    Default Re: Orvis Recon 3wt 10ft

    Have used several brands of nymph specific lines with the same problems you've encountered. Currently using a 10' 2wt and a 2wt WF line. After experimenting, I attach 8ft of #20 mono, 20" of bi-color indicator, and 6ft of 5X or 6X tippit. When nymphing with this setup there is no slack in the guides while it casts very well to 40-45 ft. It works with or w/o indicator. I use no splitshot, just the nymph weight. The same setup works on my 10' 3wt with 3wt line. The Recon is a great rod. Hope this helps.

    I just use backing tied directly to hand tied euro leader for my Euro setup.
