Encounter Spin/Fly Combo

Our fly spin combo rod offers the ultimate in flexibility and convenience.


It's a spinning rod. No, it's a fly rod. Actually, it's both. Bringing together the best of both fishing worlds, the Encounter Spin/Fly Combo makes being prepared seem like second nature. Built with interchangeable butt sections outfitted with spin and fly reels-and based on Encounter rod technology and cosmetics-this compact combo fly/spin travel rod means no fish should feel safe. 7' in length. (Spin) 2-6 lb. test, 1/16-3/16 oz. lures; (Fly) 5-wt. Leaders are not incldued. Imported.

    Just what I needed.... - 8/4/2014
    By: from Montana

    Needed a rod that was smaller than what I've been taking backpacking with me. This fit the bill and is pretty versatile. I fly fish most often, but every once in a while, cast. The cast rod I had was old, rusty, and falling apart. Not had much of a chance to use it, yet, but quality looks good. Case is nice, but bulky, you'll need something else if you really want to take this much farther than from the car.

    Only used the spin outfit so far but great piece of gear. Carry case is a bonus. Thanks Orvis.

    Excellent All-Around Outfit - 6/20/2014
    By: from Las Vegas, NV

    This is a quality outfit with flexibility for different fishing conditions. I like that there are two separate butt sections for the different reels, rather than trying to make a compromised handle that will accept either reel. As a fly rod it has a fairly stiff, fast action. Works well as a spinning rod. The reels are well made and smooth.

    Great Rod For Bass, Looking Forward to Alaska - 6/4/2014
    By: from VA, AK

    So far has been an excellent spin rod have caught 40+ bass with the largest being 5lbs2oz. Have caught numerous pan fish and Crappie as well. Very fun and active rod whether it's a small fish or a big one. Have not tried out the fly aspect of it yet but will be up in AK soon and will see how it works with some monster trout. Only reason it doesn't have 5 stars is the Bale Arm isn't coming down correctly on every cast and when you are trying to throw a lure under a tree with a quick pick up that's a problem. I may just need to take it apart and oil it, we will see.

    Quality product for an award - 4/16/2014
    By: from Islamorada, Florida

    We purchased the combo as an award for an annual fishing tournament in the Florida Keys. The tournament benefits the Florida Sea Base which provides significant ocean adventures for young men and women. The feedback we have recieved from our anglers and donors related to the combo is very positive. (I plan to buy one for myself)
