The Whole Package

The Encounter 9' 5wt Fly Rod Outfit is more than just a starter-kit for your first fly fishing trip, it's a high-performing, versatile package that's here to ensure you spend more time fishing than you do at the fly shop. A medium-fast action lets gives beginners a chance to get their casting down, while still offering more advanced anglers the opportunity to make longer casts and land larger fish. Pairing seamlessly with the Encounter Fly Reel, a large arbor reel featuring a smooth-running stainless steel disc drag, the Encounter Outfit is suited to fishing for a wide-variety of species in a range of conditions. Completing the package with floating fly line, backing, and tippet, Orvis made sure that you have everything you need except a few flies and a place to drop a line.
