Most dedicated tarpon anglers are inevitably traveling to pursue the legendary silver king—the Clearwater 12-Weight 9′ Fly Rod is the consummate partner for multiple setups and backup. At this price you can carry three for the price you would normally pay for a premium 12 weight and yet you get not only Orvis-designed fast action, specifically built for this application, but a 25-year Guarantee to boot. Hard to argue with that.
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.
