‘Glass is not dead’ is a phrase that’s gained some traction in contemporary fly fishing. For Echo, the phrase manifests in both their Bad Ass Glass series and their River Glass rod series. The River Glass series carries a traditional feel, old-fashioned componentry, and a user-friendly design. The River Glass is a perfect rod for anglers who enjoy slowing down their casting stroke or fishing on small water with small flies. This series from Echo is a testament to the fact that fiberglass rods continue to have a place in modern fly fishing despite high-tech graphite.


S-Glass - Echo River Glass rods are made with an S-Glass construction. S-Glass features superior shock absorption capabilities. The glass construction is also durable and resilient while maintaining the style and feel of traditional fiberglass. The blank of the River Glass encourages a slow casting stroke (like most fiberglass rods) and is ideal for dry fly fishing and delicate presentations. The River Glass comes in your choice of two blank colors: Glacier (or light blue) and Carmel (or a reddish brown).



Old School Stainless Stripping Guide - The River Glass Series is equipped with an old-fashioned-looking corrosion-resistant stainless stripping guide. This guide is low friction to help fly line shoot effortlessly through the rod and make delicate presentations easy.

Chrome Snake Guides - The snake guides on the River Glass rods are lightweight and practical. These rods feature quality componentry made for a variety of freshwater angling scenarios.


Reel Seat

Cork Reel Seat - The River Glass has a traditional cork reel seat that’s similar to many other fiberglass fly rods. The cork reel seat includes a downlocking component and anodized aluminum componentry to keep the rod lightweight and stylish.


Rod Tube

Unique Fiberglass Tube - The River Glass rod comes in a unique bright blue fiberglass rod tube. The tube protects the rod during travel and comes with a shoulder strap for easy airport carry.



Echo Fly Rod Lifetime Warranty - Echo will repair or replace any defective or damaged rods for the entire lifetime of the original owner. All rods must be sent to Echo for repairs/service. As of 4/17/2019, Echo charges a $35 fee for fly rod repairs/replacements.
