The Recon 4-Weight 9' 4-Piece Fly Rod is an exceptionally versatile rod that can handle big trout on larger bodies of water, from the Delaware to the Madison. Its length and mid-range line weight give it great versatility for dry-fly fishing, streamer fishing with a sink tip, and nymphing lighter rigs. Warmwater species such as light bass and panfish are a perfect target for this rod with the ability to cover a lot of open water. The Recon 904-4 is an exceptional choice for all-around versatility in a mid-price fly rod with premium performance built in. 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.
The new Clearwater® Rod Series is not just a cosmetic facelift, but a complete overhaul from the ground up by our Vermont rod designers. Everything has changed except the value. It's still the best fly rod you can buy for the money, but with a significant upgrade in performance and looks in a comprehensive series that covers every angler from small stream addicts to Skagit slinging two-handers. Each rod was designed with a purpose-built profile and action to handle the kind of fishing the rod model would be traditionally used for, from medium-action small stream rods to medium-fast freshwater rods and fast-action big game rods.
