    Greetings Tom, I ended up purchasing (advertised as new and unused) Echo SR. 4wt for an agreed price of $235.00 shipped..

    I actually got it for an in-law who has been asking me to keep an eye out for an Echo but if he does not want it I guess I will have a 4wt switch rod to use.

    I own a 8wt. Redington Prospector Switch Rod and a Winston 8wt Spey Rod that I cast for the first time about 3 weeks ago.. It is a long rod but I think it is going to be a great rod for big water, I just need to practice spey casting... The Yakima, I will have to take you up on that offer sometime.. I have been trying to figure out where to fish in that area as I am in Downtown Yakima 3 times a year attending Marine Corps League Conventions, I just know we stay in a motel near a public center building of some sort. As a matter of fact I was suppose to be there this past weekend for our spring meeting but other things kept me from going. take care and keep contact anytime..

    Congrats on the new rod. Pat Lat has the same rod and I got to try it out last month on the Yakima. I don't know how to spey cast, but tried some roll casts and double hand overhead. Both seems to work well. I can see it being the perfect tool for beach fishing for Salmon. A 4-5wt double hander is definatly in my future.
