Orvis Clearwater Fly Rod
The Clearwater 9' Fly Rod is the perfect light-line rod for bigger water with the reach and power for longer casts, more line control in mending and nymphing, but still with the touch and light feel to present dry flies to a rising fish at distance and control the line for longer drifts. Excellent reach and line control for fishing smaller streamers across and down larger streams and rivers. Long and powerful, yet light and responsive, the Clearwater 9' is a rod that will provide you with a remarkable fly rod return on investment.
The Clearwater 10' Fly Rod is specifically designed to enhance European nymphing tactics. Its light sensitivity and reach offer the perfect rod for maintaining contact with a multiple-fly nymphing rig. Given the new popularity of this technique, the Clearwater 10' coupled with a Tactical Nymph line is an exceptional outfit offering reduced line sag and better contact for quicker reaction to subtle takes.
The new Clearwater® Rod Series is not just a cosmetic facelift, but a complete overhaul from the ground up by our Vermont rod designers. Everything has changed except the value. It's still the best fly rod you can buy for the money, but with a significant upgrade in performance and looks in a comprehensive series that covers every angler from small stream addicts to Skagit slinging two-handers. Each rod was designed with a purpose-built profile and action to handle the kind of fishing the rod model would be traditionally used for, from medium-action small stream rods to medium-fast freshwater rods and fast-action big game rods.
