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.
In a culture that wants everything bigger, stronger, and faster, sometimes slowing things down can provide the greatest benefits. If you prefer parachutes to tungsten, live for emergers, and shudder at the thought of coneheads, this is the ideal fly rod. This medium-action Helios 2 5-weight 9' fly rod handles long leaders and light tippets with kindness, but won't shy away from those stubborn trout who won't eat anything that doesn't include rabbit strips and rubber legs. Be ready for anything that swims your way knowing that the best 5 wt. fly rod is in your hands. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont.
