The Helios™ 3 Blackouts Have Landed

The Supremely Accurate Euro-Nymphing Machine with a Welcomed Extra 6" of Drift Control

There's always something more you want from your euro nymphing setup; More reach to hit that seam on the far bank, more sensitivity to detect even the most subtle strikes, less swing weight, and fast tip recovery to place your nymphs on a dime drift after drift, etc. The new Orvis Helios Covert Blackout 11 foot 3 weight is here to deliver the next-level euro nymphing tool. Despite being an 11-foot rod, this 3 weight feels light in hand and will allow you to tuck cast your nymphs into the strike zone and keep them there throughout the drift. The extra reach allows you to hit that one pocket that always seems out of range, and the strong butt section of this 3 weight will help you haul out whatever fish may be lurking there. Stealthy, deadly accurate, and strong enough to rope in whatever you may encounter on the river, the new 113-4 Covert Helios 3F is the ultimate tightlining rod.

It’s what happens when you unleash American ingenuity on constantly evolving European-nymphing techniques.

This, our four-piece, 11' 3-wt. Euro-nymphing rod, is the latest development. A supremely accurate 11' rod with the swing weight of a 10-footer, it’s got the unreal sensitivity to telegraph the exact number of times your nymphs kiss gravel. Translation: Significantly fewer missed strikes and more fish to hand. Note the 11' length—that extra 6" is crucial for intuitive drift control in extremely complex current seams with a softer tip to protect even the finest tippets.
