Shop Staff Notes: The Orvis Clearwater Fly Line is a good, basic line designed with the beginner in mind and is not a bad choice if your budget is tight or you are just starting out and are not too sure you want to spend a bunch of money just yet. We will say this, if you have it in your budget to spend $30-$50 more on a fly line, you will get a LOT more performance and length of service from any of the lines that cost between $79 and $99. They will have enhanced coatings for slickness and durability, two to three color schemes which make it easier to reference your line length to help in casting and have stealthier presentations and have much more refined tapers to aid in casting and fishing and will float higher in the water. That being said, you will do just fine with this line if your budget is under $50.
