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 the 11-weight, 9' Helios 2. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont.
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.
