The editors of Outdoor Canada suggest these great goodies for your outdoorsy loved ones
Still not as well known as it should be, fly tackle company Echo continues to turn out very good gear at world-beating prices. As well as its all-around saltwater and freshwater rods, Echo has been adding more specialty gear, including the new Lago rod. The 10-foot-long Lago is available in 5-, 6- and 7-weight sizes, and is specifically designed for lake fishing from small boats, such as kayaks, canoes and inflatable pontoons. In particular, its length and power are optimized to cast sinking lines from a seated position. And with a list price of US$269, there are few specialty fly rods that can touch it for value and performance.
