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.
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.
