ORVIS RECON 966-4 FLY ROD OUTFIT : 6WT, 9'6"
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 966-4 fly rod is completely redesigned for 2020! This is a great heavy nymphing rod with the power to handle heavy rigs and the reach to control the drift for longer periods. A perfect rod for the east and west coast steelhead angler. If you're looking for extended line control and mending ability, the Recon 966-4 is a superior option that, while extending your reach, is still close to standard rod length, making it a very versatile tool to have in your quiver. In fly fishing, reach and power are good things. This rod has plenty of both at a price that will have you smiling all the way to the water.
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.
