Default Re: Orvis Clearwater?

The Clearwater is a good choice. I think that it is one of the better quality price pointed rods on the market.

If the local shop guy is going to help you out with a line and accessories, by all means, buy a whole outfit. Good local shops are hard to come by, so help him out by having him help you out.

I am not a big fan of the corresponding Clearwater reel. It is just made so hinky meaning I'm not thrilled on the quality. I would be looking at the Battenkill Bar Stock reel if you want that traditional Orvis look or an Access Mid Arbor reel if you want a more modern design.
