The delicate beauty of a brook trout is hard to ignore. Flaming red fins capped with snowy white tips emerge from a body dotted with orange specks and blue halos. In tumbling mountain streams, they slash at flies, as eager to eat as they are terrified of the unknown. Bringing one to hand is a joy; fishing for them with the 2-weight, 6' Helios 2 is sublime. The old axiom that claims size doesn't matter? Bull. In this case, the smaller the better. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont. USA.
