Recon teams a high-performance, fast action feel with light swing weight. With close-in loading prowess and the power for longer reach, Recon rods boast a completely new ferrule design, a modern shadow green blank, and covert black nickel hardware and reel seats. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont, and complete with aluminum rod tube, cloth rod sock and 25-year guarantee.
For the anglers who chase blue lines on topo maps and spend their nights bent over satellite imagery, plotting the next day's adventures. For those who manage riverside meals of granola bars and jerky, hastily consumed while watching rising fish. For anglers who would rather spend the day in the front of a skiff than behind a desk.
For many anglers, the 905 was the first rod they ever fished. And there's a reason they are still fishing it today. Lightweight with the backbone to throw long casts in a breeze, yet retain the delicacy required for a perfect cast to spooky trout, the 9-foot five-weight fly rod is a classic. Reborn once more with the shadow green blank and sleek design of the Recon, it is ready for a new generation of exploration. The appropriate flex has been built into the rod, eliminating the need to worry about tip- and mid-flex designations. Crafted with a completely new ferrule design, a stealthy shadow green blank, and heavy-duty black nickel hardware, the Recon is ready for your next adventure. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont.
