Put a bunch of guides and a couple of rod designers at a table with the world's finest fly rod, add a few cold ones, and ask them: "If you could do anything you wanted to customize this fly rod, what would you do? Thus the birth of a special edition Helios 2 rod, the Helios 2 Covert. Totally blacked out with matte black finish, black guides and black hardware, no flash, no shine. The Covert is the finest fly rod in the world with the added dimension of being a wicked-looking fly rod, the likes of which have never before been seen. The Helios 2 performance is still there, the pure pleasure of casting a Helios 2 remains, but now there's some serious attitude. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont, USA.
