Light saltwater is some of the most fun you can have with a fly rod, and the Recon 6-Weight 9' 4-Piece SW in the saltwater configuration is the weapon you want. Whether schoolie stripers or bonefish on a calm flat, hooking into a saltwater game fish with a light rod is pure enjoyment. But make no mistake, the Recon 906-4 SW has the ability to handle the task, cut through the wind, and with its improved accuracy, provide you with the perfect fly rod at a price you'll love. The best part is this is a great double- duty rod for freshwater as well, offering exactly the same performance as the freshwater Recon 906-4, only configured with a solid aluminum reel seat and a fighting butt. Helios™ 3 is the benefactor behind the new Recon, 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.
