Since the Helios 2 rod has a "black nickel" (dark gunmetal-gray) reel seat, I would suggest getting the Mirage reel in the matching black nickel finish, rather than gold. If you are going to fish mostly small streams with it, the flashy gold is also more likely to frighten fish accidentally than the darker finish.
