Echo Gecko 4-Piece Outfit
Echo helps aspirants feel more determined to learn the art of fly-fishing with its Echo Gecko 4-Piece Outfit. Those cartoon-covered plastic rods at the grocery store don’t hold kids' interest for long, but this four-piece rod outfit looks just as professional as an adult model thanks to its hard chrome snake guides and proportioned design.
At 7ft 9in and rated four/five weight, the colorful Echo Gecko naturally fits into kid-sized hands and remains easy to hold with its extra small EVA handle. Convenient alignment dots make assembly quick and easy, and the Fuji-style fast tighten reel seat helps them learn how to fish the right way. This rod outfit also features a rod sock and tough rod tube, as well as a slightly longer butt section that allows your high-spirited novice to hack away at the water, which of course could eventually turn into the perfect cast. Only time will tell.

- Q & A
Great starting rod
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I gave this as a gift for my niece and nephew, they love it. It's the perfect size to start with and the action is surprisingly good.
What age have people been able to get their kids fly fishing?
My kiddo is almost 2, it's too early still. Any other perspectives?
