Re: Clearwater and Sage One 4wt
I can't comment on the Sage, but I do own the Clearwater and I can say that Orvis has just outstanding service from your regional store to the HQ in Vermont. The Clearwater is well made and I'm like you, somewhat new to the world of fly fishing. You also can't beat the warranty that Orvis offers. Good luck.
