I purchased the Orvis Recon 9ft 5 weight last spring and have been extremely happy with the rod! Great price point, lightweight, versatile and extremely accurate. Would highly recommend!
I bought the recon this year and couldn’t be happier with this rod. Amazing accuracy and perfect for trout fishing.
Tanner, Scott and Jack hooked me up with a great recommendation on the 8'6" 5-weight Orvis Recon to add to my quiver. As always everybody is extremely helpful in the shop and willing to help answer any and all questions. I recommend Trouts to everybody that is looking for any sort of help in the fly fishing world! Best fly shop in Denver.
I had an older model Recon and bought this new Recon as my dedicated streamer rod, and I love it. Great action, accuracy, love this rod and keep it in my quiver at all times!
The recon is an accurate rod and can cast far, it pairs well with most reels and is perfect for trout fishing. A 9 foot 4 or 5 weight could be used for nymphs, dries, and streamers in most rivers in co. Good job Orvis.
