Quite possibly the ultimate small-stream dry-fly rod. From snobby spring creek rainbows to hyper-aggressive high-elevation brookies, the Superfine Touch 763-4 was designed with trout bums in mind. Smooth loading with a slow, Full-Flex action, it's a laid-back rod that packs enough punch to make all the casts, is long enough to provide effective line control, yet doesn't require much room for a backcast. Perfect for backcountry boulder hopping, early morning trico hatches, and everything in between. Made in Manchester, Vermont.

I LOVE this little rod and reel. My wife and I just returned from our annual trip to the Black Hills fly fishing. This set up was perfect for their small streams and handled some nice 14-16 in Browns nicely and casts tiny drys like a dream. I let my wife use my new rod while was untangling a train wreck. Hers is on order! Good job Orvis!
Lovely rod but not very durable -
By: GraylingChaser from Two Rivers, AK
First, the good: this rod is absolutely lovely to cast and the aesthetics are excellent. It's a beautiful rod. That said, I've now broken it twice. On Arctic Graylings, no less. I've never broken another rod so I don't think it's just me. Here in interior Alaska our fishing season is short and intense and to go without a rod for a few weeks puts a big bite into the season. I also don't want to risk breaking it again on the river. So, I'm not going to be getting it repaired this time, and will be fishing another manufacturer's rods. It'd be a nice rod if it weren't so fragile.
Precision casting -

If you fish small streams, drop everything and get this rod. The Superfine Touch is the best rod I have had the pleasure of owning. Not only can you get to those tight spots, when you hook a fish, you are totally connected with the fish. If extra distance is needed, this rod will throw a line 40 feet or more. Any experienced fly fisherman will agree that presentation is the most important element in casting and the Superfine excels in this category.
Best small stream rod ever -

This rod is absolutely fantastic for what it's designed to do. In small streams and rivers it roll casts beautifully, using it's full flex technology to the advantage of the fisherman. Beautifully crafted rod.
Great rod! -

I couldn't be happier with this rod. It's perfect for dry flies on small stream. I love chasing brookies on mountain streams and this rod paired with the CFO reel is perfect.

Purchased this fly rod for my fiancé with the gift personalized for a small fee. She is very excited for us to take lessons from the local Orvis store.
Wonderful rod -

Received this rod as a gift. Partnered it with a Battenkill1 reel and Hydros Superfine line. What a combo. The rod casts extremely accurately, and combined with the line and reel weights a quarter of what my 9 foot 4wt nymphing rod and 5wt multi-purpose rods weigh! I have a new favorite! Thanks Orvis
Superfine 7'6"3 st. -

I bought this rod last year and took it to Boulder Creek. It was perfect. I also used this rod on the trout streams of western Virginia. It hs become my favorite freshwater rod. I paired it with the Hydros Reel and I thought it had better balance than the Battenkill.
Great Rod!!! -
I Bought this rod for my significant other and he is in love how light weight it feels and the way it flexes with your every move! I would highly recommend this rod to any fly fisherman it is a great gift.
Fantastic...just fantastic. -

Went down to Manchester to the Orvis shop with my dad to buy a couple new rods & reels. I had my heart set on the 6' 2-weight Superfine, but totally fell in love with the 7'6" 3. Paired with a CFO I reel, this rod casts beautifully. Perfect amount of backbone with flex you can feel in the grip.
