It's for light steelhead work throughout the Great Lakes. It's for covering as much water as possible on large, western rivers. It's for protecting your tippet as a brown trout shakes its head in dismay. It's for a little extra reach when controlling your line. It's for tangling with bass and large bushy poppers. The 6-weight 10' Helios 2 is built for many things; mostly, it's built for you. It's up to you to figure out just where you need it. 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.
