A backup/loaner rod under the Echo Base price of $90 is tough. I generally think spending a bit more tends to get one into a whole nother category of "fun to fish". However, there is one that comes to mind; the Eagle Claw Featherlight is available in an 8' 6wt for under $50. Maybe half that at Amazon. I've never had one, but it appears to be very similar to the rods we had in the 70's before everybody ditched glass for graphite and then some of us went back to fiberglass for some applications. For $25, maybe I need to try one. I was wanting an 8' 6wt backup kayak rod anyway, and would have no qualms about just leaving this in the vehicle year round.

Your best bet is to look at the Eagle Claw Fiberglass Rods, They are well known and well loved as cheap good rods.

I also have this rod, Its a nice little cheap rod with a different feel from the fiberglass. I don't know anything about the reel they offer here. I just have the rod.

Look for an old Martin or other "blue collar" used reel on ebay. That will get you a much more solid setup than some all in one kit.

You don't need $300 to get into fly fishing.
