    A Disciple of FlyFishing - 2/26/2014
    By: from DeRidder, LA

    Since 1997 when I started in Seminary in Kansas learning to flyfish at the Orvis store in Olathe became my mediation time away from book learning and it continued to be so throughout my 30 yrs. of ministry and now being in my retirement years it still is. My Orvis rod (Rocky-Mountain 4wt -Silver Label) that I bought in 1997 is still the only rod I have & use. The new 'Clearwater Fly-Line' works so well with this old rod that I wouldn't have any other...I have both the 3wt & 4wt lines and have had nothing but great results casting any type fly in both cold or hot weather for all types of fish here in Louisiana... Thank you Orvis for making an affordable fly-line that works superbly both in casting and feel. I strongly recommend this fly-line for both the novice or the experienced won't be disappointed.

    Great for price - 1/31/2014

    I purchased a very nice 3wt outfit but the line that came with it was quite lacking. I didn't want to spend a lot as I don't plan on using a 3wt an awful lot other than for bluegill. The clearwater looked like a good option. I was very impressed when I received the line. Great quality, good slickness, and I love the loop. This line has little memory which is nice. If you have an outfit that you don't use all the time but still want a quality line without breaking the bank, this is a great choice

    Great Floating Line - 10/7/2013

    The Clearwater floating fly line is a great buy! One great feature of this line is its slickness. I normally use my fly rod to catch bass and panfish, and this line does its job.

    Good line - 9/7/2013

    My friend was given a used 5wt rod and reel that needed new line. He is just getting into Fly fishing so I ordered him the Clearwater line. I was impressed at how this cheaper line preformed. Casts very easy, floats well, and seems to be a good beginner line (if there really is such a thing as a beginner)
