Echo Streamer X-890

Fishing for big trout using streamers is evolving at unapparelled pace. One of the people pushing the envelope of equipment and technique is Kelly Galloup. Building flies that look more at home in the ocean that a trout river Kelly has developed specific equipment to fish larger bulky flies efficiently. He wanted a rod that can quickly deliver a cast to a target the size of a coffee cup using a big fly and sinking line. Rods that can get the job done are ones with powerful bottom sections mated to faster tip actions to help initiate the cast with a minimum of false casts. Since it is all but impossible to pick up and recast a 50-foot shot with a fast sinking lines the new StreamerX rods have been optimized to easily pick up a short line with a bulky fly and in a few false cases hit a small target.

To accomplish the task Kelly asked for a rod with with several upgrades from his former Bank Robber signature rod.

Upgrades

  • Thinner and faster tip for animating the fly and detect strikes for hook set.
  • Flex in the mid section of the rod to open up the cast and throw tighter loops.
  • A faster butt section. This is where the bulk of the kinetic energy is created and stored to deliver the fly on the forward stroke.  Work smart not hard and deliver flies with the greatest efficiency.

StreamerX rods are all 9’ long and come in a 6, 7, and 8 weight. They have all titanium guides and Kelly’s favorite handle shape. They come with a hard case and are 4 pieces to travel well.

With Kelly’s custom handle shape, powerful bottom section and fast loading top section, this rod is build top to bottom for big flies and accuracy.  If current conditions call for smaller flies, it will continue to surprise you with its versatility!

  • Tube:  Fabric-covered rod case & sock
  • Guides: Oversized stripping guides
  • Grips:  Kelly Galloup custom grip
