piece
Sage's new offering of the saltwater-specific SALT Fly Rod provides anglers with the precision and power needed to land bones, tarpon, and permit all in the same day. In what Sage is calling its salt-action, the Salt fly rod boasts a fast action designed specifically for saltwater fishing along with a high line speed to make those long, and often difficult, presentations to skittish bone fish in the flats. Slightly more robust than its predecessor, the Xi3, the Salt is specifically built to stand up to big fish when you need to steer them away from a stand of mangroves and to punch heavy flies through wind while still delivering an accurate and precise presentation. Since the Salt features Sage's Konnetic Technology, you can rest assured that you'll be able to effortlessly drop your fly right where it needs to be from 50 feet out without spooking the fish. The Salt also features a burlier fighting butt, as well as heavy-duty, stealth black anodized aluminum up-locking reel seat. An integrated hidden hook keeper gives you a place to secure your fly when you're on the move, and the included electric blue aluminum rod tube ensures your rod makes it to your destination intact.

Sage X Fly Rod - 4-Piece Sage X Fly Rod - 4-Piece
To the untrained eye there is little difference between a size 12 Adams and size 18 cripple dun--and yet, one pattern will lure the most selective wild trout into carefully slurping it from the surface film, while the other is typically reserved for hatchery-bred planters that are just as likely to strike a bobber drifting through their feeding lane. The same logic applies to anglers and fly rods. Like mass-produced flies and bobber flingers, fast action fly rods are about a dime a dozen these days. With more and more companies producing rods that place the power of the rod towards the tip of the blank, Sage's response to the industry is a true fast-action rod that allows the caster to access the mid and butt sections of the blank, putting more power towards the handle for a deeper-loading feel than could be found on any of Sage's previous flagship rods. While Sage has always been at the forefront of the fast-action revolution--as was evident with the now-iconic One and Z-Axis--it has never been willing to sacrifice quality, detail, or production practices in its pursuit to create a lighter, faster, and more responsive fly rod. When the One replaced the cannon-like Z-Axis in 2012, its impressively lightweight design and blisteringly fast action made it the go-to choice for anglers looking for a rod that was light in the hand but still packed a punch when casting into a headwind during a green drake hatch or presenting foam-bodied hoppers on a blustery summer day. Part of what made the feel of the One so versatile and fast was its powerful tip--a feel the X Fly Rod improves on by efficiently dispersing energy through the blank with its KonneticHD technology. KonneticHD is similar to the original Konnetic technology, but its refined graphite-to-resin ratio better amplifies the strength-to-weight ratio of the blank and increases the overall stiffness of the rod while reducing lateral and medial wobbling as the rod is loaded. If you're the type of person that isn't con.

The Wetfly Nitroglass Fly Rod's relaxed tempo has a more forgiving feel than modern graphite rods and will make floating your fly within the feeding lane of wary trout with minimal surface disturbance a whole lot easier. And since the rod's fiberglass bends deeply into the butt section of the rod, you'd better be ready for the fight of a lifetime if that 20-inch brown you spot slurping cripple duns takes your fly.
