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 Guru II Reel

    The Waterworks-Lamson Guru II Reel is perfect for steelhead and salmon rivers and is far superior to most reels you'll find on other Spey rod packages. Its construction is fully machined aluminum with an attractive silver, type 2, anodized finish. It features a one-piece, large arbor spool, lightweight design, and an easy-to-adjust drag knob. The drag on the Guru 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. Retail prices on the Guru 3.5 and 4 reels is $249.95 and $269.95. More info.

  • Airflo Switch Float Line

    We have teamed up the 3wt and 4wt packages with the Airflo Switch Float line. The Switch Float line is a fully intergrated line that will allow you to fish both dry flies and light streamers. This line is also one of the rare lines that is light enough in the front, that it will allow you to make short overhead casts when setup as a floater if needed. But it has enough power to turn over polyleaders with small to moderate streamers. The Switch line comes with a 10' trout floating polyleader. We also have included a Airflo 10' Trout fast sinking polyleader to make it a truly functional package.More info.

  • Airflo Polyleaders

    The 3wt and 4wt packages will be paired with Polyleaders. Because the Airflo Switch Float line is designed to fish with Polyleaders in mind. The Switch Float lines comes stock with a 10' Trout Polyleader, we also have included a Airflo 10' Trout fast sinking polyleader to make it a truly functional package.More info.

  • Airflo Skagit Scout Head

    We paired the 5wt through 8wt 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. They bomb across the river with ease and will cast flies the size of a chicken. The head length ranges from 15.5 to 18.5 feet depending on the size included in your package. They come as just the head so we are also including a necessary running line and two sink tips to complete your line setup. More info.

  • Airflo Ridge Running Line

    Airflo Ridge Running Lines are super popular and get our vote for 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 a 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.
