Well, you’ve known that the new Orvis Recon fly rods have been coming for months (we posted about it here and here), and we’re excited to announce that they are now available in stores and online. In fact, we are so pumped about the launch of this new series and about the fact that the Orvis Fly Fishing Facebook page topped 100,000 followers last week, that we’re giving away a new Recon.
Here’s the skinny on this new series:
Recon is the all-new rod designed for the anglers who chase blue lines on topo maps and spend their nights bent over Google Maps, plotting the next day’s adventures. For those who choose riverside meals of granola bars and jerky paired with the evening hatch over a sit-down meal at a sane hour. For anglers who would rather spend the day in the front of a skiff than behind a desk, we’ve created a rod ready to work as hard as you do in the pursuit of fish.
Recon teams high-performance feel with lightness in hand. With close-in loading ability and the power for longer reach, the rods feature a modern shadow green blank and covert black nickel hardware. Proudly made in the USA by people who love fishing as much as you do.
All you have to do to enter the contest is use the widget below (not the comments section) to tell us where you’d use your new Recon the first time, and you’ll be entered in the random drawing. One lucky winner will be able to choose from among the array of Recon rods–from a 3-weight trout stick to a 10-weight saltwater weapon.
You can double your chances of winning by subscribing to the Orvis Mailing list, too, using the same widget.
The contest runs through Friday, January 16th, and one winner will be chosen at random.
