    • Smooth, easy casting medium-fast action
    • Anodized aluminum reel seat
    • Quality reel seat and components

    • Limited Orvis Warranty for defects and craftsmanship 
    • Orvis cordura rod and reel case


    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.


    • 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 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.

    Kevin B (PA) | May 3rd, 2022
    I got this rod kit as a new fly angler. It has a great build quality and the incldued reel and line is great qualtiy for the price. Even though the reel isplastic it still has the feel of a more expensive reel.
