Product details

The Orvis Bamboo 1856 Fly rod is an 8-foot, 3-piece split bamboo rod for 5-weight line. Although this rod appears to be an antique classic, the 1856 is made to be fished. This rod is for expert anglers who love the feel and look of a classic bamboo rod.

Key Features:

  • Hollow Build – The hollow build means the rod is both light weight and has a quick rebound with less vibration and bounce, making for a more enjoyable fishing experience.
  • Progressive Flex – A progressive flex means the angler has the option to under-line for a faster feel, or over-line for a slower cast.
  • Down-Locking Reel Seat – A down-locking 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.

Use Cases:

  • 5wt 8ft is designed for trout.
