Superfine Glass Fly Rod

The Orvis 3-Piece Superfine Glass Fly Rod turns small stream fishing into a smooth and crisp experience that'll have you even more hooked than you were before. With this light glass rod in your hand, your fly becomes the siren's song to the unsuspecting trout 30 feet away.

This nimble rod helps your casting in cramped quarters, and the cork handle is easy on your hands and gives you crystal clear communication between the rod, the line, and your body. The up-locking cork and silver reel seat minimizes weight while giving your reel (sold separately) a secure fit.

The action can only be characterized as languid. With practice, the unhurried line feel will enable anglers of all abilities to feel the line loading. Once you know what will happen, it's easier to tweak your movement to send the fly singing through the air, even if it's a bit windy.

I've put it through the wringer

I purchased this rod and the #5 and they are both a hoot to cast. So much fun to make those almost effortless motions and watch the line stretch out. Admittedly, I’m an old guy, but I think anyone would enjoy this casual feel when angling.

Glass Is Not Dead

I've put it through the wringer

I own this rod in a 3 thru 5 wt. and it's hands-down the most fun rod I own for fishing dries. It's not going to throw tons of line with ease, but it's great for most streams I fish. The 3 and 4 wt are excellent at presenting dries and the soft, progressive flex allows you to load your rod in tight places. The 5 is a little more versatile and good for windier days. Glass rods make playing fish (even small ones) more fun and they are much harder to break than graphite. Unless pin-point accuracy is a must or you need to get lots of line out, these are way more practical and fun dry-fly rods.

I've put it through the wringer

Ever since purchasing this rod I can'€™t think of anything else I rather be doing than tossing a few bugs and a few brews back. The super fine is ideal for small creeks and rivers and close-range casting so perfect for Utah. The accuracy you get is amazing thanks to the supple slow-action taper coupled with a firm butt section makes the Superfine Glass a top-notch dry fly tool, however I think it could reasonably handle casting the extra weight and torque of throwing big dry flies (such as hoppers, Chernobyl ants and big stoneflies) and dry/dropper rigs. I swear I can lay a dry on a dime you feel it just going right where you want it. This rod delivers for sure and provides delicacy and allows you to fight fish with fine tippets. Love at first toss.

Great casting-fishing US made Glass

These rods are fun to cast, great to fish, helps to protect tippet and is TOUGH AS NAILS!! All made in the USA!! What a treat these rods are, not your grampa's glass rods at all. These cast well, are accurate wonderful in the short distance, but with some backbone to chunk a bigger cast for those afternoon breezes.

I have fished this rod and absolutely love it!! Smooth, precise and a blast to fish!!

Glass is not dead

The Orvis Superfine is a great fly rod. It proves that glass is not old technology and doesn't have to feel like a wet noodle. This rod in the 3 wt has got backbone and really fights fish well while protecting light tippet. Orvis really made a great rod.

Super fine

I've put it through the wringer

I'm definitely a big fan of this fiberglass rod. It was the first and only glass rod I've ever had, so I didn't really know what to expect. I fell in love with the softness right away, the feeling was completely different than graphite. Its a joy to cast a dry fly but will also huck the meat.
