ORVIS CLEARWATER 905-4 FLY ROD OUTFIT KIT: 9’0” 5WT
The Orvis Clearwater 905-4 Fly Rod Outfit features the new Orvis Clearwater 9'0" 5wt Fly Rod, Orvis Clearwater II Fly Reel, and Orvis Clearwater WF floating fly line, Clearwater cordura rod tube, Orvis braided dacron backing, and Orvis tapered leader, shipped professionally rigged and ready to fish...just tie on a fly!
The new Orvis Clearwater 905-4 Fly Rod is the perfect all-purpose trout rod for rivers, ponds, and lakes of all sizes. Not only does it have the length to reach out and control drifts and the power to reach far banks, but the line weight to handle big trout and smaller bass. Firing a big streamer up and across a big river and reaching out to mend the line and control the drift is right in this rod's wheelhouse. From throwing big attractors with droppers, big hoppers in the early fall, or delivering delicate dry flies at 80 feet, the Clearwater 905-4 is the weapon of choice that will still leave some cash in your pocket.
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.

Chatted with the online pro about my first kit. After a lot of great advice, I landed on this 9ft 5wt Clearwater kit. Took it out fishing this past weekend it it works like a dream. Line and leader are already on there, which is nice for a noob. Basically tie on your tippet, tie on your fly and get after it. Super pleased with the cost/performance. There is no hook keeper on the rod which is a hassle but if you loop your line back on your reel and up to the first eye, it will keep your line out far enough that you dont have to fight with your rod to get the leader/tippet out. Service from RFR is great!

Bought this last year for my first fly fishing experience trip to Montana with friends. Staff was very helpful getting me set up and received quickly. Rod and reel worked great even after a nasty fall in the rocks where the rod came apart, but no damage at all. Being a first time fly fisherman can't really compare to other rigs, but I had no issues.

Super service. This is my first Orvis product and I believe it is the best fly rod and reel you’ll get for the money.

Needed to wait a but before writing this review because I wanted to have some use on this combo. So far I think it is great! The value is defiantly there and doesn't hurt the REEL FLYROD also has discount opportunities. The whole setup works well and very happy with this purchase.

I was very pleased with the quality of this Orvis Rod/Reel Combo especially at this price point. The 25 yr guarantee is also a big plus. It was a Christmas gift to my son-in-law so that we can enjoy some quality fly fishing in the spring.

After doing quite a bit of research on rods I settled on the Orvis Clearwater and I was not disappointed. This combo is an excellent value for the money.

I used a friend’s Clearwater rod and reel and I was amazed at its quality and responsiveness. I ordered it from ReelFlyRod.com and it arrived within 2 days. Can’t wait to get it out on a North Carolina river in two weeks.

This is a great rod combo for the price. I have been fly fishing for years but mostly saltwater and wanted a nice all around freshwater rod without breaking the bank. This clearwater outfit does just the trick. It is super responsive and I have had great success fishing trout streams as well as large lakes for Bass.

Beautiful! I can not wait to try it out!
