The Recon 843-4 is an exceptional dry-fly rod with a moderate length for excellent control and the accuracy desired to make superior dry fly presentations. This length/weight configuration has been around for decades and is a favorite among dry fly purists. This new Recon version offers enhanced accuracy and the ability to drop a dry fly gently in a precise feeding lane where the difference of a couple of inches is all the difference in success and failure. For the mid-price angler, this is the perfect dry-fly rod.
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.
