Without a doubt, fly fishing and travelling belong together. Thereby, it’s a great advantage if your entire equipment easily fits into your suitcase – rods included! The North American manufacturer Echo took this even one step further and developed a wonderful series of 8-piece travel rods that will fit into a standard backpack.
The Echo Trip Trout is a superb all-round single handed fly rod for trout and grayling fishing with a truly impressive pack size.

In fact, this rod isn’t just great for travelling, because also along your home river a backup rod in your backpack can save your day. Wherever you are: Exploring new waters will take you far away from your vehicle and therefore you will be really pleased to know that there is a spare rod within reach.
