The Orvis Clearwater Fly Rod and Reel Outfits are hands down some of the the best you can buy for the money. This well-appointed series includes rods to cover every angler. Featured here is the 8'6" 5wt Outfit. 

Everything has changed except the value. The new Clearwater Rod Series is a complete overhaul from the ground up by our Vermont rod designers. Each rod is designed with a purpose-built profile and action to handle the fishing the rod would be traditionally used for, from medium-action small stream rods to medium-fast freshwater rods and fast-action big game rods. Designed in Vermont for anglers worldwide.

The ready-to-fish Clearwater 865-4 Outfit offers quality at a value that’s hard to beat and is an ideal introduction into the sport. The Clearwater 8'6" 5-wt. Fly Rod continues the legacy of this iconic length and line weight. Considered the perfect trout rod, this was the first model purchased by many fly anglers. The legendary Superfine Orvis Henry’s Fork rod was an 8'6" 5-wt. It offers a versatile length that’s at home on large or small water and a line weight that allows for the enjoyment of small trout yet can handle large trout and light bass with ease. Whether you’re looking for versatility, a daily driver that hangs rigged and ready on the wall, or the one and only fly rod you own, the Clearwater 865-4 fits the wallet-friendly bill.

Outfit includes the Clearwater 8'6" 5-wt. rod, a size II Clearwater Large Arbor Reel, Clearwater line, backing, and leader, and a rod/reel case.

Having a complete outfit is essential to your success out on the water. We've made it simple, so when you purchase the basics for your fly fishing outfit, we'll put it all together for you so you're ready to go.

Here's how it works:

• Purchase a Rod, Reel and Fly Line
• On the first page of the checkout process, click on the green Setup Reels/Outfits button (top and bottom of page).
• There you will find a tool where you can pair the three together and choose your backing color. No need to worry about the amount or size of backing as we'll take care of that for you. We know what to do.
• That's it! 

From there, we'll load the appropriate amount and color of backing and the line on the reel for you (no need to buy backing). The backing, rigging and shipping is all on us. Free of charge.

Additional Information

• Fly Line Backing comes in 20lb and 30lb test. It also comes in white, fl. orange, blue, black, optic green, fl. yellow and red. Again, no need to make any decisions here other than what color you want. 

• Reel retrieve is selected at the point of purchase on each reel. We will load the line onto the reel and make sure that the retrieve is set up as you selected. 

• Feel free to call us or e-mail us with any questions as we will also do the same if we have any for you.

We're passionate about putting together the Fly Rod and Reel Outfit that's perfect for your time out on the water.

Let's get started:

• Select your fly rod
• Select your fly reel
• Select your fly line
• Open the Setup Reels/Outfits tool on the first page of checkout and pair the three items together. Simply choose your backing color.....and we'll do the rest!

Give us a call or email if you have any questions or rigging requests

It's really that simple. We aim to take all the hard work out of your fly fishing experience.
