Orvis Helios 3D Limited Edition Artist Series Rod

Helios 3D 8-Weight, 9-Foot Fly Rods are designed for exceptional accuracy but with enhanced power. They are the most accurate fly rods ever built, but offer remarkable strength and the ability to place a fly where you want it at distance. The Helios 3D 908-4 is in its element when the fish are breaking 20 feet further out or the flies are the size of small chickens. Strip out more line and drop it in their lap with distance, power, and uncanny accuracy. No cast ever thrown is identical to any other cast ever thrown. The variables of caster, rod, and conditions are too great. Helios 3D 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.

The ultimate and incredibly accurate bonefish fly rod, the Helios 3D 908-4, customized by a remarkable artist into a beautiful piece of functional angling art—this custom rod from our Artist Collab line delivers. Famed fishing artist Tim Johnson is working with Orvis, hand burning a magnificent image of a bonefish pursuing a shrimp or crab into the cork grip. Each image in this special edition series is different as Tim makes subtle changes to make them even more unique. The identifier flag on the blank is ocean blue and the blank itself is matte black. The rod tube is a matching matte black with a glossy black tonal Helios 3 logo. This is unquestionably a dream rod for any angler and is destined for heirloom status. Made in USA.
