8'6", 4-piece, Tip-Flex fly rod for 5-wt. line. We set out on an adventure to make the world's lightest fly fishing rod. Along the way, we also made the world's best. If there is a standard in fly rod length and line weight, the 8-foot 5-inch, 5-weight is it. It is easily the most versatile fly rod size out there in its ability to handle almost any situation from panfish and small stream trout to big western rivers, from tiny dry flies to big streamers. When asked we often recommend this configuration as the first fly rod. This new Helios version takes this standard and turns it to one of the best fly rods ever built. The incredible lightweight exaggerates the delicacy and feel needed for dry fly fishing and the strength of the Helios graphite can easily handle big weighted nymphs and streamers as well as the big fish they target. If there is only one fly rod in your arsenal, the Helios 865-4 is the only one you need consider.
