Fantastic rod -

Well I thought I'd never pick up a better rod than the last orvis I bought but I was wrong again. Lovely action from this Clearwater rod that presents my tiny flies with ease. At 8'6" I needed a rod just a bit longer as I've changed from fast running water to slow to steady stream fishing only this year. Paired with my large abour Orvis 4 reel this works great. My friend tried it out in the afternoon for an hour or so and was very impressed with the whole setup. Great rod from Orvis with the no quibble guarantee of 25 years. Sorted.
best fly fishing experience ever -

the clearwater 4 weight 8'6" package is a dream ! I caught fish with my son the first trip, easily! I love the rod 's reaction time at the strike, its very smooth, and I was able to accurately cast wherever and however I wanted. I am very impressed, I'd fish this rod in much larger water than what I fish in and feel comfortable easily. I like the rod, reel, fly-line, essentially the whole package. It was one heckof of an investment in my fishing arsenal. Its the best bang for the money of any package IVE EVER SEEN IN FLYFISHING.... It does what it says! gahunter

Very easy to use, I was able to easily cast to the far side of the river.
Bang for your buck -

absolutely phenomenal rod for the price. I have yet to hit the river and not pull something out with this rod and the best part is how incredibly affordable it is
Awesome customer support!! -

I usually don't write reviews but I had to in this case. I ordered a Clearwater rod and reel combo and promptly received my rod but noticed my reel wasn't going to get shipped until Aug 1st. mind you I bought this combo for a fly fishing trip to Colorado. This reel wasn't going to get shipped until after I was supposed to leave for my trip. So I went online to Orvis chat and spoke with customer support to tell them my dilemma. After that Orvis stepped up and found my reel in a local store and shipped the reel out just in time for my trip to Colorado. I cannot tell you how happy I am about my purchase and the customer support that I have received from my first purchase from Orvis. I will be buying from orvis again in the future. This combo is well built and an excellent outfit for anyone getting into fly fishing.
great flyrod -

I've fished with this rod twice casts very smoothly, I like the way you can feel it loading. I'm new to fly fishing but feel like I made the right choice for this purchase. I would recommend this to other anglers.
8'6 Clearwater 4 weight -
A great rod for the chalk stream,especially when paired with the new Battenkill reel. Strong enough to deal with 3lb wild brownies and flexible enough to present your size 16 dry flies.

i bought this rod for pan size brookies in eastern Canada. Rod has great action and makes every fish feel like a trophy!
Quality a given! -
I was not disappointed when I unwrapped my Clearwater 4 weight. Not only is it light to the touch but also put together with what is obviously a great deal of attention to detail. I can't wait to move from casting to imaginary trout on my lawn to real fish in my favorite stretch of water!
