The Clearwater 8-Weight 9′ Fly Rod joins the Orvis 908-4 arsenal as the most popular big game rod model for species from big freshwater bass to bonefish, stripers, and false albacore. Any traveling angler, whether headed to the tropics, Bristol Bay, or South America, needs a 908-4 and the Clearwater is not only a great choice in the quiver, but is also a spectacular backup given the remarkable price point. If ever there was trip insurance, this rod is it, but never doubt the fact it is built to be the primary 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.  FREE Shipping on these Rod Outfits -use the promo code: ccfsfreeship.

Shop Staff Notes The Orvis Clearwater 9’ 8-Weight Fly Rod is a rod we recommend for our customers that are heading to do some big game (fresh or saltwater) fly fishing but aren’t sure if this will be something they will do every year or a couple times a year. It’s also an excellent choice for a dedicated big game angler who is looking for a quality, back-up fly rod or one that they can have on hand for a friend to use.  We used to not carry this rod configuration in the Clearwater series but after moving so many mid and high end rods, we though it would be smart to offer this practical fishing tool for folks that don’t want to spend  $500 to $900 on a rod.  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.  But if your budget keeps you under $250, the Clearwater is an excellent choice.

We have made up 9 different UPGRADED 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 Hydros or Scientific Anglers Amplitude series are well worth it -they cast better, float better and will last longer.  We also include 4 Outfits with the reel upgraded to the popular Battenkill Disc Mid-Arbor Reel or 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 Switch/Spey Rods:  Clearwater 1143-4,   Clearwater 126-4,   Clearwater 117-4,   Clearwater 137-4,   Clearwater 118-4;
