Helios 2 5-weight 8'6" Mid Flex Fly Rod Outfit

2¼ oz. 8'6", 4-piece, Mid-Flex fly rod for 5-wt. line. 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. 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 best dry fly rod made. 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. It will handle flies, fish, and rivers—large or small—with equal aplomb and sensitivity. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont, USA.

Simply Awesome!,

"I purchased and took the new Helios 2 to Patagonia in January and it did not disappoint. I had been looking at the original Helios for a while when Orvis came out with this one. The 5 weight outfit with the mirage reel is simply awesome. It handled everything Patagonia threw at it with ease and now I will continue to use it here in the U.S on my favorite rivers and streams. I'd recommend it to anyone who is serious about fly fishing and wants the best."
