With the Clearwater 912-4, the most practical rod for big-game anglers on a budget, never before has a quality 12-weight rod been so affordable. Lighter than some 8-weights, yet solid enough to stand up to the sport's ultimate fish, it's the perfect combination of power, utility, and value. Pick one up, tie on a fly, and chase the trophy of your dreams. Saltwater reel seat with cork-and-EVA foam fighting butt.

"I bought this rod specifically for tarpon while traveling south this summer. I have been an Orvis customer for over 25 yrs. trusting the quality of their gear. Being on a budget this summer, I found this rod to be less expensive than other rods in the 12 wt. class adding the 25 yr guarantee...it was an easy decision. My tarpon trip is next week, but I already used this rod for Bass & Muskie. I was impressed with the rod as soon as I took it out of it's case, very good looks. And casting? The rod is a very smooth casting rod, loading a little higher than the middle of the rod for a solid backbone while casting heavy, wind-resistant flies and handling heavy fish. I am definitely pleased with this rod."
