There'll be plenty of time to geek out on the different flies and fly lines out there once you have a few months of fishing under you belt, but it's best to keep things simple when you're learning with the Echo Traverse Fly Rod and Reel Kit. Echo made this kit ready to fish--with the addition of a few flies and some leader--right out of the box and gave the rod a beginner-friendly action that strikes a good balance between power and speed. The cast aluminum reel is fitted with a smooth disc drag system to protect delicate tippets when you do hook into that first trophy trout, and it comes pre-spooled with a weight-forward fly line to help ease the learning curve as you learn to double haul and roll cast.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
