A Message to Our Customers

Friends, first week of July and our last week here at 813 Bethel Rd. in Columbus. The end of an era for sure, but the beginning of an exciting new one as well. Coming soon... MRO 2.0!

We are packing things up this week and getting ready for the "big move" which begins next week. During this time of moving the shop, we will be closing things up completely and unable to conduct business in our normal fashion. Here is what is happening this week:

• The online store will shut down for orders this Thursday, July 9th at 6:00 p.m. All orders placed before that time will be processed and shipped as usual.
• Curbside pick-ups of said orders will be available until close of business on Saturday, July 11th at 5:00 p.m.
• We will be closed for business completely from July 12th- July 26th and hope to resume "Normal Operations" in our new location, 833 Bethel Rd., on July 27th. We'll keep you informed if this changes.

Please see our Blog for videos, information and updates.

We thank you for your patience and support of Mad River Outfitters during this transition and upgrade to our business!

Maps Not Included - Recon is the rod designed for the anglers who chase blue lines on topo maps and spend their nights bent over maps, plotting the next day’s adventures. For those who manage riverside meals of granola bars and jerky paired with the evening hatch instead of 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, Orvis 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.

The Recon 4-Weight 8'6" 4-Piece is a trout rod with a versatile length and line weight that has the ability to place a dry fly deftly on the surface, fire a small streamer at a cut bank, or even handle a light nymph rig. If trout or even light bass and panfish are the target, the Recon 864-4 is an exceptional choice for versatility in a mid-price fly rod with premium performance attributes.

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.

Proudly made in the USA by people who love fishing as much as you do.

Features:
• Blanks are matte olive with charcoal and spring green accent
• Quick rod identifier on the blank
• Silver snake and stripping guide
• Pewter type III anodized aluminum reel seat with wood insert
• Nylon covered rod tube
• 25-Year Orvis Guarantee
• Made in USA
