The Echo Ion Fly Reel is the top of the line for a fly reel costing under one-hundred bucks. The design utilizes both cast and machined aluminum. A fully machined bar stock aluminum fly reel is nice but they cost a lot of money and sometimes provide quality far beyond what you may need or can use. The die cast aluminum Ion is the compromise that gives you the best quality for the money. We are going to carry it in three sizes, the 4/5 and 6/7, which will work on most any fly rods commonly used for trout, bass and panfish, and the 7/9 with will hold line for larger single hand rods, switch rods and some Spey rods.
