Re: Orvis Clearwater?
The Clearwater is a nice rod, I would take the discounted outfit that Orvis is currently offering. I think the 4wt Clearwater combo will have the Clearwater Large Arbor II reel. I had that reel before I traded it with Access IV mid arbor. Nothing wrong with the reel, I just want to have a fully sealed reel like the Access IV. For small stream and pond fishing the LA Clearwater II will do just great.
