The new Clearwater Rod Series is not just a cosmetic facelift, but a complete overhaul from the ground up by Orvis's 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 taper and action to handle the specific fishing situations that each rod model is designed for. The action of the Clearwater rods progress from from medium-action small stream rods to medium-fast freshwater rods and continue up to fast-action big game rods.
