Every serious angler needs a powerful rod for double streamer rigs and heavy nymph setups.

From light steelhead action to dry flies from drift boats, the 906-4 fast action 6wt. Helios 2 will pounce on the opportunity to prove us 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.
