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.

Shop Staff Notes:  The Orvis Recon 9′ 6-weight Fly Rod is one versatile fly fishing tool. It’s got great power with enough finesse to make it an easy choice if one is looking at a new rod in a 6 weight fly line.  This rod will throw streamers, nymphs and dries and make it enjoyable while you are doing so. A great rod for the big Missouri where the wind never blows, for the medium size, Blackfoot -but where we throw some big, puffy dry flies that need some oomph to turn over, and the smaller Smith River where we fish a variety of bugs and need to turn those fish with authority to keep them from diving under an undercut or on the other side of a boulder. We do often upline this rod so it loads deeper, easier and with a shorter amount of line out -like while fishing from a boat. The Recon performs like many rods twice it’s price except the Helios 3F 906-4 and Helios 3D 906-4 of course!).  If you have one fly rod to pick and $450 is in your budget or maybe just above your budget, save money on the reel (maybe get a Clearwater Large Arbor instead of a Hydros SL or Mirage USA) and get this rod! This is a perfect rod for dry flies, for nymph fishing and for pitching streamers. Fishing from a boat, wade fishing or float tube, this is a versatile rod. Grab your topo map and go explore some blue line!
