Our Thoughts:

The 9' 5wt Orvis Helios 3F is one of the best do-all trout rods out there. It has a softer tip which allows to easier loading and casting regardless of the conditions. It can gently land a dry fly to rising fish, but still has enough reserved power to easily turn over nymph rigs and light streamers. If you need just one rod in your quiver but aren't a fan a fast rods, this is the rod for you.

Here's What Orvis Has To Say:

The most accurate fly rods ever built. Helios 3F offers accuracy with enhanced feel and finesse. The Helios 3F 905-4 was designed to put an Adams in a teacup from 40 feet. The ultimate big river rod when delicacy and pin-point accuracy spell success. Matte Storm blank. Reel seat is type III anodized aluminum Midnight black w/ Matte Storm carbon insert. Green accent wrap. Black/gray main wraps. REC recoil snake guides. SiC/titanium stripping guides. Aluminum rod tube made in USA. No cast ever thrown is identical to any other cast ever thrown. The variables of caster, rod, and conditions are too great.

Helios 3F 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. Rod outfit includes: American-made Helios 3F 905-4 Fly Rod, American-made Mirage II in Pewter, American-made Hydros WF 5 Trout line,100 yds. of 20 lb Dacron backing, and American-made rod tube.
