Access 9-weight 9' Fly Rod—Tip Flex

3¼ oz. 9', 4-piece, Tip-Flex Fly Rod for 9-wt. line.For the traveling angler, this is without a doubt the best saltwater fly rod you can buy for stripers, bluefish, false albacore, bonito and if you live in the South, reds, snook, and big Florida strain largemouth. Great for saltwater applications where the wind is a factor and you need to punch big flies upwind. Built with all the new technology, proprietary tapers and actions developed with Helios over the past few years, Access saltwater fly rods offer versatility, price and performance in a package never before possible.

"I ave only used this rod once thus far and I am enjoying it quite a bit. It feels great casting and is quite strong. I got the rod and set-up for steelhead and salmon fishing and plan on netting a few very soon. The cost of the product relative to others for a similar product was very good."

"Matched Rod with a Mirage IV. Aesthetics and performance are very important to me. Both the rod and reel easily satisfy my expectations. Can cast the rod all day and throw a ton of line. No doubt about the backbone to land a big fish from the beach."

Great 9wt rod,

"Bought this earlier in the summer to fish for stripers and blues: it is very light and nicely balanced, very well made, and pairs well with the Hydros reel. The tip-flex is a pretty stiff rod, but not too stiff, IMHO. Casts streamers well into the wind. I think the Access rods are the best buy in the Orvis line at the moment."
