Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rod I've used my 8'6" 5wt Clearwater rod throughout the mountains of Colorado, in the Cascades of Washington, and throughout the Oregon and it's never failed me. Others have noted that the 5wt is too middle of the road for a trout rod, but it's been absolutely perfect for me in a variety of conditions and locations when huntin' rainbows or browns. It's a great rod for the money no matter if you're a beginner or expert fly fisherman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid purchase Took this out for the first time and it worked great! Did well with ice on it as well. I bought the Clearwater rod as a package and it all works together well. A great introductory rod that I'm guessing will last for many years to come, be a great travel rod, and a good learner for others.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from breaks The fly rod broke twice, once while testing it on a roll cast, and another when using it 3 days later on a branch. It is very smooth and great action but I see why there is a warranty on it as this rod will break several times creating an inconvenience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Trout Rod This is a great trout rod for both small streams and large rivers. I use it in the Smokey Mountains and the Clinch River here in East Tennessee and it performs wonderfully with dry flies, dry/dropper, and nymph/indicator setups. I do want to mention if you plan on throwing heavy weighted streamers go with a 6 or 7 weight. Otherwise for the price this is an awesome trout rod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING! This was my first "REAL" fly rod and I absolutely love it. Definitely worth the money. On top of the great rod Orvis has exceptional customer service! A 25 year warranty to repair or replace for $30 makes this rod even more worth the money. Especially since I just broke the tip off of mine this morning.
