Orvis Recon Fly Rods

by Orvis

Deadly accurate and feel like no other rod in this category. Premium performance and US made quality without the price tag. We love em!


Maps Not Included - Recon is the 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.

Rods 7 weight or higher include high-end saltwater safe components with a fighting butt to apply maximum hurt on predatory species. There’s also a salt specific 9ft 6 weight that is ideal for bream or those that want a fighting butt on their 6 weight.


Proudly made in the USA by people who love fishing as much as you do.

  • Superior High-performance tapers
  • Improved, unsanded ferrule design
  • Lightest-weight rod in its class
  • U.S.-made nylon covered rod tube

Orvis Recon 3wt

Upgrading from a lower quality 3wt, the Recon has the ability to load quickly for short distance presentations but will still easily and quickly punch out those 40ft+ casts. finding it has a strong butt section for a 3wt too. Paired with SA Amplitude Creek Trout seems to be a perfect match.
