Default Re: Any experience with Orvis Helios / Hardy Sintrix??


Many thanks for your comments - thatīs GREAT!!

I already have one RST (German brand) #3-4 wt. rod and an Orvis Frequent Flyer #3 wt. rod.
The RST rod was a one-off production in 1995 and is a little bit too "rough" and handles also a 5 wt. line, but for nymphs it is OK (I guess they shorten a 5 wt. rod). The Frequent Flyer is a very nice rod, but I use the Frequent Flyer just for travelling and it also a little bit too long (8ī6").

Because of that I am looking for a real sensitive, shorter rod for the fine dry fly fishing (or very light nymphs), which has a first-class workmanship
Best regards from Germany,
