We were on a trip to Cape Cod to fish for stripers. My sons new Clearwater rod broke the day before the trip. I knew I didnt have time to fedex the rod and wait for a new one so I called the Flagship store in Manchester Vermont because I knew we could pass by on the way.
I spoke with Mark, and after explaining my situation, I told him I would stop by on my way to swap rods.
I hit the outlet store and the main store where I picked up some sweet flies, cool new shirts and some videos for the ride.
I even had a chance to try out a 5wt on the ponds in the back.
I would like to give a BIG thank you to Mark for helping us out and showing us a great time.
Because of people like Mark, great products, warranties, gear, and customer service, it is no wonder that Orvis is a leader in the fly fishing industry.
By the way, my son LOVED his clearwater 10 wt and I lOVE my Helios 2 10wt. We put them to good use.
The helios 2 is a dream as expected but the clearwater was a very pleasant surprise. For the money, that is a great rod.
