Hydros Class V Sink Tip Line

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.
2. Orvis Line ID — Quickly and easily identify your line, no more guessing. All of our lines will be printed with the taper, weight, and functionality.
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.
5. Environmentally Responsible Packaging — Our new paper pulp spool, made from recycled cardboard and kraft paper, is 100% compostable and further enhances our commitment to protect our natural resources.

    Perfect 4 weight sinktip - 4/15/2015
    By: from Chicgo, IL

    The 4 weight sink tip worked flawlessly getting flies down to the trout in the streams of southern Wisconsin. The floating section was very easy to mend to keep in straight contact with the fly and allow it to stay deep, catch and land/release a 27 inch, 5lb steelhead. Will use /purchase again.

    top shelf quality - 2/18/2015

    I have lived with the mantra of "a poor man can only afford to buy something only once", and I don't keep up with the Jones's. My research of products and money keep going to Orvis items. Using the Class V sink tip was different than floaters. But with a little practice and patience I am now getting to the big Browns and Rainbows in my favorite tailwaters and lakes.

    Fast Sinker - 2/17/2015
    By: from Siesta Key, FL

    Had this line set up on my new Recon & Access 9 wt outfit and works great in the fast tides in Siesta Key Bay. Needed to get deep in the water column with the cooler weather and did the job. 5-10 sec count & over the grass flats for the tempting retrieve.

    Great line for streamers - 2/4/2015
    By: from Winooski, VT

    Great presentation and casting performance. I partnered this line with a Clearwater 9-wt for heavy streamers, and it's been great so far. Highly recommended.

    I was able to purchase this line at a sale price through Orvis. I love it and i love that they make things like this more affordable throughout the year. The product is as good as Rio or AirFlo sink tips. Thank You.

    Class V Sink Tip Line - 6/12/2014
    By: from Upstate NY

    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
    By: from Green Lane, PA

    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.
