A sharp black tail slices through the surface, then disappears in a whisper. Your eyes scan the flat as your pulse pounds like a bass drum. "Two o'clock, 40 feet!" your guide yells. With nothing more than hope and a backcast, your Helios 2 10-weight 9' fly rod lands your fly near the first permit of your life. You strip once, strip again, forgetting for a moment everything else. This is your time. And this fast action 10 wt. is your fly rod. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont, USA.
