Echo Ion/Cabela's Prestige Premier Fly Combo -
Pair up an Echo Ion rod with a Cabela’s Prestige Premier reel. Includes Prestige Plus weight-forward floating fly line (a $39.99 value) and backing.
When rod designer and competitive fly-caster Tim Rajeff set about designing the Ion series, he had large flies, stiff winds and unyielding fish in mind. The Ion’s stiff backbone generates the high line speeds and tight loops necessary to punch big flies into a strong headwind without causing hand and arm fatigue. The rod also has a stiff backbone for slugging it out with ornery denizens of the deep. The series features full-wells cork handles with composite pressure zones. Alignment dots allow for easy assembly. These four-piece travel rods have matte, stealth-grey blanks and 1-1/4" or 2" fighting butts depending on the model. Oversized stripper guides. Hard chrome single-foot snake guides. 30" “fish hero” mark. Each rod comes with a grey Cordura® nylon-covered rod tube.
The all-around match of other midrange fly reels on the market with one big difference – the affordable price. The Prestige Premier models are our lowest-priced fly reels featuring the reliability of a heat-dispersing carbon disc drag. The large-arbor design ensures faster line retrieve. Cast-aluminum construction delivers excellent strength-to-weight ratio. Pressure-fit spool pops out from rear for easy spool exchange, eliminating the chance of lost or broken parts. Easily converts from right- to left-hand retrieve.
