Orvis Clearwater Fly Rod 2 4.5 5 1

The Orvis Clearwater® is one of the best value-for-money fly rods you can buy but with a significant upgrade in performance and looks. Each rod is designed with a purpose-built profile and action to handle the kind of fishing the rod size would traditionally be used for from a medium action, small-stream rod to medium-fast freshwater rod.

The Orvis Clearwater rods use technology inspired by the award winning Helios rods, making it lighter and more responsive than ever before. Each size is tailored to have the best action suitable for that line weight.  Built with a significant upgarde in reel seat and cosmetics, these rods will revolutionize performance for price.

  • Blanks are black chrome with white accents
  • Quick rod identifiers on the blank
  • Chrome snake and stripping guide with a ceramic insert
  • Full black-nickel aluminium reel seats
  • Rods with fighting butts have composite tips for durability
  • Comes with grey rod tube
  • 25-Year Guarantee
  • Designed in Vermont, USA

7ft 6in #4 4pce : the ideal rod to provide that extra power without sacrificing the delicate presentations required by small, skinny water. This rod packs easily, weighs less than a cell phone, yet will turn the heads of most any trout you encounter, with a smooth action perfectly tailored for light flies and light tippets.

9ft 0in #5 4pce : is a standard for western rivers and bigger eastern water.  Not only does it have the length to reach out and control drifts and the power to reach far banks, but the line weight to handle big trout and light bass.

9ft 0in #6 4pce : is a stout trout and light bass fly rod that can handle big, heavy streamers, big hair poppers, dropper setups, and nymph rigs with ease. This is a great rod for pounding the banks from a drift boat or dropping poppers on the edge of lily pads. This is a must-have rod in Alaska for throwing mouse patterns and drifting egg patterns and flesh flies to big rainbows.

9ft 6in #6 4pce : cut through breezes off the Gulf as you scour marshes for redfish, and launch indicator rigs across large western rivers. From throwing multi-coloured poppers for bass to chucking articulated streamers for big browns, this rod is ideally suited for everything from light saltwater duty to down-and-dirty sink-tip fishing. When you need a little extra length for mending or casting,this rod is an excellent choice. Saltwater reel seat with cork-and-EVA foam fighting butt.

10ft 0in #3 4pce : is specifically designed to enhance European nymphing tactics. It's light sensitivity and reach offer the perfect rod for maintaining contact with a multiple-fly nymphing rig.  Coupled with a Tactical Nymph line is an exceptional outfit offering reduced line sag and better contact for quicker reaction to subtle takes.

10ft 0in #5 4pce : is a versatile all-around trout rod that offers the power to handle large trout and the reach to control the fly whether mending a streamer across the stream, nymphing with a heavier nymph rig, or even extending the drift of a dry fly over conflicting currents. Anywhere extended reach is beneficial, the Clearwater 105-4 is the perfect answer in cold water or warm, for trout, bass, and panfish.

10ft 0in #7 4pce : is the single-handed steelheader's go-to rod with all the length and line control necessary for light to medium Midwest steelheading using subsurface nymphing or dead-drift presentations. This rod is also the rod of choice in the UK for use with multiple density lines on reservoirs and still waters.

10ft 0in #8 4pce : turn mending into an afterthought with the Clearwater 10ft #8. With an astounding reserve of power, the 10ft length provides ample leverage to pick up large amounts of line, with a reach that transforms mending from a chore into a pleasure. Cast baitfish patterns over the breakers for stripers or swing streamers for steelhead through the winter. This rod can handle it all, in a lightweight and durable, yet inexpensive, package. Saltwater reel seat with cork-and-EVA foam fighting butt.

The 10ft #5 wt is a star performer. Perfect for river trouting wet or dry - put a 6wt up and its a superb stillwater nymph/buzzer rod - also spot on for night fishing for sea trout with a 6wt floater. I've owned over 30 trout rods in my career - this one takes the biscuit. Well done Orvis!

Orvis fly rod
23 Jun 2016
Orvis clearwater fly rod really light and brilliant looking, ease on your hand. Service of the company NIL. Worst service you could ever get. Took them almost a month to deliver all item even though it say 3-4 days onsite. I bought ?350 worth of gear approx 15-20 item, instead of sending all item as one, they send me 10-15 different delivery. What a nightmare this company is. Never ever gonna shop here again.
