Orvis Split Bamboo Fly Rods

We Built Our First Rod When Lincoln Was Just a Whig.

Perhaps no other piece of sporting equipment invokes such reverence for tradition as the split-cane bamboo fly rod. Orvis has been building bamboo fly rods for well over a century, and is responsible for some of the most important innovations in their design and construction. The resulting heirloom bamboo fly rods have surprising power with consummate grace and a bit of passionate charm. In the overwhelming techno-wilderness of the early twenty first century, the Orvis bamboo fly rod represents a lasting bastion of workbench craftsmanship.
