Rugged Stream Thermometer

Fly Fishing Thermometer


During the season, a stream thermometer can tell you when salmon will run. Salmon start to run at 30°F, at 40°F they will negotiate obstacles, but between 50/60°F they will be most active. Our indispensable fly fishing thermometer has a flat black metal housing for non-glare protection, a clip for attaching to your pocket, and a split ring for attaching to a lanyard or pin-on reel. Fly fishing thermometer measures both Fahrenheit and Centigrade.

    Not Up to Orvis Standard - 8/25/2014
    By: from LaCrosse WI

    I was disappointed --- metal sheath that protects the thermometer has a screw top that unscrews on its own when attached to a the tether. I got lucky as a client saw it drop off the first time but the second time I wasn't as fortunate. Based on other reviews with similar issues I should have skipped Orvis this time but I didn't even bother reading them as it's such a simple item. My fault... But this is a product that I don't believe lives up to the Orvis standard.

    So far, so good. Tested it out in my fridge and glass of ice water. Seems to work fine.

    By: from Great Falls MT

    This little thermometer is both stylish and functional. Lightweiht, rugged and easy to read. I have an older thermometer but wanted to update it. This thing is dead on accurate. A must for matching the stream conditions to your fly.

    In a sturdy case, easy to read, accurate and fast. Great buy for the money. Don't fish for trout without it.

    Excellent Value - 4/9/2014

    This thermometer seems pretty well constructed. The price point really sweetened the deal and I think it is an excellent value. I put a tiny dab of blue loctite on the threads and that should help prevent any unwanted loosening of the aluminum housing of the thermometer.

    Works Great - 3/31/2014

    It doesn't weigh much, but it's rugged enough that I don't have to worry about it breaking in my vest.
