Details

2⅛ oz. 8'6", 4-piece, Mid-Flex Fly Rod for 4-wt. line.

The 8-foot 6-inch rod is generally considered to be the centerpiece of anyone's rod closet. Manageable on smaller water, it has the length and power to handle larger rivers as well. This Access 4-weight version offers the sensitivity to enjoy small trout and the strength to handle the lurking bruiser. Our proprietary tapers and actions developed on Helios by our rod designers takes this combination to new levels and offers a lightweight, but powerful version of this great standard. If you can buy only one trout rod, this might very well be the one you need, but at these remarkable Access prices you can afford to buy a few. An astounding price for the quality.

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.
  • All chrome guides.
  • Sunburst wraps with gold tipping.
  • Gold ferrule alignment dots.
  • Saltwater reel seat with cork-and-rubber butt.
  • Super-grade cork handles.
