Recently, I bought an Orvis Recon 8 wt rod that I plan to use for redfish, bonefish, etc. Looking for a mid-priced (under $100) saltwater floating fly line that will work well with this rod on the marsh and flats. What are a few good line options for the saltwater Recon? Thanks.

Try the Orvis Hydros Saltwater or the Rio or the Rio Summer Redfish, i recommend disyance casting small flies to big reds. I would tie a third of my flies on #6, and the rest on 4s on up.

I have a gen 1 Recon 8wt and really like the SA grand slam. I have it in amplitude and mastery. Both are versions are great.
