Your always ready to fish with this 5-weight travel fly rod.

Clearwater Frequent Flyer 5-weight 9' Fly Rod

Details

A 9-foot 5-weight fly rod is pretty standard fare in trout towns, but our Clearwater Frequent Flyer 905-4 is anything but ordinary. Never before has there been such a quality rod at such an affordable price. With all-new profiles and tapers taken directly from our award-winning Helios technology, the 9-foot 5-weight Clearwater combines lightweight power with exceptional line control, resulting in a true multipurpose rod for trout bums and beyond.

We can all agree that it's not always convenient to bring your fly rod with you—unless it's built in seven pieces. Based on our long-running Frequent Flyer™ travel fly rods—but updated with our best-selling Clearwater® rod technology and cosmetics—our new Clearwater Frequent Flyers may spend weeks on end in the back of your car, but when you fish them, they'll feel like they never left your hand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Details Matter I would recommend the rod simply because it's difficult to find a true travel rod that fits in a suitcase. This one will but I may need to create my own rod case. The Orvis agent I contacted on-line told me overall length of the case for this 5 wt was 18". I believed him since I already own an Orvis 9 wt that is in a 19" Orvis case. Unfortunately this 5 wt came with a case that's 19 3/4 ", so I may have to build my self a case. The rod should actually fit in a 18" case. I've use a competitor's "travel rod" but it was not well constructed. This one is hopefully better-made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big power, small package Purchased the rod 1 week ago and have gone "unskunked" in 4 outings! Just throw the rod in a backpack and hit the trail. Stout enough for nymphing, high sticking, mending. 60 foot is no problem with great fly turnover fishing with dries. Move over other rods, this one is a keeper!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Travel Rod I bot a 5 weight travel rod to fish trout in the Rockies. Did everything asked of it. Tip flex is great in higher winds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Transport, Quality for $ This is my 4th Orvis Rod of which 2 are Frequent Flyers. I like the FFs because of ease of transport, both in car, plane, etc but also on the trail. I like to hike in to places and sometimes carrying a longer tube or an assembled rod can be a pain. Getting used to the tip flex vs the 25 yr old full flex (different maker) that it replaced! To me price is right--yes it is not a Helios--but for the smaller streams I fish all the extras the Helios offers aren't worth the significant extra $.
