Orvis Helios 3D 6-weight 9′ Fly Rod

Helios 3D 6-Weight, 9-Foot Fly Rods are designed for exceptional accuracy but with enhanced power. They are the most accurate fly rods ever built but offer remarkable strength and the ability to place a fly where you want it at distance.

The Helios 3D 906-4 is a big water, the big fly workhorse for trout and bass that can pound the banks within inches at sixty feet. It can handle a heavy nymphing rig with ease.  Or it can drop a bass bug in a distant lily-pad hole with ease and deadly accuracy.

No cast ever thrown is identical to any other cast ever thrown. The variables of the caster, rod, and conditions are too great. Helios 3D was designed to significantly reduce the variables at the point of release, focusing the energy of the cast to the intended target.

No matter what happens behind you, the energy of the forward cast is crisply released through a tight window created by the most significant reduction in horizontal and vertical tip frequency ever conceived. It is a rifle in a world of muskets and it autocorrects the variables of the cast to the target with incomparable precision.
