Orvis Helios 3D Blackout 955
9' 5" 5 weight, 4 piece fly rod
If you spend much time in a drift boat out west, there will unquestionably be early and late season days spent fishing deep nymph rigs along seams, drop-offs, and mid-river buckets. Long drifts, quick hoot sets, effortless mends and lifting power make all the difference on terms of success at the end of the day. The 955 Helios 3D Blackout from Orvis is the perfect western nymphing fly rod, yet still works wonders as a techie dry fly rod on our big rivers. Made in Vermont.
The Blackout series includes three application specific models built on the Helios 3 fly rod platform, finished out with a full, matte black blank featuring the "Blackout" logo.
The Helios 3D fly rods from Orvis are purpose-built to deliver accuracy at distance in the most technical of situations. Lightweight blank designs ensure feel throughout the casting stroke to enable the angler to keep tight loops for pinpoint accuracy. Increased hoop strength is the key component tot the intuitive accuracy that comes with the H3D series.
