…….. and the flies used to target them match the hatch! Not many rods are built from square one to load up and deliver half a chicken.
Echo teamed up with some of the Midwest’s most obsessed musky anglers to develop a series of rods to do it all: Close to the water, high gunnels, figure eight, full sinking, intermediate tip, 1000 casts, stupid big flies… You get the idea.
The Musky comes in two length options, both in 11wt. The 8’8″ for fishing close to the water, and the 9’4″ for the “taller” boats. Choose the one that gets you the best figure eight!
Wash all components with warm freshwater after each days use in saltwater. Pay extra attention to the space where the guides meet the blank and the metal parts of the reel seat. Try to keep sand and dirt out of the ferrules. Occasionally use a few drops of any reel oil or grease on the reel seat threads to keep it operating smoothly. Paraffin wax can also be used on the ferrules if needed to ensure a proper fit.
Do not use tape on your ferrules. If you do we’ll come steal all your bacon and PBR.
