Access 6-weight 9' Fly Rod—Tip Flex

Access 9' 6-weight fast-action fly fishing rods are defined by quality and value.


2¾ oz. 9', 4-piece, Tip-Flex Fly Rod for 6-wt. line.

For the traveling angler, this is the rod of choice for throwing sinking lines, big streamers, bass poppers, and heavy nymph rigs in freshwater or big baitfish patterns in saltwater. Built with a saltwater reel seat and our proprietary tapers and actions developed on Helios by our rod designers, the 906-4 is incredibly light and powerful, in fact as light and powerful as any rod we sell, but at a price that is about half the cost of our premium rods. This new series is extraordinary in price to performance ratio and once you cast it you'll realize why.

    I believe if a person was going to purchase a one Rod Combination (Rod, Reel, Line) that could do it all the Access Saltwater 6wt Fl/9Ft is it. Sensitive enough for trout/panfish, yet able to handle largemouth-Smallmouth Bass related fly fishing. Additionally it should handle light inshore Saltwater well, making it a best buy. Had to call Orvis for backup for help on fitting the 4 sections together for the first time as it was at first a liitle different (must follow instructions but not a problem). Casts beautifully.

    Purchased this rod as a backup bonefishing rod and primary bass/carp rod. But after landing a bonefish on it I might say it is now the primary bonefish rod. What a fight. You can really feel the fish on a 6 weight. Great action and performance for this versatile rod.

    I set this rod up with the Access IV reel and over-lined with 7 weight bass bug taper. It absolutely launches flies with little effort. I'm a sloppy fly caster but this rod seems to compensate perfectly for me. Besides the staff at Orvis Richmond once again were great and have kept me as a customer.

    Great decision to go with this rod. - 3/9/2013
    By: from San Diego

    A very good, multipurpose rod, for several different types of species fresh water and saltwater. I've used the fast action rod to cast a heavy shooting head, line in the surf and and the San Diego Bay, to catch halibut, croakers, strong fighting bone fish, and the 6WT is still light weight enough for a good fight from the surf perch. I use the same rod while going after bass and crappie in the same lakes. I've fished Colorado, for trout with a floating line on it, and made some pretty nice cast; (I'm not even that great of a fly caster). It's perfect for the sea going cut throat and salmon in the pacific in Pacific Northwest. This rod covers a large range, of different types of fishing.

    I've used this rod for reds, smallies and largemouth. Great feel, easy cast, and great for a battle. Plus, it floats even with a reel on it!

Access Fly Rods

Cast this rod once and you'll question the low price.
Cast it twice and you won't fish without it.

Pay more for remarkably lightweight performance? There is no longer a reason. The new Orvis Access™ Rod Series offers true premium-rod, weightless performance at a remarkably accessible price. The carbon-based composite blanks are impregnated with a new epoxy-based resin system with plasticizers for a stronger composite. This is a proprietary new material demonstrating an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, making these rods even lighter than some higher-priced models. Using proprietary tapers and actions perfected on Helios™ by Orvis rod designers over the past two years, Access rods offer a performance-to-price ratio unheard of in the industry until now. Access rods cast with the same power and precision as the highest-price rods on the market, are just as light if not lighter, and yet come at a price that is accessible to everyone.

Access rods feature:

  • New material with remarkable strength-to-weight ratio.
  • Lighter than most premium rods.
  • Remarkably smooth and precise casting stroke.
  • Root beer blank and woven-graphite carbon and champagne anodized aluminum gold reel seat.
