Orvis Helios 3F (Finesse) 8' 4" 3 Weight 4 Piece
The Orvis Helios 3D Fly Rods offer enhanced accuracy and feel at mid-range distances. The Helios 3F 8' 4" 3 weight is a pure dry-fly rod that offers a refined length with the delicate feel and accuracy desired to make perfect dry fly presentations. This model has been around for decades and is a favorite among dry fly purists. Now in its latest incarnation it offers uncanny accuracy and the ability to drop a dry fly gently in a precise feeding lane where the difference is of a couple of inches is all the difference in success and failure. The Orvis 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 auto-corrects the variables of the cast to the target with incomparable precision.
