Fish with ninja-like stealth
The idea for the Orvis Helios 2 Covert fly rod started when guides fishing a prestigious permit tournament sat down with Orvis rod designers and asked for a rod with no shine or flash. Thus the Helios 2 Covert was born totally blacked-out with a matte black finish, black guides and black hardware. Word has it the tournament was won with this rod, so Orvis has now opened the doors to fishing with this wicked instrument of stealth.
Casting and performance wise, the Covert is exactly the same as the Helios 2 – the most advanced rod Orvis has built. The lightweight feel will surprise you given the unparalleled strength of the blank. Never fear pulling on monster fish with this stick. The tapers transfer energy through a smooth curve giving the Helios 2 that “wow” factor. Tack on the industry-leading 25 year Orvis guarantee and this is a rod you can have all the confidence in the world in.
