    I purchased this line for fishing medium to big sized streamers on my Helios 2 5wt. It performs well and cast great. The sink tip is great no need for weight while fishing faster water. I recommend This line to anyone head hunting big water for big fish!!

    Nice Sink Tip Line - 11/13/2014

    I bought a 5 weight Hydros Streamer Stripper line for use with a fairly light weight rod for boat fishing on my local reservoir. I'm pretty pleased with it; it has a fast sink tip, which, in addition to being useful for getting un-weighted streamers and lures to a decent depth quickly, also works well with a team of buzzers and nymphs. The line casts beautifully, it loads my rod effortlessly and you kind of feel that all the technology put into the Hydros line series is somehow there. With so many great lines out there, it's difficult to decide which one to buy these days, but this line is certainly up there with the best of them.

    Hydros Streamer Stripper - 11/5/2014
    By: from Mentor, Ohio

    I have used the Hydros sink tip for many years of trout fishing and would not consider any other. It takes my streamers or nymphs into the fish zone with-out adding shot to the line. I fish mostly moderate to small size streams that run clear and the trout a very wise.

    I recently picked up this line for fishing big streamers for fall and winter brown trout. It is absolutely perfect for the task. The 4ft sink tip is just the right length for getting the fly down, and the remaining floating portion of the line makes for easy mending and picking up for the next cast. It loads quickly and punched the fly exactly where I want it, especially when I am trying to pinpoint it up against the opposite bank between the brush. This is the perfect big-streamer line.

    Perfect depth - 2/10/2014
    By: from Texas

    Purchased this line a few days before I went streamer fishing for trout. Caught five fish on the first five casts. Excellent for double hauling once you time it for the sink tip. The beauty of this product is the perfect depth placement in the water column. It puts you where the fish are.

    Not bad - 12/31/2013

    Finish is a little rough but the line gets down. Much better than the intermediate sinking line (orange color).

    Well Designed for both Rivers and Stillwaters - 8/21/2013

    This line is effective in both rivers and stillwaters to get streamers, wets and nymphs deeper in the water column to the fish. The combination is fairly easy to pick up and cast. I recommend a fast action rod for better casting distance.

    Outstanding design - 5/14/2013
    By: from Oregon

    This must be the most intelligently designed line yet for use with nymphs. It casts like a FT, rolls like a DT and mends like any premium floating line. Top notch for fast streams two to four feet deep. Very few snags as you don't have to weight the leader. Excellent performance in very cold spring water. This is a must have in your line arsenal!

    By: from Holland Patent Ny

    Thecontainer was a soft cardboard that fell apart while I was winding the line to my reel. The line dropped to the floor in a tangled heap. I threw it away and was realluy upset that a company like orvis would change what was good packaging.I have bought several lines and reels from you , Never again
