Why would Orvis take one of the world's best fly rods and change it? The answer is simple. They're driven by constant improvement. Put this rod in your hands and feel the rush. You'll completely understand.
You see that brown trout gently sipping sulphurs in the back eddy over there? He's not going to catch himself. Tie on a cripple, put on some floatant, and make sure you have this Helios 2 in your hands. The rest is academic. Lighter in hand than the original Helios, and with unrivaled tracking ability, this medium-action 5-weight feels just as home on the Madison or Snake as it does on that little brook running through the woods by your house. This all around trout fly rod will handle flies, fish, and rivers—large or small—with equal aplomb and sensitivity. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont.
