The Orvis Clearwater Travel 8-Weight 9′ 6-Piece Fly Rod joins the Orvis 908 arsenal as the most popular big game rod model for species from big freshwater bass to bonefish, stripers, and false albacore. New convenient 6-piece easily breaks down into two equal sections for quick transport from spot to spot. With a rod tube at just 22½”L, it easily fits into a duffle, pack, or under the car seat. Any traveling angler, whether headed to the tropics, Bristol Bay, or South America, needs a backup rod, and the Clearwater 908-6 is the perfect solution. If ever there was trip insurance, this rod is it, but never doubt the fact that it is built to be the primary rod, backed by a 25-year guarantee to prove it. The new Clearwater Rod Series is not just a cosmetic facelift, but a complete overhaul from the ground up by our Vermont rod designers. Everything has changed except the value. It’s still the best fly rod you can buy for the money, but with a significant upgrade in performance and looks in a comprehensive series that covers every angler from small stream addicts to Skagit slinging two-handers. Each rod was designed with a purpose-built profile and action to handle the kind of fishing the rod model would be traditionally used for, from medium-action small stream rods to medium-fast freshwater rods and fast-action big game rods.  Designed in Manchester, VT. Assembled in China.

Rod Outfits include:  Rod, Reel, Line, appropriate size and amount of colored, Dacron Backing all spooled up, ready to go and with a rod tube and rod bag and reel case.  The reel will be spooled up Left-Hand Retrieve, unless you specify right-hand retrieve in the Notes at check out. Also, let us know in the Notes about your line preferences if the outfit has that option.  FREE Shipping on these Rod Outfits -use the promo code: ccfsfreeship. (Another $25-$30 in savings!)

Shop Staff Notes The Orvis Clearwater Travel 9’ 8-Weight 6-piece Fly Rod is a great rod to take on your “family” vacation -when you really know it’s a “fly fishing” vacation for you! This sweet casting rod packs down so small, you could easily slip it into you carry-on bag. We got to admit, this rod casts great and would be fine for your primary rod if your budget was under $300. We think of this rod more as a back-up rod, your lender rod (when you’re fishing buddy or family member doesn’t have one of their own) or as your primary rod on a trip where the fly fishing won’t be the main focus. Being an 8-weight, you’ll be able to fish for many saltwater species as well as big game in freshwater, like bass, pike and big trout or even steelhead.  You get a lot of bang for your buck with the Clearwater rod series.  You do get more casting and fishing performance and American-made craftsmanship when you bump in price and go for a Recon and certainly to a Helios 3D or H3F.  But if your budget keeps you under $270, the Clearwater Travel series is an excellent choice.

We have made up 9 different Rod Outfit Packages to give you some options based on our recommendations.  We strongly recommend at least upgrading from the Clearwater Fly Line.  The Clearwater line is good but upgrading to the Orvis PRO or Scientific Anglers Amplitude series are well worth it -they cast better, float better and will last longer.  We also include 6 Outfits with the reel upgraded to the popular Battenkill Disc Mid-Arbor Reel or NEW Hydros Large-Arbor Reel.

NEW Clearwater Rods we carry- Single Hand:  CW 763-4,   CW 864-4,    CW 865-4,   CW 905-4,   CW 906-4,  CW 966-4,  CW 907-4,  CW 908-4,  CW 909-4;     NEW Clearwater Travel Rods:  CW 905-6,   CW 908-6;     NEW Clearwater Switch/Spey Rods:  Clearwater 1143-4,   Clearwater 126-4,   Clearwater 117-4,   Clearwater 137-4,   Clearwater 118-4;
