Throughout the brook trout's native range, intrepid anglers must contend with dense rhododendrons and thick canopies in order to find their hard-earned prize. The 6-foot, 2-weight Superfine Touch is the perfect way to wander those mountain streams, without having to worry about snags or finding room to backcast. Compact and light, it's the backpacking angler's dream come true. Supremely soft with a Full-Flex action, its short-distance casts load with minimal effort and fall to the water with grace, allowing you to fully enjoyand fully feeleach strike, each fight, and each fish. Made in Manchester, Vermont.

Superfine and Super strong -
By: Happyfisherman6 from N Ireland
When I was looking through the Orvis online catalogue I was drawn to the idea that I would get the 6'6" as I thought it would cast a bit further and be perfect for the small rivers that I fish.This wasn't to be as they were sold out and quite rightly so.I settled my mind that I would take a chance and buy the smaller 6 ft one.....this proved to be a great decision.This beauty casts a lot further than I could ever have imagined.It is light and I mean LIGHT and has backbone without sacrificing how delicate it feels in your hand.It's simply a great rod.Top marks Orvis :)

This rod is a true lightweight that has a backbone. I have not caught any large fish on it yet but I can feel that it will hold its own against a 15 inch trout if needed. Unlike some other very fine rods that you have to baby and be wary of damaging, this one is as tough as they come. That is comforting considering the rough terrain and bushes that surround the small streams that I fish. This Rod will survive to be passed to my son who is now five years old, and most likely to his kids when the time comes.

I got the superfine 765-4pc with the CFOII last summer and fished the small streams around house and with no complaint love casting this rod and the reel don't get no better I wanted something a little lighter so I went with the 602-3pc along with the CFOI and the 761-4pc with the CFOI reel I'm READY FOR SPRING. I have been fishing all my life I got into fly fishing about two years ago and its all the fishing I do now if you are like me new to the sport I can save you some time just go with ORVIS the Quality and customer service is hands down the BEST.
love my 2wt -

I picked up a 2wt for the small creeks in the San Gabriels and this rod has not disappointed. It casts beautifully in light-wind conditions and is perfect for taking into skiddish waters. Pick one of these up and you wont regret it.
Superfine rod -
Just got mine in the mail today. Not only is it a beautiful looking rod but it casts like a dream. It's action is so smooth and I like the screw on reel seat for the occasional 16"+ fish. Hope to really put it to the test this fall. Thank you Orvis for yet another great product.
One sweet rod & reel. -

A cast I will remember. 1.5 miles up Jeremy's Run (from the bottom) in the Shenandoah Mountains, and 25 feet above a mountain pool, I cast a #14 Henderson Light with my 6' 2 weight Orvis Superfine Touch with a CFO reel. The Henderson barely touched the water when a beautiful 6" Brookie grabbed it. I landed him, admired his beauty for just a few seconds, and let him go. A picture would have been "complicated" from my precarious perch on the rocks, but the memory will last forever. The Orvis Superfine Touch is the best of my many rods (which includes quite a few Orvis Rods) for wandering around the many Shenandoah Tout Streams. It lays out beautiful 30-40 foot casts to work the pocket waters I encounter,
Great Little Rod -
By: YellowstoneDan from Chester County, PA
I have used a Superfine 3wt for several years now as my lightweight rod and love the feel and performance of it. I wanted to get into an even lighter weight model and based on my experience with the 3wt, the choice was simple. I picked up the 2wt a few weeks ago and have already used it for small stream fishing near my home (in PA). The rod performs a lot like my 3wt, but I love the feel and sensitivity of the 2wt in my hand. I landed a 15 inch brownie on small water with ease. This 2wt is a great compliment to my collection of great Orvis rods.
My Go To Small Stream Rod -
By: captjim from Middletown, DE
I purchased this rod in July and it has become my "Go to" small stream rod. The rod casts so smoothly and without any effort I can make accurate pin point casts. It's small size is deceiving and has the backbone and power to handle 18' brown trout. I get compliments on its appearance even from non fly fishing people. Another great Orvis product
The Perfect Small Stream Rod -
By: FirstRise from Maryland, USA
The weight and length of this rod makes it feel like a child’s toy, but this perception quickly changes once you’re knee-deep in your favorite stream and armed with this little gem of a rod. Unlike some ultra-lights, this rod is neither too-still or "noodlely", but has the perfect combination of backbone and sensitivity. Casting is not at all fussy, just exceptional accuracy and feather-soft presentations. It will be difficult for Orvis to improve on this one!
