a dry fly specific rod series called the Echo Dry. The Dry is made specifically for the most common dry fly distances: 25-50 feet. The rod has a soft tip to protect light tippets and encourage delicate presentations to wary trout. Don’t expect the Dry to throw big nymph rigs or toss long-distance mends; this rod is really good at what it’s designed for, and that’s dry fly fishing. Echo has kept the rod true-to-line and designed it to load easily at short and long distances. If you’re an avid dry fly angler, this rod will fit nicely into your arsenal.
