Built by a long proud line of American Master Craftsmen

THERE IS A PERCEPTION OUT THERE THAT ORVIS RODS ARE EXPENSIVE.


Some are. There is a significant amount of skill, knowledge, experience, and technology that go into those rods in the hands of a master craftsman. But those same master craftsmen are the architects, and in many cases the builders, of every Orvis rod no matter what the price. When you buy an Orvis fly rod, there is a family of rod builders, many of whom have been here for decades, that take personal pride in the building of that rod. When you buy an Orvis fly rod, you have the satisfaction of knowing there's a long, proud line of master craftsmen standing behind it. Therein lies the priceless difference between heirloom and obsolescence.
