Imagine the Helios 3F 905-4 fly rod, in all its technical grandeur, customized by a remarkable artist into a beautiful piece of functional angling art—this custom rod from our Artist Collab line delivers. Famed fishing artist Tim Johnson is working with Orvis, hand burning a magnificent image of a brown trout rising to a mayfly into the cork grip. Each image in this special edition series is different as Tim makes subtle changes to make them even more unique. The freshwater reel seat receives a special California buckeye burl wood insert, the identifier flag on the blank is olive, and the blank itself is matte black. The rod tube is a matching matte black with a glossy black tonal Helios 3 logo. This is unquestionably a dream rod for any angler and is destined for heirloom status. Made in USA.
