If you are looking for an inexpensive 8-weight, look no further! The Orvis Clearwater comes in at $249.00. It’s not the lightest rod and the components are not that great either, but the fast action is just right and gave me good feel and accuracy, especially at the shorter distances.
Add the Redington Grande reel and you’ve got a combo that can’t be beaten on price and performance. From the flats to throwing streamers in Montana this set up will do it all. Use the drop-down menu to customize the outfit to your needs.
