The Echo Shadow II 3wt changed the world of nymphing just a couple years ago during it's release. Possibly our most popular selling rod, we are now offering a great deal on both a line and reel to make this a complete ready to fish outfit.
No matter what options you choose the competition kit will be included for free.
Euro nymph sticks designed by Tim and Team USA’s Pete Erickson. Light and fast, the Shadow II offers critical line feel and control with an action that will also toss a loop when the bugs start flying. Included free Competition Kit (retail $74.99) that includes two 6” extensions, a removable fighting butt, and counterweight washers to fine-tune the rod’s balance.

The Euro Nymph line was designed by Steve Parrot to satisfy the need for a one fits all European style nymphing line that is competition legal. The line is built on a thin diameter, low stretch, supple core to maximize sensitivity and allow for lightning fast hook sets, while a highly visible tip helps anglers detect the slightest of strikes. This line is designed specifically for European style nymphing techniques, such as "French", "Czech", "Polish" and "Spanish" styles.
