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.
