    NEW! ORVIS RECON 865-4 FLY ROD : 5WT, 8'6"

    The New Orvis Recon 865-4 fly rod is completely redesigned for 2020! This 5wt is an all-around freshwater rod in waters big or small, on the surface or under it, the Recon 865-4 continues the legacy of this length and line-weight configuration. If you are looking for one freshwater rod that can adapt to almost every situation, this is the rod for you. With the latest in design and construction technology, and at a remarkable mid-price point, the Recon 865-4 is a must-have for any angler who appreciates great fly rod performance. 

    Orvis Recon fly rods are each hand crafted in the USA with a completely new ferrule design, a matte olive blank with charcoal and spring green accents, and an anodized type iii reel seat with wood insert. The New Recon uses the Helios 3 as a foundation, 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.


    • Blanks are matte olive with charcoal and spring green accent
    • Quick rod identifier on the blank
    • Pewter type III anodized aluminum reel seat with wood insert
    • Silver snake and stripping guides
    • Nylon covered rod tube
    • Backed by the Orvis 25-year guarantee
    • Hand crafted in the USA

    Great Rod
    Alex (MD) | November 25th, 2020
    I bought this rod after breaking my Clearwater rod. This is a huge step up from the clearwater series and I would recommend it to anyone. Feels solid, performs well, looks good.

    This Rod is a very good rod for its price but I would highly recommend the 9' 5 weight over the 8'6". I was able to exchange my rod for the longer version when I broke it during a fall in a fast moving river.

    Great service, prompt delivery. The 8.6 5 wt. Recon feels amazing. Can't wait to get out in the Delaware this spring.
