    ECHO DRY 290 FLY ROD : 2WT, 9'0"


    The Echo Dry 290 Fly Rod delivers flawless dry fly presentations both in close and at long distances. This 2wt is an awesome rod for fishing smaller flies for small to medium size trout. This ultra-light trout rod has incredible line feel and a silky smooth, crisp, medium-fast action. The DRY-290 also excels at nymphing, roll casting, and mending line. The 9'0"length casts longer distances than any other 2wt, effortlessly covering more water. You have never had as much fun with a fly rod in your hands as you will with this sweet casting 2wt rod!


    Echo is legendary for building exceptional, high-performance rods that rival the best rods on the market, at a much lower price. The Echo Dry fly rods are the smoothest casting dry fly rods and compare to high-end rods that cost 2-3 times as much. If you are looking for a silky smooth and crisp medium-action trout rod at a very modest price, the Echo Dry was made for you!

    • Super smooth, crisp, medium-fast action, with amazing line feel

    I had a decent set of fly rods from an old 9 foot 6 wt Sage to my fall back trout Orvis Helio 3F in 5 wt down to a 7 1/2 foot 3 wt for panfish. But I wanted a longer 8.5-9 foot fly rod in a 2 wt and the Echo Dry 9 foot 2 wt was the only rod that matched my search. I matched it with an Irvis Battenkill I and a 2 wt line - and it’s just right for fishing Bluegills/panfish in the creeks and ponds on North Texas. I will also try it for small trout later this year. The quality is great and it is very light and a breeze to fish all day. Also love the customer service that the excellent pro staff at ReelFlyRod provides.

    I've always wanted a longer ultralight fly rod and finally pulled the trigger on an Echo Dry 290 this past month. I was a little nervous about a rod advertised as specializing in "dry" flies only, but decided it was worth the risk after reading a number of reviews that suggested it was capable of much more than its name implied. Paired with an old Orvis BBS I, and a 2wt line old enough I can no longer identify it, it performs admirably. As expected, it excels at small dries. However, it can also turn over small streamers and dry-dropper rigs with relative ease. Of particular surprise was the fact that it had enough strength to still remain fairly accurate while dealing with a 15+ mph crosswind yesterday morning. While long ultralights are a bit of a niche product, I highly recommend this one to anyone who is in the market. Well worth it.

    Bought this Echo Dry 290 rod to supplement my shorter Echo Boost (BST 270) rod. I wanted the longer Dry 290 for bigger waters and rivers. Works great for long casts with soft landings of drys on still waters, as well as for nymphing deep pools.
