There are times when freshwater fishing needs a little more muscle like banging the far bank of the Big Horn from a drift boat with heavy streamers or dropping a big honking deer hair frog in the middle of some lily pads. The EVA foam-and-cork fighting butt offers the leverage to drag a fat bass out of the weeds, and the 7" full wells grip means it will be a comfortable fight. In the fresh or salt, this rod is perfect for everything from light bonefishing, sea trout, puts new meaning into the fun of chasing schoolie stripers, and is a go to streamer rod in western waters. 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, USA.
