Looking for a New Fly Rod This Spring? Check out the Orvis Helios 2

This complete Orvis Helios 2 fly rod review will give you the low-down on this quality rod.

Trident fly fishing gives a in-depth Orvis Helios 2 fly rod review and gets out and demonstrates its castability.

A great review that not only talks to the Helios 2 design features but also gets out and demonstrates how well and accurately it casts. With improvements to the Helios like making it 20% stronger, lighter and a drastic increase in tip-impact strength you are looking at a rod that is an industry leader.

I own two Orvis rods, and the first thing I noticed when I got my first fly rod was how much lighter in the hand it was compared to other companies’ rods. Once I got the Recon I knew I was onto something very special with a rod that will let me fish small streams and rivers alike. Orvis makes rods that really encompass quality and pride, the Helios 2 is another fine product that signifies excellence in craftsmanship.

For a full look at the Helios 2 line of fly rods check out the Orvis site, buy an American made rod and get their 25 year rod repair guarantee. Get the outfit and Orvis will provide a Helios 2, quality Mirage reel, Hydros line, backing and rod tube, all you have to do is put on a leader, some tippet your favorite fly and get on those spring fish.
