Our Hydros Class V Sink Tip Fly Line makes it easy to fish fast deep water.


The best line for fishing in fast or deep water. Orvis-exclusive 15' super-high-density front taper with a sink rate of 5½" to 6½" per second. Floating belly and rear taper allow for mending and line management for perfect presentation down in the water column.

1. New and Improved Wonderline Coating — Our latest generation of Wonderline coating is 20% slicker than the previous generation, resulting in the slickest fly lines on the market. Casts farther with less effort, produces higher line speeds to cut through the wind and improve accuracy, repels dirt and grime, picks up off the water easier, improves floatation, and reduces tangles. An Orvis exclusive, patented process applied at our facility in Manchester, VT.

3. Enhanced Welded Loop — New sleek and durable welded loop makes leader attachment quick and easy while holding up to repeated use. Helps to transfer energy more efficiently to the leader allowing better turnover.
4. Core — Braided multifilament core provides excellent performance over a wide range of conditions.

    Class V Sink Tip Line - 6/12/2014

    I use this line for casting big streamers to cruising lake trout and salmon in my local lakes. It turns over big flies with ease and has the proper sink rate to get my flies in the strike zone. Coupled with a helios switch rod this is a pleasure for all day casting. Could not be more happy with this product.

    Very Satisfied - 2/21/2014

    I fish for Shad on the Delaware River in PA. This line is excellent when the fish are higher in the water column. I was using a 7 weight, however just purchased a 9 weight and also purchased this line for my new 9 weight. I highly recommend this line due to the ease of casting.

    Not a sinking tip - 10/19/2012
    By: from Grand Lake Stream, ME

    The tip portion of this line does not sink. It is intermediate at best. It is supposed to be denser than the back portion yet a leader breaks the surface of the water faster and sinks quicker. This is a real suprise for an Orvis product. Line was returned w/o any troubles. Reccomend a full sinking "depth charge" for faster water.

    To much memory - 5/18/2012
    By: from Weston CT

    A decent line. However to much memory. Must stretch the line before every fishing trip or it coils.
