Helios 3D 5-Weight, 9′ 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 905-4 can put a streamer on a dime at sixty feet, and when the opportunities are way out there and the windows are small, this is the rod of choice. No cast ever thrown is identical to any other cast ever thrown. The variables of 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.  Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont, USA.

Shop Staff Notes:  The Orvis Helios 3D 9′ 5-weight Fly Rod is one of the best mid to big river all around fly rod! This H3D can punch out a line like a cannon but with the accuracy of a laser pointer.  This is not a sales pitch or hyperbole (well, maybe a little bit hyperbolic).  This is a great rod to put a dry fly in a feeding lane at 50+ feet -common on the Missouri.  It also is excellent at turning over a buggy Chubby or PMX with a Turd dropper on the Smith, Blackfoot or other freestone.  The H3D 905-4 is also a great tool to flinging double nymph rigs and streamers with sinking leaders.  The first year the Helios 3 were out, this model and it’s H3F counterpart were our top sellers.  We do like to bump up a line size on this model (use a 6-weight line) or fish the SA Amplitude MPX (our favorite fly line here at CCFS) or PRO PowerTaper to load this rod easily and a bit more deeply.  You can’t go wrong buying this rod if you like to fish rivers like the MO.

We also carry the more delicate Orvis Helios 3F 9′ 5-weight Fly Rod for those that like throwing smaller dries or fishing closer in.

H3D or H3F? – Trying to decide between a Helios 3D and her sister, the Helios 3F?  Here is a nice, short video from our friend, Shawn Combs (the Product Developer for Orvis -not the Hip-Hop artist, P-Diddy -though we’ve heard Orvis-Shawn lay down some mean rhymes after a couple of beers at OGR!):  Orvis – Helios 3 Fly Rod – How to Decide Between D and F Version.

Here’s a couple of other short video about the Orvis Helios 3.  They are just fun videos with good information that makes you understand what all the hype is about.  Orvis Helios 3 – Accurate from Anywhere.   Orvis Helios 3 – Trick Shot Compilation.
