Ten miles downstream from you, salmon leave their saltwater world, driven to the rivers by an instinct that includes one purpose: to reproduce, then perish. Call them kings. Call them chinook. Call them silvers. Call them cohos. Call them reds. Call them sockeyes. Regardless of their name, salmon deserve respect. You stand in this pristine place, knee deep in a glacial flow, watching the colorful procession, the cycle of life, and you want to be a part of it, if only for a moment. You reach out with your cast, hoping to commune, hoping to feel something. Get 11 feet closer to vitality with the Helios 2. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont.
