    ORVIS ENCOUNTER II FLY REEL : 4-6WT

    The Orvis Encounter II Fly Reel is attractive, rugged, and most importantly, has a beefy drag system. These reels are constructed to take plenty of abuse and still perform smoothly. Encounter reels feature a large arbor design to retrieve line faster and help keep line memory free.

    Easily converted to either left or right-hand retrieve, Encounter fly reels have 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 or two in the bag, the new Encounter II Large Arbor can handle anything a machined reel can, and is a great performance value in entry level reels. Orvis Encounter is a perfect choice for an affordable reel with an excellent drag system.

    REEL FEATURES:

    • Attractive, durable composite frame and spool
    • Large arbor for fast line retrieval
    • Powerful disc drag system
    • Easily converted to either left or right-hand retrieve
    • Positive click drag knob for consistent settings every time
    ORVIS WF FLOATING FLY LINE

    Orvis WF floating fly lines are built a half-size heavier to provide extra help loading the rod, casting larger flies, and handling the wind. A compact head helps to transfer energy more efficiently, load the rod in close, throw tighter loops, and turn over flies. This is the perfect choice for the newer fly fisher or those anglers that don't mind making casting a little bit easier.

    This is a quality rod for the price. You’re not going to get the most delicate presentations, but it’s accurate and will send your flies the distance.

    Very smooth and reliable for beginners and just getting into fly fishing. You want something that is cheaper starting out but you also want something reliable and this is it.

    Great entry level setup. Only complaint is it does not come with the ClearWater flyline as advertised and shown in picture. For that reason I give it a 4 star.
