The new Orvis Clearwater 966-4 Fly Rod is the perfect choice as an all-purpose trout and smallmouth bass rod for medium to large rivers and as a light saltwater rod. This versatile Clearwater 6wt is a high quality performance rod that excels in every situation, whether you're launching streamers 70ft to that sweet spot against the bank or tossing bass bugs straight to their target. The added length of this 9'6" rod is ideal for fishing from a boat or kayak. The Clearwater 966-4 is a perfect balance of smooth power, responsiveness and line feel that will suit any casting style and exceed all of your expectations.
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.
