Tim Rajeff had a goal of making fly fishing easier for youngsters when he created Echo Gecko rods. Now kids don’t have to learn using rods that are too long and too stiff for them. This rod has a specially designed handle and a short 2" fighting butt that allows the smallest anglers to cast with two hands. A bright yellow blank with orange thread wraps and colored handle make it fun to look at and to cast, and its length is ideal for trout, panfish and bass. The rod can handle a short belly WF5 or a standard WF4 line. A three-piece travel design sports alignment dots for quick assembly and a Fuji®-style fast-tighten reel seat. Hard chrome snake guides. Rod sock and sturdy rod case included. Length: 7’9". Action: Medium-Fast.
