The Best Fly-Fishing Rods in the Industry: Browse our large selection of premium fly rods, spinning rods, fly rod combos, and fly-fishing outfits to find the perfect setup for any species or budget. With more than 150 years of rod building experience, it’s no wonder anglers look to Orvis for the highest-quality fly rods in the industry. Our fly rods are the best on the market, the culmination of cutting-edge technology, precision, and expertise. Explore our collection and find exactly what you're looking for to equip your next fly-fishing adventure. Discover a fly rod for every excursion—saltwater, freshwater, Spey casting, small creeks, and warm-water adventures. When you’re ready to choose a new fly rod, start by determining which weight of fly rod you need, based on your target species. If you’re interested in mid-sized or larger trout, look for a 4-, 5-, or 6-weight fly rod. For bass, look at a 6- or 7- weight fly rod. Steelhead and salmon will require a 7-, 8-, or 9-weight fly rod. Then think about length. Rods in the 8’6” and 9’ range are the most versatile and most common. But small stream anglers tend to like easy-to-manoeuvre rods in the 6’ to 7’ range. Finally, consider other aspects of your fishing to determine which rod will suit you best. Orvis designs and produces fly rods that fulfil the specific needs of expert anglers, as well as affordable, incredibly well-made fly rods that welcome newcomers to the sport. We take great pride in outfitting fly fishermen and women around the globe, as we have for well over a century. Our goal remains the same as it was in the beginning—providing a superior collection of quality fly rods at reasonable prices for the discerning angler.
