2019 Orvis Clearwater 103-4 Fly Rod
The new Clearwater Fly Rods are completely redesigned from top to bottom. With a new color scheme and Helios 3-ish cosmetics, there's no mistaking that these rods are a significant upgrade. Orvis has tailored each rod with a Medium, Medium-Fast, or Fast Action depending on the model and its intended uses.
These seriously attractive rods showcase black-chrome blanks with white accents, quick rod i.d. labeling (also just like the H3's), chrome snake guides, chrome stripping guides with ceramic inserts, and black-nickel aluminum reel seats. They look great as great as they cast. A whopping 27 models from 3â€“12 weight will be available including eight two-handed rods along with specialized models like one for musky and another for tight-line nymphing. All rods are 4-pieces except for 5-piece 14'0" nine and 15'0" ten weights.

Purchased this Orvis Clearwater Rod to use in the mountain lakes of the Eastern Sierra', I and my son Float Tube this lakes numerous times during the season. I have an older 4wt Orvis Clearwater rod that has performed great in the past. Wanted to go to a 3wt since most of the fish are in the 1 to 3 pound range so the lighter line weight will work out great. Quality of both the Fit and Finished of the Rod is what is expected for Orvis, will be using the Rod for it's first trip over the 4th of July holiday weekend. I do expect the Rod to perform as well as my other Orvis Rod. Price point for the quality of the Rod is excellent, have seen higher priced Rods that do not have the same quality of this Orvis Rod.
