    ECHO CARBON XL 490 FLY ROD : 4WT, 9'0"

    The Echo Carbon XL 490 Fly Rod is is the perfect choice as your all-purpose trout rod for mid-sized streams and rivers for average size trout.This is the sweetest, smoothest casting 4wt you will find under $400. This 4wt has incredible line feel and a silky smooth medium-action. The Carbon XL rod makes the most delicate dry fly presentations, will throw small streamers with ease, and casts beautifully in close and at long distances. The 9'0"  length is versatile to handle virtually any fishing situation and excels as a nymphing rod. The Carbon XL 4wt is ideal for those with a slower, smooth casting stroke and is forgiving enough to make any fly fisher a better caster. 

    Tim Rajeff spent over a year designing these rods so they would have an exceptional smooth action and feel to appeal to a broad range of anglers, while being virtually effortless to cast. Echo is legendary for building exceptional, high-performance rods that rival the best rods on the market, at a much lower price. The Echo Carbon XL fly rods are the sweetest casting rods and compare to high-end rods that cost 4 times as much. If you are looking for a fantastic, medium-action trout rod at a very modest price, the Echo Carbon XL was made for you!

    Aaron (PA) | December 23rd, 2022
    I am a fan of Echo rods and use them for trout and steelhead. The Echo Trout XL is a nice rod, especially for the price. I would recommend it.

    My son recently bought this rod for me as a birthday present. I was just lawn casted it so far, but can tell it will fish great with dries. I have several Echo rods and expect the same great quality
