The trick to fishing for big game on fly lies first in finding a rod that can handle the torture of turning a monster fish. One good surge from a large tuna or marlin can leave you holding a handful of the world’s most expensive toothpicks. That’s why Jim Bartschi of Scott Rods designed the new Heliply 15-weight.

Although Scott’s previous generation of blue-water rods earned widespread acclaim, the new HP 8415/3 combines the best qualities of its predecessors and builds on them. The HP 8415/3 has the lifting power to create more leverage while maintaining length and casting ability.

Constructed from a composite of graphite and fiberglass, the HP8415/3 is virtually unbreakable and by far the strongest fly rod Scott has ever designed.

And just because it’s a stick doesn’t mean it won’t travel. The new 8-foot 4-inch Heliply 15-weight comes as a three-piece rod that weighs only 8.8 ounces. It retails for $595.
