Great new fly rod -
By: Buttons1938 from Lake Charles, LA
I just purchased an Orvis Helios 2 twelve weight 9 foot, 4 piece fly rod and I like it very much. I will not be able to fish tarpon with it until May, but I strung it up with leader and fly and made several casts with it. It is light in weight and very responsive. I have fished tarpon since the late 1960's and I believe this is the best casting rod I have ever used. I can hardly wait to fish tarpon with it!
