This specimen resembled several others of around the same size and perhaps the same species, which were pretty common in my February sample from the upper Yakima. Unfortunately, I misplaced the specimen before I could get it under a microscope for a definitive ID.

I have a Redington 10' 6" #6 I like for swinging flies for Great Lakes steelhead. I didn't buy it as a combo though. I use an older Orvis SSS reel on it with a Rio #6 switch line. Can easily switch cast 75 feet with it. The text below is direct from the Redington web site;
Dually | 7116-4 Price $269.00
The 7116-4 is the do-it-all switch rod for steelheading on smaller rivers or those rivers with tighter casting spaces. Recommended Skagit Grains: 450-475 Scandi Grains: 400-425

I have the echo fiberglass 7 wt. switch rod, pretty neat. Im not sure its still available, I have two echo ion reels, one has airflo Skagit, and the other has rio switch chucker. I have not used it much, but I hope to remedy that soon.
