This Orvis Osprey was made in 1981, yet it has seen only occasional use and it is in excellent condition. It comes with the original Orvis sock and tube. The original Orvis graphite rods were designed to imitate their bamboo line, going so far as to share the same names. Consequently, this rod, when used with a 6 wt. line is quite slow. However, the rod works very well with WF-5 lines and can also cast a DT-4. I'd really rate the rod a five weight, not a six. It makes a great nymphing or wet fly rod -- I've even caught steelhead with it.

$195.00 USD + $15.00 S&H
