Orvis Encounter Flyfishing Outfits

by Orvis

Unbelievable value backed by one of the biggest names in flyfishing.


Instead of the term “entry level,” we prefer to describe our new Encounter rod outfits as “affordable awesomeness.” Built for the hardcore angler, yet priced with frugality in mind, the Encounter rod series combines state-of-the-art rod design with a smooth, crisp performance—packaged with a large arbor Encounter reel, weight-forward floating line, backing, and leader. The Encounter fly rod outfit is easily the best value-priced outfit of its kind. This is the perfect backup fly fishing rod for an experienced travelling angler or for a new angler who plans to spend most of their time on bigger trout waters.

The 8 weight package is a good start for saltwater fly fisher's or those targeting natives like Murray Cod.
