    This Orvis Clearwater II Fly Reel comes fully loaded with premium Orvis Dacron Backing, a quality Orvis Clearwater WF Floating Fly Line, and Orvis Tapered Leader, professionally rigged and ready to fish!

    The Orvis Clearwater Fly Reels, New for 2019, may be the best bargain value on the market in this price range. Featuring a powerful, smooth drag system and a new, stronger and lighter frame, the new Orvis Clearwater is tough and attractive, in a lightweigth reel to perfectly balance modern fly rods. Two years in design and development delivers with a powerful inline, Rulon to stainless, stacked disc drag that can hold its own with high-performance machined reels. The New Orvis Clearwater Fly Reel has the great classic look of a fully machined reel, and more importantly, has the guts of a much higher-priced fly reel.

    Easily converted to either left- or right-hand retrieve, the Orvis Clearwater II Fly Reel has a positive click drag knob for consistent settings every time. Whether you're looking for your first large arbor, fishing on a budget, or want a spare reel or two in the bag, the new Orvis Clearwater Large Arbor II Fly Reel can handle anything a machined reel can and completely changes the game in die cast reels. A perfect reel to use as a backup rod or if you are looking for an affordable reel with an excellent drag system.


    • Updated New Die Cast Reel Design
    • Powerful Inline, Rulon to Stainless, Stacked Disc Drag System
    • Positive Click Drag Knob for Consistant Settings
    • Line Weight: 4-6
    • Weight: 5.5 oz
    • Diameter: 3 3/8"
    • Color: Stealthy Matte-Gray Powder-Coat Finish
    • Large Arbor
    • Reel Capacity: 20lb WF5 at 100 yards


    Orvis Clearwater WF floating fly lines are built a half-size heavier to provide extra help loading the rod, casting larger flies, and handling the wind. A compact head helps to transfer energy more efficiently, load the rod in close, throw tighter loops, and turn over flies. This is the perfect choice for the newer fly fisher or those anglers that don't mind making casting a little bit easier. Clearwater lines feature Integrated Slickness Technology to shoot line further and have a front welded loop for quick rigging changes. Whether you're throwing terrestrials to picky fish or casting smaller streamers to an aggressive feeder, you can count on the Orvis Clearwater Fly Line to get the job done.  You'd be hard pressed to find a better fly line at such a great price.


    • Designed to make effortless casts and throw tight loops
    • Built a half-size heavy to help load the rod 
    • Compact head turns over larger flies
    • Built with Integrated Slickness—a patented additive for reduced friction
    • Welded loop for easy leader changes
    • Positive Line ID to easily identify line weight

    See pics of Clearwater reels 17 years old. They have been dragged in the grass,rocks, dunked in the river and pond weekly and still work. Impressive and indestructible. (Have pics to add. Let me know)

    Excellent reel!
    Michael Ferguson (OH) | September 1st, 2021
    This is my first Orvis reel and based on the quality and performance (especially at this price point), it will not be my last. Very smooth system. Quite honestly, it is all I will really ever need for freshwater flying, in this weight range. When I get a heavier weight rod, I will buy the Clearwater IV. Great reel!

    This is my third Clearwater 11 reel. I like the sturdiness of the reel and enjoy being able to get it loaded with line. Great customer service and prices from the REELFLYROD team.

    Very solid 5 wt reel. Very sturdy and solid reel overall. Casts very smooth and coming preloaded makes it even better.

    Was looking for a 4wt to replace my old Ross reel. This reel has a great drag system on it. Love the large Arbor when retrieving. Broke it in on the San Juan river. Again love the drag system on this reel, worth every penny spent and then some.

    Very solid reel and line
    Eric (NY) | February 25th, 2021
    I was having trouble narrowing down what reel I wanted. I found a lot of the cheaper ones had primarily plastic parts. This reel is very solid and sturdy. The fact that it comes pre-loaded with quality line and backing makes this an awesome value. If you're looking for a particular color backing, note that mine came with neon green and not the orange shown.

    Great Reel for Me
    Chadd (Virginia) | January 4th, 2021
    Considered many different reels, but at the end of the day settled on this and am very happy. Everything you need and quality build for a beginner like me. Additionally was happy the reel came ready to go when received. Very happy.

    Purchased this pre-loaded reel as a gift for my brother to get him a beginner setup (pairing it with a TFO NXT Black Label 5 weight). Order arrived very quickly. Initial impression is that it's a great reel with good line - for the price, will be a great starter kit. Highly recommend.
