The Long-Range Nymphing Weapon with the Accuracy for Pinpoint Dry-Fly Presentations
We like to refer to 9 foot 5 weights as the 7 iron of the fly fishing world. Versatile and capable for a wide variety of fishing situations. Well, this Orvis Helios Covert Blackout 9 foot 5 inch 5 weight is the 7 iron to rule them all. With a little extra reach, you have complete control over your mending, roll casts, and presentation - all without adding unnecessary swing weight. For throwing dry flies, dropper rigs, indicator setups, and even some small and light streamers look no further than the new Orvis Covert Blackout 955-4 Helios 3D.
It began as a supremely accurate 9'5" 5-wt. boat rod, with superb long-range mending abilities on both reach casts and on-the-water drift manipulations straight to the indicator.
Field-testing proved it’s also a 5-wt. that impresses when it’s time to hop a gunnel and fish backchannel sippers on foot. That extra 5" is the secret sauce, providing added lift on your back cast without feeling overwhelming, with the comparable length advantages of a 10-footer in a rod that feels more like a 9. Simply put, it’s a nymphing weapon and your dream dry fly or hopper/dropper combo all in one. Made in Vermont.
