Description
 

Seen by many as the best all-around rod size on the market, the eight-foot six-inch five-weight is the ideal rod for the one-rig angler with a preference for smaller water. For years, this weight was the best-selling fly rod model in the Orvis line, and Recon carries on that tradition with aplomb. The slightly shorter length allows for small stream versatility, but high modulus graphite ensures this rod came to play when faced with larger water. Present small dries with finesse and larger flies with accuracy, while maintaining the lightweight sensitivity of a five-weight. 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.

  • Shadow green blank with black nickel reel seat and dark burl wood insert
  • Heavy-duty black nickel hardware
  • 7” half wells grip
  • Silver snake and stripping guides
  • Includes aluminum rod tube with cloth rod sock
