ORVIS CLEARWATER 103-4 NYMPH FLY ROD OUTFIT
The Clearwater 3-Weight 10' Fly Rod is specifically designed to enhance European nymphing tactics. Its light sensitivity and reach offer the perfect rod for maintaining contact with a multiple-fly nymphing rig. Given the new popularity of this technique, the Clearwater 103-4 coupled with a Euro Nymph line is an exceptional outfit offering reduced line sag and better contact for quicker reaction to subtle takes.
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.

- 10' 3-weight

This rod came with the orvis tactical nymph line and leader all rigged and ready to go. No fishies on my first outing but this is a definite upgrade from a reddington crosswater that I broke. Still learning nymphing but the sensitivity of this rod is amazing!
