These have got to be the best looking rods ever made, and they really do cast like a dream. 

Accuracy with a whole lot of power—the Helios 3 Fly Rod casts like a dream.

The Helios™ 3 Blackouts Have Landed

Available now, three new high-concept, supremely accurate H3 rods designed to excel in specific angling scenarios.

Spend seasons in boats and on the banks with storied guides and the planet’s fishiest DIY anglers and you’ll learn the fishing quickly takes a backseat to deep conversations. That’s when our rod design team listens the hardest. We cataloged input, cherry-picked consistent themes, and obsessed over our anglers’ needs, wants, and challenges to design technique-driven tapers that answer the constantly evolving question of “What if?” with “Here's what.” 

Each new model is accuracy with purpose and exactly what you’ve come to expect from the leading name in innovation because our process is really quite simple: Fish with the best anglers, listen instead of talking, take notes, and you can’t help but return the favor with the best rods. 

Description
