Recon® 5-Weight 8'6" 4-Piece Fly Rod

If you need only a single freshwater fly rod, make it the Recon 5-Weight 8'6" 4-Piece.


This Recon 4-piece fly rod reminds us there was a time when the best-selling rod configuration was the 8'6" 5-weight. The Orvis Henry's Fork was an icon in fly fishing for years. For all-around freshwater versatility in waters big or small, on the surface or under it, the Recon 865-4 continues the legacy of this length and line-weight configuration. If you are looking for one freshwater rod that can adapt to almost every situation, this is the rod for you. With the latest in design and construction technology, and at a remarkable mid-price point, the Recon 865-4 is a must-have for any angler who appreciates great fly rod performance. 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.
