Orvis Streamline Fly Rods
Streamline series of fly rods from Orvis have been designed specifically
for new anglers....or to be used as a spare rod.
Each rod in the Streamline series is targeted toward a particular species
For trout fishing, there are 4-5 rods available in the Streamline series
that new anglers might want to consider. These trout rods come in either
2 pieces or 4 pieces, and have line-weights ranging from 3-6. The action
on the Streamline rods vary from mid-flex to tip-flex. For fishing in
small-streams, these rods are not the rod of choice.
For introductory anglers, these fly rods do represent excellent value.
Certainly, they are far better than the junky stuff you'll pick up at
most sporting good stores or Walmart. However, a new angler who knows
that they enjoy fly fishing (not just "experimenting" with the sport),
should really consider upgrading to the Clearwater
Series of Fly Rods.
The Clearwater rods are lighter, more versatile and will provide many
more years of satisfactory service. And the cost for a Clearwater rod is not
that much more, at least compared to other 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 Streamline 905-4
The first two numbers, in this case 90, refer to the length of the rod. Thus, this rod is 9 feet, 0 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, 4, refers to how many pieces the rod is.
Thus, a rod with a product name of Streamline 864-2 indicates the rod is 8 feet 6 inches long, is a 4 weight rod, and comes in 2 pieces. Simple, huh?
