A 5-weight rod is the freshwater sweet spot in line weight versatility. Whether swinging streamers across and down, extending drifts near the banks from a moving drift boat, or tracking a nymph rig a few feet further in the zone, this 10' 5-weight Recon gives you the ability to cover more water, extend your fly's time in the zone, and has the power to handle big trout, bass, and light steelhead. A superior value in a mid-priced 5-weight with versatility and 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.
