If ever there was a standard for all-around performance on larger streams, rivers, and lakes for multiple species of fish, it's the Recon 5-Weight 9' 4-Piece Fly Rod. The 905-4 is a rod that can handle big trout, bass, and panfish from coast to coast. This length/weight rod is the number one selling configuration. Its length and mid-range line weight give it great versatility for dry-fly fishing, streamer fishing, perfect for a drift boat, and nymphing mid to light/heavy rigs. When you want to cover water, throw everything from an Adams to a deer-hair popper, the Recon 905-4 is an exceptional choice for all-around versatility in a mid-price fly rod with premium performance built in.

When headed to big water, you want to be prepared for big fish, wind, and the ability to throw big flies—and the Recon 6-Weight 9' 4-Piece Fly Rod fits the bill perfectly. Versatile and accurate enough to drop a dry fly in a far tight window, and yet with the power to cut through the wind and deliver a big streamer to a far cut bank or a big popper to a hole in the lily pads. Heavy nymph rigs are not a problem, either. There are times in freshwater when bigger is better. If big rivers, lakes, and big flies for big fish are your passion, the Recon 906-4 is a mid-priced powerhouse that will do the job and then some.

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.
