This is my new Orvis Superfine Fly Rod. It's a prize for winning the Finnish Trout Conservation Competition organized by The Orvis Co Finland and Finnish Fly Fishing Forum Perhokalastajat.net.

Ahh, the newest bundle of joy. One thing about Orvis - they know how to make a rod tube look pretty cool... 8-)

She's a beauty! And yeah, your'e not going to put a USED reel on her, are you? Bad, bad parenting.

Great looking rod Olli!
I love the light rods from Orvis. I got three of them, all rods of the older Superfine series from the 1980's. Real gems!

Enjoy & let us know what you think about it?

Ps. Have you EVER consider getting an Orvis rod before? in my youth Orvis was THE brand in fly fishing.

Thank you all.

Ed, used Reel? Unlikely. :-)

Jay, actually I have not considered Orvis rod very seriously. I believe that in 80’s the Orvis Company wasn’t much present in Finnish market. I’m not sure. This is one fine fly rod for sure.
