    Orvis gets it.

    Snap your Orvis Encounter Complete 4-Piece Outfit together, head to your local river, and start catching fish as soon as you free your line from that tree you'll inevitably back cast into. The included rod is Orvis' entry level Encounter fly rod, which has a smooth action and comfortable cork handle to help novice anglers pin down their casting technique, and it comes set up with a composite reel with a stainless steel disc drag. The reel can be converted to either a left- or right-handed retrieve and is pre-spooled with a weight-forward fly line and leader.

    Great Beginner Rod

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

    I gave this as a gift, but he was so psyched on it I'm considering getting one for myself. Comes with everything you need and nothing you don't. I got him the 5 Weight, 9ft, perfect for Maine and Utah fishing, looking forward to my own!

    First Fly Rod Setup

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is the first fly rod and reel I have owned and it's treated me very well. Comes with everything you need to get out on the river, nothing too fancy here, but a very effective rod. Have used in the Uintas, Provo River, and out in Colorado on the Roaring Fork.

    Great Start Up Kit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The rod has a slower action which really lets you feel the line load and unload. The rod is missing alignment dots. I added my own with a paint marker. Reel comes ready with the line, backing, and leader. Out of the package, the nut to hold on my reel was sticking in the threads. A few drops of lubricant had it spinning nicely. Since it doesn't come with a reel/rod combo case, you might consider buying a separate reel case. If you're looking for a combo that you won't grow out of too quickly this is a great value.

    Great deal for the price

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

    Overall very happy with this combo for the price. I purchased both the 6wt and another 5wt and I am very happy with my choice. Rod feels high quality and snappy.

    Great beginner rod!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I just started fly fishing this year and this rod has worked really well for me! Orvis has some great products and this is a great option if you don't want to spend $300 for the Clearwater.

    Great beginner rod

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

    I bought this as a gift for my friend. She is new to the sport but its proving to be a great rod for her to learn, but one that she won't out progress for a few years.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Luke, one of my customers, recently got the Orvis Encounter Complete 4-Piece Outfit. He went out the other day and had some luck! This complete rod package is perfect for someone looking to get into the sport or for for a second rod or just looking to save a buck. Orvis makes a quality product and casts like a dream!

    Wrong package shipped

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I ordered the 9' 8 weight rod and received the 6 weight encounter package instead. The box was clearly labeled by Orvis but the Backcountry tag listed it as the 8 weight set up. A little disappointed as Backcountry is usually great and I ordered this for the coming weekend.
