2019 Orvis Clearwater 905-4 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.

I purchased this rod because a 9' 5WT somehow avoided my collection, and I wanted an "all around" rod I could use anywhere for freshwater. I was intrigued by the new tapers Orvis touted and let me tell you, it was worth the hype! Very fast rod (to me) and powerful enough to send large flies with authority. It is my go-to every day rod for freshwater or small inshore species - even panfish have been a blast on this rod. Great rod and great service!

Great action rod by Orvis especially for the price. Great all around rod with protective carrying case

This series of rods have never let me down. Cast good, durable and you have the Orvis warranty, can’t ask for a whole lot more.
