Product details

Part of Clearwater's Switch & Spey series of rods, the Orvis® Clearwater® Two-Handed Fly Rod is thoughtfully designed for the value-minded angler wanting to get into two-handed casting or someone who needs a dependable backup to their favorite rod. The series ranges from lighter trout spey styles to heavier rods that are perfect for salmon and steelhead.

Key Features:

  • All-water Use – This rod is crafted with black-nickel aluminum reel seats for durability and all-water use.
  • Alignment Dots – Having these on the blank aid in faster and easier rigging.
  • Medium-fast Action – A medium- to fast-action rod accommodates a wide range of casting styles.
  • Chrome Snake & Stripping Guide with a Ceramic Insert – These are quality components for a more premium feel.
  • Peace of Mind – This rod is backed by a 25-year Orvis warranty.

Use Cases:

  • 11'4" 3-weight is a trout spey rod for medium to large river systems.
  • 11'4" 4-weight is a trout spey rod for medium to larger rivers where an angler needs a little extra reach and power over the 3 weight.
  • 12' 6-weight is a lightweight rod well suited to two-hand casting for summer run and Great Lake steelhead.
  • 11' 7-weight is a Clearwater 117-4 switch rod is for those who like swinging flies for steelhead in the Great Lake tributaries or surfcasting to New England stripers.
  • 13' 7-weight is a truly versatile spey rod that can handle large rivers and smaller systems with big fish. This is a great option for those who spend long hours on the water.
  • 11' 8-weight is a 118-4 and a great option that offers all the versatility of a switch rod. This is the rod for swinging large rivers or overhead casting in the surf.
  • 13'6" 8-weight is the do-it-all rod in the lineup; able to handle large fish but not be unwieldy in hand.
  • 14' 9-weight is a big-water spey rod for those who want the power to cast long Scandi lines or heavier Skagit-style lines, but something a little lighter than the longer heavier 15’ 10wt rod.
  • 15' 10-weight is a powerful rod for big rivers and big fish. Everything from Alaskan King Salmon and Scandinavian Atlantic Salmon are on the to-do list for this rod.

many folks will target salmon the swing and with a switch/spey/double hand setup to cover big water and lots of ground at one pass. This would be a super solid option and not crazy expensive in the world of double hands for you to target Salmon with
