Orvis’ Silver Label fly rods deliver first-rate performance for less. In fact, the main differences between Orvis’ top-of-the-line Trident rods and the Silver Label series are the hardware, the grip technology, and the paint job-same graphite, same blank taper, same performance. Bottom line: you can get a heck of a rod for the money. Available in line weights from 2 to 12, in tip-flex (fast), mid-flex (medium) and full flex (slow) rod actions. About $250 for 9-foot 6-weight mid-flex (shown)’ call 800-548-9548.
