    ORVIS HELIOS 3F 905-4 FLY ROD : 9'0", 5WT

    The Orvis Helios 3F 905-4 fly rod may be the finest all-purpose 5wt trout rod ever made. This 5wt is the perfect choice as an all-purpose trout rod for virtually any fishing situation. The 3F 905-4 also makes an exceptional smallmouth bass rod. The Helios 3F 5wt rod is designed for exceptional accuracy and flawless, smooth fly presentations. The Helios 3F 5wt is the most accurate fly rod ever built with the ability to place a fly exactly where you want it. This Helios 3F 905-4 will launch streamers to that sweet spot against the bank at 60ft, toss bass poppers to smallmouth bass, and present a beautiful dry fly at 70ft. This versatile 5wt has amazing responsiveness and line feel and will allow you to cover big water like never. This 5wt will be the anchor in your arsenal and your favorite rod!

    Orvis Helios 3F fly rods were designed to significantly reduce the variables at the point of release, focusing the energy of the cast to the intended target. No matter what happens behind you, the energy of the forward cast is crisply released through a tight window created by a very significant reduction in horizontal and vertical tip frequency. This Helios 3F 5wt autocorrects for all variables in the cast, so all energy is focused on the release to the target with incomparable precision. In other words, the Helios 3F fly rod makes any angler a better caster, which leads to more enjoyment on the water, and more fish landed.

    Great Action, but. . .

    The craftsmanship is not what is expected at this price level. The threading at the guides contains gaps and thick spots. Hopefully the lacquer holds.

    Picked up a H3F 905-4 about a month ago. First impression, it's incredibly light in hand and the large white logo didn't bother me near as much as I thought it would. While I've yet to upgrade my 5-wt line as planned, I did give it a trial run utilizing a spool of well worn Hydros Trout WF5F line I had rigged on my old 5wt Frequent Flyer. Starting with some shorter casts (<30-40') in the grass, I'd describe the accuracy as decent. I wasn't placing an Adams in a tea cup, but I was consistently dropping my fly within 18" of my target even with a light crosswind. Moving to the water, results were similar at this range. My accuracy was certainly improved, but not as much as advertised. How much of this is a testament to my casting skill or line selection can be left to interpretation. As I extended my casting distance, however, the rod really began to shine. Wanting a moving target, I set a small leaf adrift in the pond and waited for the breeze to push it down the bank. Once it had drifted 40-45', I began casting. To my amazement, the vast majority of my casts began landing within inches of the leaf. And more amazingly, continued to do so to just past the 55' mark. Only past the 60' mark did the rod begin to feel limited again, and this may once again reflect more on my limitations than on the rods. Overall, this rod easily deserves a 5-star rating. It is incredibly light and responsive. And casts exceptionally well. While it left a little to be desired at shorter distances, it absolutely excelled between 45' and 55'. I eagerly await the opportunity to see how it feels with a fish on the other end of the line.

    Love this Fly Rod

    It's all about the feel with the 3F! Perfect for dries and can handle weight. I've had multiple flies on with weight and the performance is still there. Accurate as all get out! One of my favorite rods of all time!
