    From Wisconsin smallies and Wyoming cutthroats to Jersey strippers, Floridian bones, and Bahamas tarpon.

    Remember to breathe when you jump a 125-pound tarpon in Islamorda, land a good-sized brown on the Provo, or fight a feisty rainbow while you wade in a high-mountain Montana lake. The Orvis Clearwater 4-Piece Fly Rod casts with power and accuracy, without losing any feel, for a variety of species in rivers, lakes, or streams. The Clearwater rods come specific for freshwater or saltwater, and all rods feature Helios technology for lighter weight and more response with flex profiles that are well-suited for each rod's application.

    The four-piece configuration makes it easy to travel or hike with while its emerald green graphite blank, dark olive wraps with silver tipping, and chrome snake guides round out the Clearwater's fine features. A gunsmoke aluminum reel seal provides improved durability and longevity especially on the Clearwater's saltwater rods. Orvis also gave its saltwater rods a cork and rubber fighting butt and a full wells handle (handle B) which helps to balance the rod and offer comfort when you fight fish. All rods include a green Cordura tube with divided interior and carry handle for protection during transport or storage.

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Bought this as a gift for my brother he absolutely loved it and it was exactly what he thought. it was super light even with 9wt and incredibly responsive.

    Nice and Responsive!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Have this rod in a 5 wt and love how versatile and responsive it is. Paired it with the Orvis Battenkill Fly Reel and they have been working like a charm together.

    Great Value

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought the 9 ft. 5 wt. Orvis Clearwater as part of my first setup and I love it. I have probably used this rod on the water at least 100 times, both in salt and fresh water. The Clearwater is a medium action rod that has been a great all around trout rod for casting dries, nymph rigs and even medium-large streamers.

    The only complaint I have about this rod is the double screw on the reel seat sometimes gets stuck and is difficult to realign.

    9ft 5wt Clearwater rod

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Incredible rod for the price, only thing that irks me is that the dots on the ferrules don't line up correctly with the line guides.. I suppose it could be expected from a product made in China, I would rather have no dots on the rod sections at all if they're going to be off.
