New to Fins & Feathers First Week of January
New 2019 product is starting to roll into Fins & Feathers. Among the first to arrive was the new Orvis Clearwater rod and also Simms fishing packs. Here is a breakdown of each pack and the new rod from our Bozeman fly shop.
2019 Orvis Clearwater – The Clearwater underwent a complete design overhaul that is accompanied by a sleek new look. Going from the previous green to a now black chrome blank with white accents, has made the Clearwater much more appealing to the eye.

These changes have resulted in incredibly accurate and powerful rods with plenty of feel for a great price. The trout verisons retail for $198 while the saltwater models come in juts slightly higher at $229. Currently available in 4, 5 and 6 weight at our Bozeman fly shop with more models arrving soon.
