    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.

    I stand by the 5 star rating. I have had this rod since about the beginning of April 2020. I fished a lot on rivers at first to no avail. But caught my first crappie on a small pond. Ever since, I have caught fish every time I go out. It is great for a beginner looking to fish on the river or still-water. If you want to cast heavier flies, I would reccomend getting a heavier weight rod. This is a good rod for river or still-water fishing without a lot of brush or overhang. If you want a rod for small streams or small rivers, I would go with a smaller weight and length. But as a first, I am impressed. Thank you, Orvis and Reelflyrod for this purchase!

    It is exactly what I needed. And the reel came loaded with backing, flyline and leader ready to go. The flyline and the leader are what was given with the outfit. I do not know the quality of these things as I have just started fly fishing. I have already lost about 4 flies. Now this could be user error as I bought a 4x tippet for river trout fishing and I did not realize I needed to wet my knots. I also practiced casting in the street outside my house and damaged my flyline right where the weld is at on the flyline. So newbie mistakes. I like repairing stuff myself anyways. Aside from the newbie mistakes, I am heavily satisfied.

    I’ve had the outfit for a few months now. I received it as a Christmas gift. I’ve used it both on the river and on the lake. It has been wonderful! Great first experience to fly fishing and has seemed to be built well. Case is a great addition.

    Havnt had a chance to try it out yet, but looks and feels like good quality product. Like the carry case for the rod and was impressed the reel was loaded with line ready to fish. Can't wait for spring!
