Orvis Recon 8ft 4in 3wt Fly Rod

This is the new Recon fly rod from Orvis. Included are the topo map aluminum rod tube and cloth rod sock.  Incredible reviews and winner of Fly Fisherman's  best Mid-Priced fly rod for 2015.  Shadow green is the rod blank, and black nickel finish on all of the hardware.  There is a return to a 'woody' reel seat.  Our own Allen Wyatt took the rod out for the first time and cast in the park, by the store.  Range was 10 feet into the backing! Now, you would never fish at that range, but it is nice to know you Can.

Factory Specifications

The Recon 3-weight is a strong choice for anglers who love to chase native fish on small streams, but like a rod that will give them the "oomph" they need when the fish range out of fingerling size. The 8'4" length allows precise placement in close quarters but is capable of sending a cast over bigger water with ease. An excellent choice for the dry fly angler. 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.
