I noticed in the Orvis catalog that they are now making a convertable spinning/fly outfit, can you buy just the rod only, I have more than enough fly reels and spinning reels, all I need is the rod. this may be a birth day present for my son. Does LRO stock this outfit?

The Spin/Fly Combo is not an item we stock. It is available and we can order it. When Dave Hayward was here last weekend he had one of them with him. It looked neat. I didn't get the opportunity to cast the rod.
I called and spoke with Orvis. They told me that the rod was only available as part of the combo, not alone. If you add up all the components you get, two reels, line, the rod and case, it is a good deal.

I hope this helps out.

Thanks for the info, right now I have more than enough orvis fly reels, so i would prefer to buy the rod only, but it never hurts to have another mid abror, they are my favorites. For the price you can't hardly beat them. I will have to consider the outfit.
