Echo Fly rods
I have an old Fenwick 8wt rod that I built when I was a kid. It works OK but it's time for an upgrade. I'll be using it to throw bass bugs and maybe an occasional cast to a striper. (Maybe not.) I was thinking about a 9' 8wt Echo rod. It looks like a rod that can throw some major line. (Or should I go with the 9wt? Can I over line the 8wt with a 9wt line?) I'll probably use a RIO Clouser line with it.
Anyone have an opinion on the Echo rods?
