The famous nocturnal Hex hatch of the Midwest (and a few other lucky locations) stirs to the surface mythically large brown trout that only touch streamers for the rest of the year.
Do any of you fellows and gals own an Orvis Helios? I've been thinking of treating myself to a 9' #4 and would like opinions on action, is it a tip or mid flex rod, is the epoxy on the guide wraps first rate? how well is the overall finish of the rod compared to a Sage or T&T rod? Is the cork nice? Thanks.
