Helios 3F 7-Weight, 9′ Fly Rods offer enhanced accuracy and feel at mid-range distances. The Helios 3F 907-4 can handle everything from big trout to larger bass. Big flies, poppers, bulky deer hair patterns, heavy nymph rigs, no problem. Excellent streamer rod for throwing weighted lines and big weighted streamers. 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.  Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont, USA.

Shop Staff Notes:  The Orvis Helios 3F 9′ 7-weight Fly Rod is an awesome fly rod for Carp (we love fly fishing for Carp!), big Trout (think LOG or Alaska) or light saltwater (thing Belize Bonefish, inshore FL or Redfish). This is a bit similar in function to the H3D 907-4 but is loads a bit deeper and is a little softer for making accurate casts at shorter distances (say, within 50 feet).  Strainer likes this rod for Carp when fishing some of the smaller flies for those giant goldfish -it has tippet protection and loads very easily at short ranges. This is a fun rod to fish for big trout in the LOG on the MO and those big leopard Rainbows in Alaska.

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.
