Helios 2 12-weight 9' Fly Rod—Tip Flex

5⅜ oz. 9' 4-piece Tip Flex big game fly rod for 12-wt. line. A 150-pound tarpon swims defiantly into view some 50 feet away. Perched on the casting platform, your hands shake as you begin your backcast, and every muscle in your body focuses on this instant. Your lungs exhale an anxious air, equal parts anticipation and pure exhilaration. Your time is now. Your rod is here. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont, USA. Why would we take the world's best fly rod and change it? The answer is simple. We're driven by constant improvement. Put this rod in your hands and feel the rush. You'll completely understand.

"I just purchased an Orvis Helios 2 twelve weight 9 foot, 4 piece fly rod and I like it very much. I will not be able to fish tarpon with it until May, but I strung it up with leader and fly and made several casts with it. It is light in weight and very responsive. I have fished tarpon since the late 1960's and I believe this is the best casting rod I have ever used. I can hardly wait to fish tarpon with it!"
