ECHO is a small, personable company of fly-fisher folk residing in Vancouver, Washington. They are the vision of Tim Rajeff – the culmination of his huge personality and an outlet of both creativity and service to the industry. Tim’s extensive knowledge of fly rod design and performance stems from his early childhood patronage to the Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club in San Francisco, where he became a young and successful competition caster. Tim won a gold medal in the World Casting Games in single hand distance as well as winning the national overall fly accuracy and distance championship. Tim first began designing rods in 1980, and was one of the first people to use and adapt graphite fly rods in competition casting.
