The Clearwater 8-Weight 9' 6-Piece Fly Rod joins the Orvis 908 arsenal as the most popular big game rod model for species from big freshwater bass to bonefish, stripers, and false albacore. New convenient 6-piece easily breaks down into two equal sections for quick transport from spot to spot. With a rod tube at just 22½"L, it easily fits into a duffle, pack, or under the car seat. Any traveling angler, whether headed to the tropics, Bristol Bay, or South America, needs a backup rod, and the Clearwater 908-6 is the perfect solution. If ever there was trip insurance, this rod is it, but never doubt the fact that it is built to be the primary rod, backed by a 25-year guarantee to prove it. The new Clearwater Rod Series is not just a cosmetic facelift, but a complete overhaul from the ground up by our Vermont rod designers. Everything has changed except the value. It's still the best fly rod you can buy for the money, but with a significant upgrade in performance and looks in a comprehensive series that covers every angler from small stream addicts to Skagit slinging two-handers. Each rod was designed with a purpose-built profile and action to handle the kind of fishing the rod model would be traditionally used for, from medium-action small stream rods to medium-fast freshwater rods and fast-action big game rods.
