Orvis Recon Freshwater and Saltwater Fly Rod

  • Sale
  • Regular price $429.00


Recon teams a high-performance, fast action feel with light swing weight. With close-in loading prowess and the power for longer reach, Recon rods boast a completely new ferrule design, a modern shadow green blank, and covert black nickel hardware and reel seats.

Recon rods use an improved ferrule design, which provides better ferrule engagement and fewer issues with the occasional twisting or disengagement of ferrules during fishing. The plastic reel seat filler and shiny gold anodized reel seats of the Access rods have been replaced with a more subtle black nickel anodized aluminum reel seat with a dark burl wood spacer (in the freshwater models) and a plain aluminum spacer in the saltwater model.

Recon rods use a blend of intermediate and high-modulus graphite raw material with standard resins.
