Items included in this package

  • Echo SR Switch Rod

    The Echo SR two-handed rods were designed by Tim Rajeff and were designed with a modest tip action but with extra power in the butt for throwing tight loops and bombing longer casts when you need to. They handle both Skagit lines and Switch lines beautifully and have a sharp looking black and gray finish. Echo SR rods are 4-piece rods that come with a rod tube, rod sock, and Echo's Lifetime Warranty. More info.

  • Waterworks-Lamson Remix HD Reel

    The Waterworks-Lamson Remix HD Reel is well suited to switch and Spey rods.  This HD (heavy duty) version of the Remix features a full cage frame which makes the reel very sturdy and ideal for switch/Spey anglers fishing monofilament running lines. The drag on the Remix HD reels is the same as other Waterworks-Lamson reels. It is a sealed drag which keeps the drag consistent even when the reel has been dunked in the river. This is an important benefit when you're relying on the perfect drag setting to set the hook when a steelhead takes your fly on the swing.  More info.

  • Airflo Skagit Scout Head

    We paired the Echo SR's with the Airflo Skagit Scout. The Skagit Scout is a Skagit head that is tremendously easy to cast and will allow you to cast in tight quarters such as when your back is up against and buried underneath the trees. The Skagit Scout is an ideal Skagit head for switch rods and will bomb across the river with big flies and sink-tips in tow. The head length ranges from 15 to 18.5 feet depending on the size included in your package.  More info. On the 81010-4 (10' 10" 8wt) we've paired it up with a RIO Elite Skagit Max Power 525 grain, because the Airflo Skagit Scout stops at 480 grains. More Info.

  • Airflo Ridge Running Line

    Airflo Ridge Running Lines are super popular and get our vote for one of the best running lines on the market. They feature a low-stretch core for positive hooks sets even when fishing long casts. Their ridged texture shoots through the guides with ease but is barely noticeable in the hand. Ridge Running Lines also tangle less frequently than other running lines and have excellent durability. More info.

  • Airflo Custom Cut 7-foot Sink-Tip and 13-foot Sink-Tip

    To complete your line setup, we're including two Airflo Custom Cut sink-tips. One sink-tip is cut to 7-feet and is perfect for moderate to shallow water. The second tip is 13-feet and is used for moderate to deep water. Each sink-tip has nicely made loops on each end to easily connect the sink-tip to your Skagit head and so you can quickly add and remove leaders. The sink rate on these tips is 7- to 8-inches per second. More info.

  • Scientific Anglers Backing

    Scientific Anglers' backing is very thin, highly durable and the colors are colorfast. We've been using it for years on everything from trout to billfish and haven't run into a single inconsistency. Your outfit will come with the perfect amount backing already loaded onto the reel and attached to your line. We only use the best knots to rig your setup. We use the Albright Knot with a lock then sealed with glue to connect your backing to your running line. We generally choose a backing color that contrasts your other lines. Let us know if you would prefer a certain color option for your backing. The choices are yellow, orange or white. More info.

  • RIO Steelhead & Salmon Leader - 6-foot

    RIO's Steelhead and Salmon Leaders are perfectly designed for anadromous species such as steelhead and salmon along with being able to turn over any streamer your rod can handle. Its clear, non-glare finish disappears in all water conditions. Its knotless taper has a thicker butt section and uses a slightly stiffer copolymer for abrasion-resistance and for turning over larger flies. The leader already comes with a perfection knot on the butt of the leader and will come in the package already attached to a sink-tip on your reel. Just add fly and go fishing! More info.
