A small stream fly rod that offers incredible performance.


1½ oz. 7'6", 4-piece, Mid-Flex fly rod for 3-wt. line.

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.

      It was appropriate that I picked up this rod on Valentines Day-I fell in love with it! I like light weight rods and at an ounce and a half you can't get much lighter. It also has great casting sensitivity. Became my favorite rod at first cast. I guess you could say it was love at first cast!

      The HELIOS 2 rod is spectacular! I paired it with a 'Perfect' reel and 3WF line and had the best fly fishing day of my life! Do not even hesitate for a moment. Get the HELIOS now and enjoy the technologigical superiority of the Orvis company today. You will not be disappointed at all!
