Helios 2 6-weight 9' Fly Rod—Mid Flex

A lightweight fly rod ideal for larger dry flies or streamers.


2⅜ oz. 9', 4-piece, Mid-Flex fly rod for 6-wt. line.

Not everything needs to be fast in order to be effective. From the casting platform on a drift boat, what matters most is accuracy. The small number of anglers that can put flies within an inch of the bank are the ones who are catching the majority of the fish. So when you find yourself dropping a Copper John from a Chernobyl Ant during hopper season on some Western river, use a rod that will give you an added advantage and a feeling unlike any other. Use the 6-weight, 9' Helios 2. Your cast will thank you. 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.
