The Story

Everything has changed except the value. The new Clearwater Rod Series is a complete overhaul from the ground up by our Vermont rod designers. Each rod is designed with a purpose-built profile and action to handle the fishing the rod would be traditionally used for, from medium-action small stream rods to medium-fast freshwater rods and fast-action big game rods. Designed in Vermont for anglers worldwide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully responsive rod! I fish this rod on small rivers and it is fantastic. I use it to tightline and it presents the rig efficiently and fights fish beautifully. The rod is solid enough for casting and the tip is sensitive enough for fighting the smaller fish on this waterway.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Reel seat Bought the 10 foot 2 weight for my local rivers nice rod but let down badly by not having a locking ring on the reel seat, I have bought fly rods for a lot less than this which are equipped with a much better fitting, Orvis need to do better on this

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best Nymphing rods out there I run a guiding company in Scotland called Alba Game Fishing and bought one of these as a back up to my Helios 3 nymphing rod. It it truly outstanding and I have grown to love it so much I fish with it constantly. I primarily go Euronymphing for grayling on medium sized rivers like the River Tweed and Annan, and in the last month have caught over twenty good sized fish in the 40-45cm range. Ive teamed this up with a Sage ESN and it balances perfectly without using any of the Sage counterweights. You can feel everything with this rod, even the subtlest of takes, and the blank is so forgiving when playing a lively bigger fish, protecting lighter tippets. Casting with nylon only and a team of tungsten jigs is easy, you can feel what's going on and no fly line is needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensitive, high quality rod: unbeatable for price Got this rod as a backup to my 10' 3 wt Recon, which is the best rod I've ever owned but broke due to user error (!), and this 10' 2 wt Clearwater has been incredible. (And the rod shop is fixing my Recon!). Fished it several times already and it's got amazing sensitivity in the tip and a strong butt section, I had no problem bringing in a few large fish in heavy current, and the flexing tip protected the 5x tippet. Incredible how even in windy conditions -- not ideal for euronymphing-- the rod could pick up strikes from even the small wild redbands I was catching. Beautiful slate gray blank, nice chrome guides, solid reelseat. For the price I can't imagine a better piece of equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Rod The Orvis Clearwater rod is great I’m new to fishing but it was an easy setup and a breeze to fish with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feel and awesome action Using this 10’ 2” weight for euro nymphing is small creeks and streams. Great action no matter what size you land.
