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.
The water surrounding the boat is as blue as the rod in your hands. How deep it is, you have no idea. A warm tropical wind races through the air, spreading around the crisp scent of the sea. Your fly looks like a dashboard hula dancer, a fluorescent wig tied to a hook the size of your palm. Primal beasts rise from the depths, slashing at the offering with pure anger, not an ounce of hesitation coursing through their muscles. A sailfish latches onto your fly, and with the high-pitched scream of your reel as a soundtrack, leaps to the sun in blue and gold flashes, its eyes focused on you. He's your Goliath. The 8'6", 14-weight Helios 2 is your slingshot. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont. USA.
