Trout Rivers - Affordable Rod & Reel Outfit
The staff at Pacific Fly Fishers is always on the lookout for the best products at every price. The Echo Carbon XL is a great example. It is an easy-casting rod, is very versatile, and comes with a lifetime original owner warranty at a terrific price. Echo Carbon XL fly rods feature an easy casting, medium-fast action that is ideal for beginning anglers but has plenty of punch to drive casts for long distances or into the wind when necessary. In addition to its nice casting characteristics, we've chosen the Echo Carbon XL rod for its great price and ultimate value. Fish this outfit for finesse dry fly fishing situations, nymphing with strike indicators, or throwing good-sized streamers into the wind.
We have combined the Echo Carbon XL rod with a TFO NXT Black Label II reel. TFO NXT Black Label reels are cast aluminum reels with a very smooth feel and smooth drags. They feature large arbors for fast line pickup and minimal line memory. They can be converted from left- to right-hand retrieve and have a pleasant incoming and outgoing click sound. We've paired the Echo Carbon XL 5wt rod with the TFO NXT Black Label reel for a perfect match.
To complete the outfit, we have also included the popular Scientific Anglers Boost floating fly line which is easy to cast, durable, and covers nearly all you need for trout fishing rivers and streams. We even include backing and an Umpqua Perform X Trout 9-foot 4X leader so your outfit is ready to fish when it arrives.
Take this outfit to just about any trout river in the country and you’re off and rolling on the right foot!

Echo Carbon XL 590-4 Rod - 9-foot, 5-weight, 4-piece rod
Echo Carbon XL fly rods are great rods for a variety of angling pursuits. They are medium-fast action rods which make them a great rod for beginning anglers, but their casting and fishing performance will be obvious to the most seasoned anglers. Much lighter than the previous Echo Carbon rods, the new Carbon XL rods impressed us the moment we cast them. Echo Carbon XL rods come with a rod tube with sewn-in cloth dividers and Echo's Lifetime Warranty. More info.
TFO NXT Black Label II Reel
The TFO NXT Black Label II reel is perfectly sized for the Echo Carbon LX 590-4 rod. The TFO NXT is one smooth reel and has the drag system for delicate, tiny dry flies or big streamers and big fish. Made with cast aluminum construction, the TFO NXT reels are a great value and a reel most anglers will own for a lifetime of use.
Scientific Anglers Boost Floating Fly Line - 5wt
The Frequency Boost floating line from Scientific Anglers is an excellent all purpose line for the beginner fly fisher. Even an experienced caster will honestly never turn down a little extra help with their cast. Luckily, the Frequency Boost, built a half-size heavy, provides just that. This general purpose floating fly line loads quickly, turns over large dries, nymph rigs, and streamers with ease, and features a mid-length head perfect for nearly all freshwater applications. We think the SA Frequency Boost pairs up very nicely with the Echo Carbon XL rods, especially for beginning anglers. More info.
Umpqua Perform X Trout Leader - 9ft 4X, 7lb.
Umpqua Perform X Trout Leaders are nylon leaders with the perfect blend of suppleness and power for most trout fly fishing applications. Umpqua's Perform X Trout Leaders are supple enough for a delicate turnover for dry flies, but have the power to fish nymphs and small streamers. With an excellent breaking strength to diameter ratio, Perform X Trout Leaders also have the strength to hold onto that big fish and get it to the net. More info.
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.
