Orvis Helios 3F
With new advancements in material and taper design Orvis has created the Helios 3F for all situations where delicate presentation is to be prioritized over maximum line speed and distance. However, while the “F” stands for “Feel” most of the models in the Helios 3F series also perform really well on medium and long distances aswell and absolutely accell when it comes to line handling and accurate and delicate presentation. Just as the Helios 3D we can confidentely state that these rods are some of the finest rods we have ever tried.
Orvis Helios 3F 7’6” #3
A fine, lightweight rod with a medium-fast action. The Orvis Helios 3F 7’6” is perfect for fishing small dry flies in small creeks, but if necessary you will also be able to precisely present your fly on medium distance.
Orvis Helios 3F 8’4” #3
Slightly longer than the 7’6” model the Orvis Helios 3F 8’4” #3 performs best on short distance both overhead or underhand casting. Perfect as allround rod for dry fly fishing on small streams.
Orvis Helios 3F 10’6” #3
Specifically designed for all different types of euro nymphing techniques. The Helios 3F 10’6” #3 has a very sensitive tip that allows for perfect contact to the fly. Due to its length it can also be used for fishing small streamers, if overhead casting is not an option.
Orvis Helios 3F 8’6” #4
A superb little rod for dry flies, nymphs and small streamers. The Orvis Helios 3F 8’6” #4 performs best on medium distance, but also presents your fly accurately on shorter distances while having enough power to allow for longer casts when needed. Overall the perfect rod for medium sized rivers or any situation were a slightly shorter rod is beneficial.
