The Orvis Company broke into the market about five years ago with the Helios line of rods. As the worlds lightest and most accurate rods they soon became the most decorated rod in history, receiving numerous awards from all the critics of the fly fishing world.
However, every great era must come to end. This time it happened with grace as the Helios stepped down to the new and improved Helios 2, but don’t turn your back on the old model just yet. The original Orvis Helios is still a great rod and maintains itself as one of the most rewarded fly rods. It is still preferred by some over the new model and requested by many on a daily basis.
So what is the deal with the sale? CrossCurrents is offering a $375.00 gift certificate with the purchase of any remaining original Helios models we have left in stock. This is a great way to get into one of the best rods in the market for an awesome price. The gift certificate is enough to cover the price of a new reel and line to help get that rod ready for the river. Stop by one of our shops or give us a call to get your hands on one of these fish catching tools. We will be happy to string one up and let you cast it in the front yard.
Here is what we have left in stock: 8’4” 3-wt Mid-Flex, 9’ 4-wt Mid-Flex, 9’ 5-wt Mid-Flex, 9’ 6-wt Mid-Flex, 9’6” 6-wt Tip-Flex, 11’ 5-wt Switch, 11’ 6-wt Switch, 13’ 7-wt Spey.
