Here’s a pretty cool video showing the manufacture process for the Orvis Helios 2 back yonder in VT. Good job making a video about building fly rods that I watched to the end. The Helios 2 continues to one of our favorite rods. We posted a review/comparison of the Helios 2 and Sage ONE last year. We received comments and email from all over the world.
Unfortunately, that post got lost in our database crash last year.
If you don’t remember, we love both of these rods, but the Helios came out on top in the power department, and we gave it the advantage when it came to streamer fishing, and tossing big dry-dropper rigs. The ONE we preferred for our technical dry fly fishing on the Missouri.
Now, Sage has introduced the METHOD. We may have to do a METHOD/Helios 2 comparison. Pester Mark and I and we will get it done…
John’s favorite Helios 2 rig:
Orvis Helios 2 9′ 6 weight, Orvis Mirage reel, RIO Ourbount Short full intermediate (entire line is intermediate). My all time favorite streamer rig. It will be getting a workout on the blackfoot and Missouri soon!
