It's possible to be both versatile and specialized. Just fish with the 105-4 Helios 2 fast action 10-foot 5-wt. and try to think otherwise. Its long reach powers your casts when fishing from drift boats and pontoons, and provides enough line control to roll cast and mend on any sized stream. We've taken an excellent trout rod and simply made it 10 feet in length. You can't have too much of a good thing, right? 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.
