The Curated Take
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.
- Top notch entry level fly rod outfit
- Great versatility for ease of casting and multiple techniques
- Extremely durable fly rod
- 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
