The Helios™ 3 Blackouts Have Landed

The Line-Speed Titan Designed for Unreal, Quick-Turn, One-Shot Accuracy

Streamer fishing has grown and changed a lot in recent years, so why shouldn't our streamer rods do the same? The new Orvis Helios Covert Blackout 8 foot 5 inch 8 weight is here to provide the best tool for feeding big flies to big fish. From swimming an articulated streamer through structure on a riverbank to punching a deceiver through the wind on a skiff, this rod has you covered. The shorter length on the Orvis Helios Covert Blackout 858-4 helps you drop your flies onto the "X" and begin swimming it immediately. Large and heavy modern streamers will benefit from the punchier casts coming off of this 8 weight, and the stouter action means that you are in more direct control of animating the fly, allowing you to get better movement out of your articulated streamers. The next time you want to "fish meat", reach for the Orvis Helios Covert Blackout 8 foot 5 inch 8 weight.

Big fish are ghosts. They vanish and quickly reappear where you least expect.

This rod thinks quicker—obsessively designed to overcome instantaneous directional changes that would normally require three, four, and five false casts to correct. That’s the philosophy behind this 8'5" surgical 8-wt. The result is a high-concept boat rod designed specifically for the quick-turn, one-shot accuracy required to stay ahead of fast-moving bonefish, reds, permit, or even pike. While this rod has the power of an 8-wt., it feels more like a 7-wt., with a slightly shorter length perfect for fine-tuning your loops and driving flies under heavy cover. It’s a line-speed titan in salt or fresh. Made in Vermont.
