The Recon 3-Weight 10′ 4-Piece Fly Rod is designed for the demands of European nymphing. Ultra sensitive tip protects light tippet and offers superior strike detection. Super light swing weight. 10-foot length offers excellent reach and line control for tight-line nymphing. 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.  Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont, USA.

Rod Outfits include:  Rod, Reel, Line, appropriate size and amount of colored, Dacron Backing all spooled up, ready to go and with a rod tube and rod bag and reel case.  The reel will be spooled up Left-Hand Retrieve, unless you specify right-hand retrieve in the Notes at check out.  Also to let us know in the Notes section of any fly line choices if that’s an option.  NOTE- In European-style nymphing you want a reel that is about 1 size larger than the rod calls for to help balance the rod in hand. These Outfits reflect that type of set up.

Shop Staff Notes:  The Orvis Helios 3 Blackout 11′ 3-weight Fly Rod is a beautiful fly rod deigned for European style fishing in mind and accomplishes that task wonderfully well.  It’s crazy light in hand and balanced well with its down-locking reel seat and short fighting butt. Eleven feet long gives you a bit more distance and phenomenal line control for the best drifts.
