If you find yourself on a big river doing wet-fly swings across and down, imagine how much fun it would be with a Clearwater 3-weight 11’4″ trout Spey fly rod. Add a new dimension to your approach. Think of the water you could cover, not to mention the fun of fighting trout or even smallies on a long, light fly rod. Reach out with a dry fly and control the drift with extended reach, or add a light dropper rig. Tailwaters, big riffles, the possibilities are endless. Big, fun, small price, and a 25-Year Guarantee.
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.

Shop Staff Notes:  The new Orvis Clearwater 1143-4 Trout Spey Rod has been a long awaited for rod for us two handed fanatics here at CrossCurrents Fly Shop! Orvis finally made a Spey or Switch rod lighter than their 5 and 6 weights -and it’s a dandy! Feels good in hand, casts smoothly and easily and looks good too. This is an excellent rod for your first two-hander or if you want another one in your arsenal and a 3-weight would fit the bill. It’s priced right to be in reach for most folks. We also offer this rod in 5 different Outfits that give you great deal of selection on what type of fishing you want to do with this sweet spey stick.

ROD OUTFIT NOTES:
Outfit #1 includes the new RIO InTouch TROUT SPEY Fly Line and 2, 10′ RIO Spey Versileaders.  This line is easy to cast and is an integrated fly line -meaning there are no loop-to-loop connections so it slides through he guides easily.  This line has plenty of power to make it super easy to cast. It’s a good choice for all around trout fishing -fishing dries on the surface, nymphing with indicators, stripping streamers or swinging streamers or soft hackles.

Outfit #2 includes the new RIO InTouch SKAGIT Trout Spey Line and a set of 2 Skagit MOW Tips.  If you want one of the easiest lines to cast and having a lot of power to turn over sink tips and/or heavy streamers, this line is the perfect choice.  It’s also very easy to set up to use.   All you need to do is add about 3′-6′ of butt section and tippet or just tippet material on the end and your MOW tip and you are ready to ply with the waters for aquatic adrenaline!  (SET UP TIP:  Take an old leader -doesn’t really matter what leader, just one that the tippet end is trashed. From the perfection loop at the butt section, cut it off so it’s about 3′ long. Then tie a LARGE perfection loop on the thinner end (leave the small loop that came on the leader on the butt section). Loop the small loop (on the butt section) to the end of the MOW Tip.  Then loop about 12″-15″ of tippet material (like Mirage Fluoracarbon Tippet or RIO Fluoroflex Plus in 0X, 1X or 2X) on the end of that. Your fly will be tied to the end of that tippet material (I use a Non-Slip Mono Loop).  You can pre-tie flies with the tippet and then just loop-to-loop them on the end of your leader, super quick, super easy -especially when your fingers are cold and numb. Also makes changing MOW tips a breeze, just doing loop-to-loop and never having to cut or tie on anything.)

Outfit #3 includes the very popular RIO SCANDI-SHORT VersiTip Shooting Head System that offers a lot of power for big, articulated flies but still allows you to deliver precise and delicate presentations for smaller flies or for swinging in shallow water or even skating dries on the surface.  This line is great for newer Spey anglers or experts.  All you need to add to this Outfit system is a Leader and some Tippet -and of course your fly. Scandinavian shooting heads are very popular in the Spey arena and this shorter version lends itself well to Trout Spey. The head length on this line is longer than the new InTouch Trout Spey.

Outfit #4 includes the awesome RIO SWITCH CHUCKER Fly Line and 1, 10′ RIO Spey Versileaders and 1, 10′ Light Skagit MOW Tip.  This line is super easy to cast with lots of power and is an integrated fly line -meaning there are no loop-to-loop connections so it slides through the guides easily.  This line is pretty versatile- it can chuck heavy sink tips and big flies just like a Skagit line but it does have a longer, tapered head and a long, 14′ handling section that allows for more types of fishing techniques.  This line can fish effectively a Nymph Rig set up or even throw a dry fly (though it’s much better for skating dries, not fishing them up stream, dead drift -it’s too chunky and clunky to fish a dry fly delicately. Skating is good with this line. Strainer has used this line for skated dries for Steelhead in BC.)  We include 2 different 10′ RIO Spey Versileaders (5ips, 7ips).  You can set up the leader system exactly as described in Outfit #2 above or just use standard 9′ or 12′ leaders.

Outfit #5 is the ultimate outfit in versatility as it includes the new RIO InTouch TROUT SPEY Shooting Head AND the RIO InTouch SKAGIT Trout Spey Shooting Head, a matched size RIO ConnectCore Shooting Line,  2, 10′ RIO Spey Versileaders and 2, 10′ RIO Light MOW Tips and a RIO Shooting Wallet to hold the tips and the shooting head not in use. This gives you the choice to easily switch from a lighter line for more delicate presentations to a more powerful line to chuck streamers -all on a single spool so there’s no need to buy a separate spool for your reel. To change techniques, it’s just a matter of loop-to-loop connections.

Outfit #6 is very similar to #5 but is from the new Orvis Mission Spey line up. The ultimate outfit in versatility as it includes the Orvis Mission SCANDI Shooting Head AND the Orvis Mission SKAGIT Shooting Head, a matched size Mission Shooting Line,  2, 10′ RIO Spey Versileaders and 2, 8′ Orvis Mission Sink Tips and a Shooting Wallet to hold the tips and the shooting head not in use. This gives you the choice to easily switch from a lighter line for more delicate presentations to a more powerful line to chuck streamers -all on a single spool so there’s no need to buy a separate spool for your reel. To change techniques, it’s just a matter of loop-to-loop connections.
