Orvis Recon Saltwater Fly rod
Recon is the all-new rod designed for the anglers who chase blue lines on topo maps and spend their nights bent over maps, plotting the next day’s adventures. For those who manage riverside meals of granola bars and jerky paired with the evening hatch instead of a sit-down meal at a sane hour. For anglers who would rather spend the day in the front of a skiff than behind a desk, we’ve created a rod ready to work as hard as you do in the pursuit of fish. Recon teams high-performance feel with lightness in hand. With close-in loading ability and the power for longer reach, the rods feature a modern shadow green blank and covert black nickel hardware.
Finally, the big game rod in the length/weight combo you've been waiting for. With the backbone of a true ten-weight and the power and reach of a 9-foot rod, this Recon is the rod you want in hand when the guide yells out the approach of an incoming bonefish. When you're ceaselessly throwing heavy streamers in pursuit of hungry musky in a driving rain. When the first permit you've ever seen in the flesh appears on the flat in front of you. The Recon will get the job done. The appropriate flex has been built into the rod, eliminating the need to worry about tip- and mid-flex designations. Crafted with a completely new ferrule design, a stealthy shadow green blank, and heavy-duty black nickel hardware, the Recon is ready for your next adventure. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont, USA.
