Helios 3F 6-Weight, 9’6″ Fly Rods offer enhanced accuracy and feel at mid-range distances. The Helios 3F 966-4 has a purpose in life and that is to handle heavier rigs and flies for big trout or bass. With the length you need for line control and the backbone you need to fight bigger fish, the Helios 3F 966-4 is the perfect rod to take to Alaska for big rainbows drifting egg patterns through a river full of spawning sockeye, or swinging big Tequeelys in Montana. Big bass bugs are not a problem and with the enhanced accuracy, that hole in the lily pads is a cinch. Put the fly where it belongs and stay in the zone longer. 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 9’6″ 6-weight Fly Rod is an awesome big fly / big water rod! Even though this rod being is 9’6″ long, it actually feels like a 4-weight! This rod can put a fly in a tea cup at 65 feet! We love this rod for streamers but it’s also a great tool for double nymph rigs and big dry flies.  This rod is perfect on the Missouri for streamers, nymphs and hoppers and perfect for the Smith and Blackfoot for the big bugs we fish on those waters.  This is another rod popular with our Guides because it’s got enough power for Clients that are new to casting to punch out a good line and it mends so well. It can also be used as a light saltwater rod like smaller Bonefish or inshore for smaller Snook and Jacks and more. Basically, a great fly rod!
