If you love steelheading with a single-hand rod but don't want to spend a fortune, the Clearwater 8-Weight 10' Fly Rod is the perfect solution.
Power, reach, and a rod designed in Vermont by Orvis rod designers with just the action you need.
Perfect for saltwater shore anglers as well, with the length to keep that backcast up off the beach.
Big flies, big reach, big fish at a price that will make you smile.
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 rod model would be traditionally used for, from medium-action small stream rods to medium-fast freshwater rods and fast-action big game rods.
