The delicate beauty of a brook trout is hard to ignore. Flaming red fins capped with snowy white tips emerge from a body dotted with orange specks and blue halos. In tumbling mountain streams, they slash at flies, as eager to eat as they are terrified of the unknown. Bringing one to hand is a joy; fishing for them with the 2-weight, 6' Helios 2 is sublime. The old axiom that claims size doesn't matter? Bull. In this case, the smaller the better. 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.
