The Helios 2 is a featherlight war club that defies the laws of physics and has the backbone of an I-beam. Lighter in hand and 20% stronger than any rod we’ve ever developed, it transitions energy directly from your brain to the fly and casts with the precision of a laser pointer. Made by hand in our Vermont rod shop, it’s a fly rod built by anglers who fish their way home from work, anglers with sunglasses-shaped tan lines, anglers who tie blood knots in their sleep.
Through the flapping wind, your guide yells instructions. It's a coordinated effort, him poling the skiff into position, you the proud bearer of some unseen pressure to make the perfect cast. You've dreamt of this moment since the first time you picked up a fly rod and you don't want to blow it. Into the wind, you lay out your line as far as possible. A tarpon peels off from the passing school, opening its mouth as it inches toward your fly. What happens from here is anyone's guess. Give yourself the advantage. Fish with a 9', 11-weight Helios 2. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont, USA.
