Shopping for a good beginner's kit? This is the one. We know because we cast a lot of rods and have learned that nothing will ruin a day of fishing faster than a broken rod or reel. This is the problem with most inexpensive beginner kit components: they break - often. Easily. On fish. Which is the absolute worst time to break anything. So while you may not be willing to invest a lot of dough (and who could blame you) on buying a rod and reel for someone new to fly fishing, the question you have to ask yourself is this: how inexpensive is it if you have to buy it twice?

Even beginners need a rod with enough strength and flex to cast line across the water, to catch and reel in a fish (the first fish!). ECHO rods and reels are built to last and guaranteed for life. This means that while you may choose to buy more expensive rods in the future, you won't have to. This rod and reel starter kit will last for years of fishing, making it perfect for the casual fly fisher, and for those who are just getting started. 

The kit comes with just about everything you need to go fishing: rod, reel, fly line, backing, and leader in a convenient carrying case. All you'll need to complete your setup are tippet and flies (call us for recommendations at 650-508-0727). All kit components have been selected for balance and fit by Tim Rajeff, one of the legends of fly fishing.

Features of the SOLO Reels:

ECHO SOLO reels are designed to get you into the sport at a very reasonable price. But don't let the price lead you to believe its short on features. The impact-resistant metal frame and impact-resistant resin spool are surprisingly strong, with a smooth, robust drag and stainless steel inner workings. They come in two sizes and match up perfectly with the ECHO SOLO rods. 

  • Maintenance-free Rulon disc drag with low start-up resistance
  • Backlash-free instant drag reaction
  • Durable, impact resistant metal frame
  • Drag knob positioning click
  • Audible outgoing click
  • One way roller clutch for instant drag reaction

Features of the Echo SOLO Rods:

Creating a travel rod that helps more people get into the sport of fly fishing was something that Tim Rajeff had waited a long time to do. ECHO SOLO rods blend performance and durability into a great looking design that will turn more than the fish's head. A beautiful gloss brown blank and premium components wrapped around a forgiving Medium Fast action blank will help every new fly angler get the feel for a sport that will stay with them for a lifetime. Available in three trout sizes as well as an eight weight to cover salmon, steelhead, and saltwater species.

  • 4-piece travel design
  • Half wells cork handle on the 4, 5 and 6 weight models
  • Full wells cork handle with fighting butt on the 8 weight
  • Carbon fiber reel seat with anodized components
  • Rich brown gloss blank
  • Hard chrome single foot snake guides
  • Rod sock and cordura travel case
