You don't fly fish for accolades. You don't hike along boulder-strewn mountain streams to make a name for yourself. You don't spend hours tying up bushy attractor patterns to get a better job. You don't use small flies and delicate tippets in order to drive a better car, impress strangers, or conquer the world. You fly fish for yourself, no matter where it takes you. Let the 3-weight, 7'6", Helios 2 be your guide. You'll like what you discover. 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.
