We’ve been field testing the Orvis Helios 3 for the past 10 months. We’ve fall in love with the ‘feel‘ line of this soon-to-be-released fly rod. A proper review is coming but it’s featured in this video from earlier this summer as Amelia takes on a good brown in a small creek. The crystal clear water allowed us to spot this trout – it appeared as a smudge moving about the bucket to a trained eye. With no back cast room and little room for line control on the drift, Amelia was able to snap a bow & arrow dap-cast to put the dry in front of the fish and there was enough room to lift the rod tip to minimize the amount of leader on the water to ensure a proper drift. Bingo!
