Helios 2 6-weight 10' Fly Rod—Tip Flex

3⅜ oz. 10', 4-piece, Tip-Flex fly rod for 6-wt. line. It's for light steelhead work throughout the Great Lakes. It's for covering as much water as possible on large, western rivers. It's for protecting your tippet as a brown trout shakes its head in dismay. It's for a little extra reach when controlling your line. It's for tangling with bass and large bushy poppers. The 6-weight 10' Helios 2 is built for many things; mostly, it's built for you. It's up to you to figure out just where you need it. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont.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.

Great rod,
May 25, 2014
"Great rod! Just what you would expect from Orvis. I had a 906 Helios 2 tip flex, and couldn't figure it out. So they sent me this one. It's great, super fast and very controllable. Couldn't be happier with it, and the top notch customer service at Orvis."

Just... wow.,
April 24, 2013
from San Jose, CA
"I purchased this to be my primary Steelhead rod as well as trout fishing with heavy streamers. This rod casts what you want it to cast effortlessly and says "that's it?!" The first thing I noticed was how little effort I was putting in to mending line and how much more I was ready for the strike. This rod really does everything for you and I'm spending more time in the feeding zones because of it. The more time your fly is in the feeding zones, the more fish you're going to catch. Just that simple. I cannot see me buying another big game 6-wt. for a very, very long time."
