Helios 2 5-weight 7'9" Fly Rod—Mid Flex

Details

2⅛ oz. 7'9", 4-piece, Mid-Flex fly rod for 5-wt. line.

Everyone wants you to cast farther, to explore deeper, to reach out as far as possible. But there's something to be said about focusing on what's close. You laugh at the parking lot casters, the "I can throw a line with my 3-weight" braggadocio and lose count of how many fish you've caught within 10 feet of where you're standing. You cherish these short casts, these communal presentations, and—what do you know?—so does the 5-weight, 7'9" Helios 2. You're both designed to fish, which means you're perfect for each other. 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.

  • 20% stronger than the original Helios
  • 20% lighter in hand

  • Fine-tuned tapers for unrivaled tracking, accuracy, and lifting power
