If ever there was a standard for all-around performance on larger streams, rivers, and lakes for multiple species of fish, its the Recon Fly Rod. The Recon is a rod that can handle big trout, bass, and panfish from coast to coast. This length/weight rod is the number one selling configuration. Its length and mid-range line weight give it great versatility for dry-fly fishing, streamer fishing, perfect for a drift boat, and nymphing mid to light/heavy rigs. When you want to cover water, throw everything from an Adams to a deer-hair popper, the Recon is an exceptional choice for all-around versatility in a mid-price fly rod with premium performance built in. Helios™ 3 is the benefactor behind the new Recon, utilizing its construction techniques and performance attributes to refine and improve the new series. Increased hoop strength, better tracking, improved damping, and ultimately, significantly improved accuracy are now incorporated into the Recon that is also stronger, more impact resistant, and offers the mid-price buyer access to the best technology Orvis fly rods have to offer.
