The Orvis® Mission Spey and Switch rods are built in the U.S. using Helios™ 3 technology with a medium-fast-action blank to accommodate a wide variety of casting styles. This series of rods comes in a wide variety of sizes and weights to fit every angler’s style and fishing locale, whether that is fishing in tight spots or big water. The rods provide excellent line control and are offered in four- or six-piece designs.

Key Features

  • Orvis 25-year Guarantee – This warranty provides peace of mind for the lifetime of your rod.
  • Chrome SiC Stripping Guide & Snake Guides – The hard chrome striping snake guides provide minimal friction and added durability while keeping the rods lightweight.
  • Type III Anodized-aluminum Reel Seat – The anodized reel seat comes with a double-downlocking component to keep the reel solidly in place while keeping the reel seat protected from the elements when fishing all day.
  • Helios 3 Technology – The Mission rods use the Helios 3 technology to create a blank that tracks straight to the target to accurately land a fly where intended.
  • Rod Tube – The Mission comes with an orange rod tube to protect the rod while in storage and during travel.

Use Cases

  • 11’4” 3wt (114-3) is the most lightweight two-handed rod in the series. This is a trout-spey rod designed for swinging soft hackles and smaller streamers.
  • 12’ 5wt (125-4) is a trout-spey rod designed for fishing streamers and large flies on big water.
  • 13’6” 8wt (1368-4) is the sweet spot for two-handed fly rods. It’s designed for targeting big fish on big water. This model is the all-purpose two handed fly rod.
  • 14’ 9wt (149-6) was designed for fishing big salmon and steelhead rivers around the world.

Matt was so easy to work with. He answered all my questions and there were many. He offered detailed explanations for his recommendations and sold me exactly what I needed, nothing more and nothing less. He also gave me valuable information regarding the sport of fly fishing and not just the current equipment I was seeking to buy. It was an amazing experience. Thanks Matt!

Rylyn found a sale for the Douglas Sky G rod and recommended it. He said that this was the best rod in the market and so I bought it. We paired it with monic Trout Master fly line. I was not disappointed at all! The rod feels intuitive and natural to cast. I could cast more accurately and a longer distance than I ever did with my previous rod.

I recently purchased a pair of waders through Curated with Stefan’s help. They were very helpful and able to get me exactly what I was looking. Items were perfect for my price range and the days by the streams/lakes that I will spend my time at. I enjoy researching products on my own, and was worried Curated might take the fun out of things, but this service is great for people like me also. Whether you have an idea of what you want, or are just getting started looking I would highly recommend Curated, and Stefan!

Found a great deal on Curated for a Daiwa fishing pole. My sales representative, Josh, was very helpful in answering questions before the order. Even more impressive was how he and Curated responded when the rod was delivered broken (not their fault). They immediately helped guide me through the return process which provided me the confidence that this would be resolved without issue. New rod is on the way and I have already ordered a second one!
