ORVIS HELIOS 3D SERIES FLY RODSFast-Action, Accuracy/Distance
There is a famous quote by Wyatt Earp, 'Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.' What anglers discover with experience is just that. In fly fishing, accuracy is everything. Whether it's the right drift in the feeding lane, the sightline of a cruising predator, or the right level of the water column, the difference between success and failure is often measured in inches.
All modern fly rods are powerful, but accuracy is the new frontier in fly design. Making an 80-foot cast in saltwater is prospecting. Making a forty-foot cast on the nose of a laid up tarpon is fishing. Reflect on your greatest successes and failures as an angler and the answer is clear. Accuracy breeds success.
The H3 brings us a fundamental shift from flex profiles to a new frontier in accuracy and purpose-driven design. Helios 3F and 3D each offer uncompromising purpose. 3F is accuracy with finesse, a dry fly angler's dream. 3D is accuracy with power at distance for pinpoint delivery of larger flies. The difference is taper and stiffness, but accuracy remains constant. To play the game at its highest level there can be no compromise and for every angler the H3 is the pinnacle of purpose, designed to master the moment and meet the demands of accuracy on a spring creek with a 3F or a tarpon flat with a 3D. Choose the game, then choose the weapon.Matte Midnight blankReel seat is type III anodized aluminum Midnight black w/Matte Midnight carbon insertBlue accent wrapBlack/black main wrapsREC recoil snake guidesSiC/titanium stripping guidesAluminum rod tube made in USA
