Early season for the 5 wt. When the wild fish start to show it's a 6 at minimum. I'd say a 7 would be perfect.

I'll be on the N Umqua end of the week. yay!

sorry if this turned into a hijack??

I just recently brought home a new Orvis Superfine 2 wt. I tried a bunch of rods from different companies, but this one had the feel and flex I was looking for.

I don't know how it differs from the original, but the current version is very well made, great feel, high quality, and built in Vermont.

It's a keeper for sure.

-Congrats on joining the superfine club, this is one of those rods you simply can't cast without grinning ear to ear. The flex is perfection within the industry. So yes this rod does differ from the original, the tapers have been altered a bit, the wrapings, and also the hardware. However, orvis did a great job of maintaining the traditional feel and adding exceptional harware and materials. At $495 this is incredibly hard to beat, the only other rods I would compare this to in feel and accuracy are some of the rods in the winston lineup, Even then your paying an extra $200, so the superfine is a no-brainer.

Those of you considering a winston WT or bIIt, I challenge you to try the superfine against them and see how you feel.

Orvis Superfine.

If God made himself a trout rod, this'd be it.
