Great fish! I've always wanted to catch a Tigerfish. You guys have a lot of courage doing in water shots out there. The guide I was with in South Africa wouldn't let us get close to the water on account of concern that a croc could show up. On that side of the world, trying to DIY can easily be fatal.

I agree completely... the Helios 9wt is fantastic rod. My first impression was that it felt like I was casting a 5wt. It's unfortunate that the big "O" hasn't received the recognition for the Helios that I believe it deserves. I think a lot of it is because of their "closed" marketing which meant that independent shops weren't handling the Orvis. There are signs that this may be changing a bit as I've seen more and more independents carrying the Orvis brand.
