While most of us tend to think of an ultra-clear stream with super picky trout as the pinnacle of technical fly fishing, fishing a lake can often be just as tough…and whenever you don’t have a rod designed for the task, things only get tougher. That was until Echo made their Lago series of fly rods. Designed to cover water efficiently, the Lago series features a 10’ length to increase reach and cast anything from a dense sinking line with a series of nymphs all the way to a floating line with a large parachute. However, the benefit of this longer rod also comes into play when fishing from a float tube or canoe, something that’s often handicapped by fishing shorter rods like a 9’ or even an 8’6”--whether you’re gearing up for a roll cast or getting your sinking line to the surface to recast, the 10’ length of the Lago is sure to make things simpler. And although this family of rods was designed for use in stillwater environments, the Lago is quickly becoming a top choice for fishing large rivers, especially when throwing streamers or heavy nymph rigs all day. Made in line weights 5 through 7, Echo’s Lago has an option whether you’re chasing chunky lake trout in our home state of Maine or working an alpine lake filled with feisty rainbows.
Stainless Stripping Guides with Ceramic Insert - A high-quality choice for this relatively affordable series of rods, Echo’s Lago is outfitted with stainless steel stripping guides that have a ceramic insert. These stripping guides give excellent line slickness to make long casts easy, while also increasing durability and decreasing corrosion.
Chrome Snake Guides - The chrome snake guides further increase durability in the Lago series. Not only are these snake guides a durable option, but they also give excellent shootabiltiy while remaining lightweight.
Anodized Aluminum Reel Seat - Tough, zero-hassle, and with a sharp aesthetic, the Lago’s anodized aluminum reel seat locks your reel in place no matter what you’re tugging on. And with a cobalt blue insert, you get just the right look for fishing those deep stillwater lakes.
Equipped with a rod sock and tube, you can take Echo’s Lago Rod anywhere you go with confidence in its protection. Sturdy and ready to last for years, this rod sock and tube combo has everything that you need for travel or storage.
As of August 2022, all Echo rods are covered by their warranty policy for the natural life of the rod for its original owner, wholly at the discretion of Rajeff Sports. The warranty for Echo rods is covered by a service fee, and/or if the rod is discontinued or non-repairable, Echo will offer an equivalent replacement at 50% of the MSRP. Echo’s warranty applies to any damage that occurs while on the water, so whether you’ve snapped your rod on the fish of a lifetime or the wind quickly changed direction while throwing a heavy stonefly, Echo has your back. However, Echo will not cover damages caused by general neglect, whether that be your rod getting closed in a car door or your dog using the cork as a teething ring.

The Pere Marquette river is a designated Blue Ribbon Trout Stream in Michigan. The main stream of this river is 63.9 miles (102.8 km) long, running from Lake County south of Baldwin into the Pere Marquette Lake, and from there into Lake Michigan. This river is named after the French Roman Catholic missionary Jacques Marquette, who explored the Great Lakes and Mississippi River areas during the mid-17th century. He died in the vicinity of the river in spring 1675 on his way from Chicago to the French fort at Mackinaw.
National Wild and Scenic River designation.
The upper portion of the Pere Marquette runs approximately 44 miles (71 km) from the forks of the Little South and Middle Branches downstream to highway M-37. In 1978, 66 miles (106 km) of the river was designated a National Scenic River. This section begins near Baldwin at the junction of the Little South and Middle Branches and continues until the river meets U.S. Highway 31 in Scottville
