The Curated Take

This is a great product. It handles big fish very well and has great casting capabilities. This would be awesome for beginner to amateur fly fishers. The setup is a little bit on the heavier side for small stream and creek fishing but could still get the job done if need be. It also possesses a good drag system that could help in a pinch with the bigger unexpected fish.

The Orvis Clearwater fly rod outfit is a top notch entry level fly rod outfit. I would highly recommend this fly rod outfit to any person looking to get into fly fishing for the first time. Really great feeling and casting fly rod that will more than get the job done for new fly fishers. The most suitable use for this fly rod outfit if for a fly fisher who doesn’t fish every week. It’s great rod for fly fishermen who plan to fly fish every now and then. The reel is not extremely durable but if not used a lot its a decent reel with a good drag. The fly line could also use an upgrade for anyone who plans to fly fish very often.

Pros
  • Top notch entry level fly rod outfit
  • Great versatility for ease of casting and multiple techniques
  • Extremely durable fly rod
Cons
  • Smaller weight options not great for streamer fishing
  • Reel is die cast and not highly durable
  • Fly line is lower tier and does not cast well

This is a great introductory package for aspiring fly fishermen. Unlike other introductory packages, anglers will not outgrow this combination in a couple of years as their skills progress. In fact, more advanced anglers should even consider this if they are looking for a backup set up or looking to expand into other areas of fly fishing.

Pros
  • Includes rod, reel, and line
  • Easy casting rod
  • Durable Disc Drag Reel
Cons
  • Enrty level features on rod and reel
