ORVIS HELIOS-3 BLACKOUT 8’5” 8-WEIGHT FLY ROD - Big fish are ghosts. They vanish and quickly reappear where you least expect. This rod thinks quicker, obsessively designed to overcome instantaneous directional changes that would normally require three, four and five false casts to correct. That’s the philosophy behind this 8’ 5” surgical 8 wt. The product of strong collaboration, it’s what happens when longtime guides bring complex fishing scenarios to our rod designers. The result is a high-concept, boat rod designed specifically for the quick-turn, one-shot accuracy required to stay ahead of fast-moving bonefish, reds, permit or even pike. While this rod has the power of an 8, it feels more like a 7 with a slightly shorter length perfect for fine tuning your loops and driving flies under heavy cover. It’s a high line-speed titan in salt or fresh. Reel seat is type III anodized aluminum in Midnight black w/Matte Midnight carbon insert. Black blank, black accent wrap, black/black main wraps, REC recoil snake guides and SiC/titanium stripping guides. Weighs in at just 3 1/2 oz. Backed by the Orvis 25 Year Guarantee. Made in Vermont.
