Orvis Helios 3F 9' 6wt
Free Shipping on Orders Over $50
The 9' 6wt Orvis Helios 3F is the perfect heavy do-all rod, but with a softer touch. This rod has an overall softer action which allows for easier loading and casting regardless of the conditions. It excels at throwing hopper-droppers, nymph rigs, and streamers on a floating line. It has plenty of backbone to still fight big fish, but due to softer action don't plan on throwing any sinking lines with it.
Here's What Orvis Has To Say:
Not only have we built a super lightweight rod in the Helios 3, but it also offers a crisp feel in hand for an unbeatable casting experience. Accuracy is important. Hurling a fly across the water and hoping for a strike won’t win any trophies—it’s those accurate drops that bring in the real prize. The difference in a couple of inches can make or break a catch.
The Helios 3F reduces the variables and harnesses the energy behind each cast for enhanced accuracy, so you can reach the far bank and drop a fly with precision every time. We’ve checked unbeatable accuracy and power off the list, but the H3F also delivers the finesse required to delicately drop a fly without spooking fish, and it has plenty of backbone to haul in the big fish of your dreams without flinching. Whether you’re chasing bonefish on the flats or casting streamers to the far bank, the Helios 3F offers the outstanding casting performance and responsiveness you need to land more fish.
