Details

Instead of the term “entry level,” we prefer to describe our new Encounter rod outfits as “affordable awesomeness.” Built for the hardcore angler, yet priced with frugality in mind, the Encounter rod series combines state-of-the-art rod design with a smooth, crisp performance—packaged with a large arbor Encounter reel, weight-forward floating line, backing, and leader. The 9' 5-weight Encounter rod outfit is easily the best value-priced outfit of its kind. This is the perfect backup for an experienced travelling angler or for a new angler who plans to spend most of their time on bigger trout waters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome rod for the money! Just bought this outfit last week. Showed up on the creek an hour from home with all my gear and realized I had forgotten my fly rod. Stopped in quickly at the local fly shop and bought this outfit cause I was desperate and it was affordable. After having one of the best evenings I've ever had fishing dry flies, this rod sold me! I never would have imagined this rod and reel setup working as well as it did so I used it again yesterday and just cannot say enough good things about it. I own almost every rod Orvis has ever made and this one fishes just as well and handles big fish in big water. Definitely well worth every penny!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it I bought this set so that I could go out and fish without having to use my boyfriends fast action rod. Definitely love it so far. The quality is definitely in the rod but the reel is nice too! Can't wait to take it to Montana!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could not ask for a better starter outfit! The Encounter outfit has performed beyond my expectation. Just after going on my first couple fishing trips I found this outfit to be extremely easy to use with a balanced feel and plenty of performance potential to tap into as I hone by fishing skill. Hands down a top outfit for anyone looking to start fly fishing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Encounter Outfits I'm really impressed with the Encounter outfits. These are perfect outfits for casting clinics and having used them in the past, they seem to be indestructible to the abuse 100-200 grade schoolers administer over the period of a day. I even like the Encounter reels! Light weight, great drag, top notch grips, and almost silent, these reels are tough and a perfect match to the rod. The Encounter rod is my favorite, at it's price point. There's nothing comparable on the market. I have people bring competitor's outfits to clinics, and after they cast the Encounter outfit, they are dumbfounded! I can't imagine what they would think about casting a Helios2, a Recon, or a Clearwater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family Fly Rods Wonderful product that will be used by the family for many years. Bought two Encounter 5-weight 9" combos as Christmas presents for my 12 and 15 years sons after we got got some fly fishing training this past summer. Even though this is generally marketed as a entry product, it is far better quality than what they trained on and it looks great with a nice travel case. Responsive rod and very smooth reel. It looked great coming out of the box as a present and the boys just loved the whole package. Hard to believe the rod and reel could be of this quality at this price. The boys reviewed the online Orvis fly fishing basics video as a refresher and started having fun. With the included cases it is easy for them to bring to take the combo on their bikes to local fishing spots. We now totally trust Orvis as a fly fishing resource and will look into an Orvis fly fishing course in our area this spring.
