Product details

The Orvis Bamboo Adirondack Full-Flex Fly Rod is a 7 foot 6 inch, 2 piece, finely crafted traditional split bamboo fly rod made for a 5 weight line.

This rod is for the traditionalist fly fisherman who appreciates the look and feel of classic bamboo.

  • Personalized – This rod can be personalized for an extra fee.
  • Downlocking Reel Seat – A downlocking nickel silver reel seat with Vermont maple burl insert and a 6.5" full wells cork grip not only secures the reel but has a unique look as well.

Highly accurate, loads well in tight quarters. Great for a small, wild stream.

Glass rods help improve casting accuracy as well as protect smaller tippets when fishing for picky trout! This medium action glass rod will be perfect for fighting trout and delicately placing dry flies wherever you need them to be!

This rod is great for sight casting. Most sight casting is done in flats or for tailing reds. This rod will fair very well for you in a sight casting situation. Maybe even in a salmon stream as well.

If you're a nerd and read fly fishing magazines like I do, you'll see the Orvis Superfine Glass consistently awarded "#1 Glass Rod" year after year. Nothing can beat it in terms of accuracy at close range, precision, delicate fly placement/presentation, and a superior bend when that fighter is hooked. This makes it the go-to glass rod for seasoned anglers on small streams.
