fly rods are high quality, some of which are identical to that used
on the Superfine series fly rods.

Note : Here's how to decipher the product name below, so you know the specs of the fly rod just by the name. An example of a typical product name is : Orvis Clearwater II 795-2
The first two numbers, in this case 79, refer to the length of the rod. Thus, this rod is 7 feet, 9 inches long. The third number, 5, refers to the weight of the rod (what is fly rod weight?). And the final number after the dash, 2, refers to how many pieces the rod is.
So, a rod labelled Clearwater II 806-4, means the rod is eight feet long, is a 6 weight rod, and comes in 4 pieces. Simple, huh?
