Crafted with high-quality materials, the Clearwater® 9' 12-Weight Fly Rod delivers unmatched performance and power. Its 9-foot length provides the perfect balance of strength and precision, making it ideal for casting large flies and fighting big fish. The 12-weight design offers a perfect balance of sensitivity and power, allowing you to effortlessly control your fly line and feel every bite.


Most dedicated tarpon anglers are inevitably traveling to pursue the legendary silver king. The Clearwater® 12-Weight 9' Fly Rod is the consummate partner for multiple setups and backup. At this price you can carry three for the price you would normally pay for a premium 12 weight and yet you not only get Orvis-designed fast action, specifically built for this application, but a 25-year Guarantee to boot. Hard to argue with that.

The new Clearwater® Rod Series is not just a cosmetic facelift, but a complete overhaul from the ground up by our Vermont rod designers. Everything has changed except the value. It's still the best fly rod you can buy for the money, but with a significant upgrade in performance and looks in a comprehensive series that covers every angler from small stream addicts to Skagit slinging two-handers. Each rod was designed with a purpose-built profile and action to handle the kind of fishing the rod model would be traditionally used for, from medium-action small stream rods to medium-fast freshwater rods and fast-action big game rods.
