    This outfit features the redesigned Orvis Recon Fly Rod, Orvis Hydros Fly Reel, Orvis Hydros Saltwater Line, Dacron Backing, and Tapered Leader, professionally rigged ready to fish!

    The New Orvis Recon 908-4 fly rod is completely redesigned for 2020! From bonefish to bonito, stripers to bluefish, false albacore to redfish, the Recon 908-4 is a saltwater workhorse that can do it all. With improved accuracy and strength, this rod is a sight fishing gem. If you like to drag big bass out of the weeds in freshwater, this rod can do it with ease, and at this price point, having one is easy and having two is even better.

    Orvis Recon fly rods are each hand crafted in the USA with a completely new ferrule design, a matte blue blank with charcoal and light blue accents, and an anodized type iii solid aluminum reel seat. 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 blue with charcoal and light blue accent
    • Quick rod identifier on the blank
    • Pewter type III anodized aluminum solid aluminum reel seat with 1" Fighting Butt
    • Silver snake and stripping guides
    • Nylon covered rod tube
    • Backed by the Orvis 25-year guarantee
    • Hand crafted in the USA


    The New re-designed Hydros Fly Reel for 2020, features a lightweight bar-stock aluminum machined frame and spool, fully sealed drag, and best-in-class line pickup per revolution, buttery-smooth startup inertia and a narrower spool that reduces line stacking. The New 2020 Hydros reel incorporates an improved seal carbon and stainless drag along with a reduction in weight balance for lighter fly rods. From Freshwater to the Saltwater Flats, the New Orvis Hydros IV will match any fishing application and have the stopping power for the larger species in our waters. The newly upgraded sealed drag gives the angler a smoother and more powerful reel for landing steelhead, salmon, bass, bonefish or other 7-8wt fly rod species.

    The Orvis Hydros Saltwater All-Rounder Fly Line is the perfect choice to cover a wide variety of saltwater situations and species. As the name implies, Orvis Hydros Saltwater All-Rounder excels in all situations and is your one-line-does-it-all for saltwater conditions. The versatile compound taper design provides front loaded power to shred the wind, but will present a fly to spooky fish in clear water. This line is built for a wide rage of temperatures and environments so it will not wilt in the heat or become too stiff in cold water. The Saltwater All-Rounder throws big flies in windy conditions with tight loops. This line excels equally at long distance casting and quick shots to cruising fish. The Hydros Saltwater All-Rounder is a great choice for stripers, redfish, snook, bonefish, tarpon and big freshwater species like pike, musky, smallmouth bass, and largemouth bass.

    Best customer service of any company
    Zachary M Simpson (California) | November 4th, 2020
    I ordered this saltwater outfit for my Orvis Saltwater School in the Florida Keys for next year for my birthday. I made some special requests in regards to asking ReelFlyRod to get the special edition Matte Blue Hydros IV reel even though it wasn't an option. ReelFlyRod did not blink at the request and ordered the special color reel for me. They also put the color backing on the reel that I asked for which when combined with the color of the reel, backing, and line color makes the combination look like Red, White, and Blue together. They even posted the reel up on their Instagram page prior to shipping to me. If you are looking for the best customer service from a small business in the fly fishing industry do not hesitate to order from ReelFlyRod you will not be left with a sour taste in your mouth. The most personable group of guys on the phone I have encountered.
