Orvis Encounter 9 Foot 8 Weight Fly Rod / Reel Outfit- Instead of entry level, we think of the Orvis Encounter rod outfits as “affordable awesomeness”. This 9' 8-weight Encounter outfit has all the power and performance anyone could ask at a price that will have you wondering, what's the catch? Backup or first big-game rod outfit, this is the finest you will ever buy at this price.
- 9’ 8-wt.
- Smooth, crisp performance
- Packaged with a large arbor Encounter reel, weight-forward floating line, backing, and leader
The fly reel is cast plastic. If you are looking to stop freight train (like a bonefish, salmon or steelhead) in the salt or freshwater, you may want to look for another option. This outfit is a great choice for a beginner bass angler or even as a second outfit to have sitting around.
