It's for light steelhead work throughout the Great Lakes. It's for covering as much water as possible on large, western rivers. It's for protecting your tippet as a brown trout shakes its head in dismay. It's for a little extra reach when controlling your line. It's for tangling with bass and large bushy poppers. The 6-weight 10' Helios 2 is built for many things; mostly, it's built for you. It's up to you to figure out just where you need it. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont. USA.
