Orvis Helios 3D Saltwater Fly Rod & Reel Outfit Combo for Saltwater Fly Fishing  

Orvis designed the Helios 3D fly rod to cast at impressive distances without sacrificing power—and it hits the mark every time. We’ve reduced the variables at the point of release to focus the energy behind every cast. Increased hoop strength means reduced vibration for a crisp release every time, because we know accuracy is paramount. The H3D rod churns out precise casts that are the stuff of legend—because it’s the pinpoint delivery of flies that takes you from a quiet day on the water to battling predator fish ripping down the flats. 

Pushing through a gusty saltwater wind is no big deal—the Helios 3D has the power to get your fly there, and the accuracy to drop it right where you want it. Whatever the location, whatever the fish, the H3D is ready for it: big rivers or saltwater, bonefish or bass—those accurate drops earn more bends in the rod, it’s as simple as that. Get the most accurate fly rod in existence and land more fish on every trip. 

These are some of the most accurate fly rods ever built, offering remarkable strength and the ability to place a fly where you want it at distance. For example, the Helios 3D 11 WT is designed for light offshore and medium tarpon. When accuracy and distance are critical in putting a fly through a tight mangrove window to a laid-up tarpon, this Helios 3D 11-weight is the perfect weapon. Big permit on the flats, mahi and football tuna offshore, or gator blues and striper cows in nasty rips, this rod has what it takes. Don't ever go out there undergunned. Helios 3D was 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 the most significant reduction in horizontal and vertical tip frequency ever conceived. It is a rifle in a world of muskets and it autocorrects the variables of the cast to the target with incomparable precision.
