 Orvis sent me this rod as part of a combo connected to a new arbor line but I wanted to experiment with the rod and the reels separately to see the performance of the reels. These reels lacked beauty. But still this  Orvis Clearwater Fly reel is useful and therefore my life is very much so the design is smooth and airy. I experimented with a clear water rod and found out that this Orvis Fly reel is exactly like this rod.

It doesn’t feel very cheap despite the low price. The most important thing for me while reviewing this  Orvis Fly reel was the drag of this train. Some of the reels I have experienced till date have some of the best performance and some of them have lack of smoothness.


 Not necessarily, but I had less trouble with this train. I have never used anything with a rail that has more lines at a time. There is a long drag knob in the frame of this rail which is easy to use. It provides good grip and performance. This train has two turns for more than zero drag. The spool of this rail which helps in adjustment is loose so that it can be rotated many times. It feels solid while crank the rail.

The handle of this Orvis Clearwater Fly reel has the features of relaxing taper. The Clearwater II reel is intended for rod line weights 4-6, while the Clearwater IV is designed for 7-9.
