Orvis Helios 3F 905 Artist Edition
9' 5 weight, 4 piece fly rod
One of our Bozeman fly shop's favorite all-around trout rods for fishing our western water, the Helios 3F 905 is a performance dry fly rod that delivers on accuracy and delicacy with unmatched ease. The ample power in the blank enables the angler to reach out at distance in the wind and across multiple current seams without sacrificing accuracy in close. This is a great choice for fishing small dries during heavy hatches and attractor dry fishing with small tippets on our larger rivers like the Gallatin, Madison, and Yellowstone.
Imagine the Helios 3F 905-4 fly rod, in all its technical grandeur, 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 brown trout rising to a mayfly 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 Helios 3F fly rods from Orvis are built to deliver accuracy in technical situations with casters of all skill level in mind. 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 H3 series.
The Orvis 25-Year guarantee means we’ll fix your broken rod. If we can't fix it, we replace it, no questions asked.
Purchase an H3, Recon, Superfine Glass or Carbon (since 01/01/88), Clearwater (since 01/01/99), or Clearwater Frequent Flyer rod from Orvis or an authorized Orvis dealer and we will repair or replace it no matter what the reason, for a quarter of a century. Step on it, close the door on it, run over it with the car - it doesn't matter, we'll fix it. If we can't repair it, we'll replace it with a newer model rod of at least equal value. Your investment is assured for a nominal handling fee of $60.
For Helios 3 and New Clearwater series rods, we are excited to offer our new section replacement program. We’re committed to getting you back on the water in 5 Business days.
