Orvis Encounter fly fishing outfits are built for the serious angler, yet priced with frugality in mind. The Encounter rod series combines state-of-the-art rod design with smooth, crisp performance. The rods are matched with a large arbor Orvis Encounter reel, which is supplied pre-loaded with an Orvis Clearwater weight forward floating fly line, backing, and a leader! These excellent outfits are ready to fish with out of the box!
The brand new 10' #7 outfit is supplied with three spools in total, and includes a weight forward floating, intermediate and sinking lines, perfect for stillwater anglers! With an RRP of £299 for the rod, reel, two spools and three lines, this outfit offers superb value for money!
“A sound, solid rod at the centre of a well balanced outfit. Casting the Encounter reminded me of Orvis premium rods a couple of generations back. I’d have no qualms recommending this as a novice outfit, or just as a complete budget outfit.”
- Magnus Angus, Fly Fishing & Fly Tying Magazine
