The new Clearwater® Rod Series is not just a cosmetic facelift, but a complete overhaul from the ground up by Orvis' 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.
9' x 5wt
The Clearwater 5-Weight 9' Fly Rod is a standard for western rivers and bigger eastern water. Not only does it have the length to reach out and control drifts and the power to reach far banks, but the line weight to handle big trout and light bass. Firing a big streamer up and across a big river and reaching out to mend the line and control the drift is right in this rod's wheelhouse. Throwing big attractors with droppers, or big hoppers in the early fall is the perfect task for this rod. If big water and big flies are called for, then the Clearwater 905-4 is the weapon of choice at a price that will keep a lot of travel money in your pocket.
9' x 6wt
The Clearwater 6-Weight 9' Fly Rod is a stout trout and light bass fly rod that can handle big, heavy streamers, big hair poppers, dropper setups, and nymph rigs with ease. This is a great rod for pounding the banks from a drift boat or dropping poppers on the edge of lily pads. This is a must-have rod in Alaska for throwing mouse patterns and drifting egg patterns and flesh flies to big rainbows. The Clearwater 906-4 has the backbone to do the job and then some. There are times when conditions call for big flies to catch big fish and this rod is designed for just that.
9' x 8wt
The Clearwater 8-Weight 9' Fly Rod joins the Orvis 908-4 arsenal as the most popular big game rod model for species from big freshwater bass to bonefish, stripers, and false albacore. Any traveling angler, whether headed to the tropics, Bristol Bay, or South America, needs a 908-4 and the Clearwater is not only a great choice in the quiver, but is also a spectacular backup given the remarkable price point. If ever there was trip insurance, this rod is it, but never doubt the fact it is built to be the primary backed by a 25-year guarantee to prove it.
