Orvis Recon Rods

Maps Not Included

Recon is the all-new rod designed for the anglers who chase blue lines on topo maps and spend their nights bent over maps, plotting the next day’s adventures. For those who manage riverside meals of granola bars and jerky paired with the evening hatch instead of a sit-down meal at a sane hour. For anglers who would rather spend the day in the front of a skiff than behind a desk, we’ve created a rod ready to work as hard as you do in the pursuit of fish.

Recon teams high-performance feel with lightness in hand. With close-in loading ability and the power for longer reach, the rods feature a modern shadow green blank and covert black nickel hardware.

~ Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont.
~ Helios 2-inspired high-performance tapers
~ Improved, unsanded ferrule design
~ Lightest-weight rod in its class
