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.
  • Safe Passage rod tube with internal dividers.
