As you probably know, Helios was the personification of the sun in Greek mythology. So it seems appropriate that, on a day when so many people are focused on the sun, that we should celebrate with a giveaway of a new 9-foot 5-weight Helios 3 fly rod. It’s tough to eclipse that deal, huh? One of the beauties of the Helios 3 is that you can, in fact, stare right at it without damaging your eyes, so feel free to give it a once- or twice-over.
Here’s how the contest works: All you have to do is click the “Answer a Question” bar in the widget below to tell us where you’d like to use your new fly rod (were you to win, of course), and you’ll be entered in the random drawing.
One lucky winner will receive the most versatile Helios 3 for freshwater anglers, the 9-foot 5-weight, and can choose between the Helios 3D or Helios 3F versions. (The “D” is for Distance, and the “F” is for Feel.)
If you’d like to double your chances of winning, subscribe to the Orvis Mailing list, too, using the same widget.
The contest runs through Thursday, August 31, and one winner will be chosen at random to receive a 9-foot, 5-weight Helios 3.
The sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of the USA who are 18 or older. (We apologize to our readers in Canada and overseas; Click here for an explanation of why we have to do this..)
