The Orvis Clearwater Fly Rod & Reel Outfit comprises one of the most popular and best-performing rods and reels for the money. Orvis’ Vermont rod designers advance the venerable Clearwater rod series, designed with a purpose. They built profiles and actions for traditional use: medium-action rods for small streams; medium-fast freshwater rods; fast-action big game rods. These are actions to handle small trout, large trout, and light bass. Yet, there’s even a 10-ft. 3 wt. Euro fly rod outfit – lightweight and sturdy with sensitive action – that accurately casts nymphs, dries, and small streamers set at a price point to compete with higher-priced Euro nymphing rods.
