    Echo Shadow II 3100-4 Fly Rod (3wt, 10'0", 4pc) SH3100

    The Echo Shadow II 3wt 10'0" fly rod is the best nymphing fly rod for smaller, faster creeks and streams. Constructed and designed for the popular Czech and European nymph angler, the Echo Shadow II Fly Rods are a faster action rod that delivers critical feel and line control. If you have never thought about a longer nymph rod, the Echo Shadow II is the perfect choice and price to get you started in long-lining trout and smallmouth out of the deep, fast currents.

    Designed by Tim and Team USA's Pete Erickson, these powerful, moderate- to faster-action "long-light" European-style nymphing rods deliver critical feel and line control with an added bonus: They'll actually cast a dry fly when your feeling dirty. The ultimate fishing competition rod, bar none.

    Features:

    • Classic Matte Black Blank Color
    • Length: 10'0"
    • Weight: 3.2oz
    • Lifetime Warranty
    • Competition Approved
    • Action: Fast-ish

    Good Euro Nymphing rod, but the rod tip is noticeably heavier than other rods at a similar price range. I’d recommend getting a heavier reel to balance it out and/or the Shadow 2 competition kit.

    My goal for this rod was to be able to learn to Euro Nymph with a rod that could also throw a dry if needed. I have paired this rod with the Scientific Anglers Euro Shorty, which makes it easy to remove the euro line and cast dries. It will cast large hoppers beutifully if needed. Tip sensitivity is good, however if you are looking for a Euro dedicated rod it may not be as sensitive as you'd like. The tip is fragile, like all Euro rods, and I have so far broken the tip once landing a large trout. I would recommend buying a replacement tip in advance, espicially if you will be hiking in to fish. My only complaint is that it has an uplocking reel seat, throwing the rod balance past the cork, focing you to oversize the reel. A perfect rod at the price point, minus the uplocking seat.

    I started euro nymphing last December with my Shadow 2 and my qty of trout and whitefish hits and landed fish has improved tremendously when fishing “sub surface” (great for winter trout hunting in rivers / streams). There are many factors (type of fly, leader, presentation, etc) but the Shadow 2 has been one of the biggest reasons for the success. The length allows me to reach further across when wade fishing, and the sensitive tip allows me to feel any bump or bite immediately for quicker hook sets. I also have the competition extension to make it 11’ - more reach if needed. It’s really light and I’ve fished 8-10 hour days and not felt any arm or shoulder fatigue from the weight of the rod. Also Echo is in the US and has a quick turnaround in the event you might break your tip like I did (my fault). I have a spare tip now in case I get careless on the river again!

    I bought this rod a little over a month ago and have been using it steadily to nymph through the winter months. It has been nothing short of a perfect rod and meets all of my needs including price point. I'd recommend this rod to anyone serious about nymphing, it will not disappoint.

    Purchased in April & used over summer. Perfect set up for beginning and continuing in Euro nymphing. Great performance for mid priced rod.

    Excellent rod for nymphing

    I have really been happy with the balance and feel of this rod for euro nymphing. I even picked up the competition kit to get a bit more reach to get some of those distant pockets of water normally just out of reach.
