Hydros Superfine

Our Hydros Superfine fly line delivers superior stealth and technical performance.


An excellent fly line choice for spring creeks, slow moving, and clear water situations where stealth and technical expertise are at a premium. Even the color is designed with stealth in mind. Specially designed weight-forward taper loads rods at short distances but still affords delicate presentations.

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. Hy-Flote Tip — Highly specialized Micro-balloonsTM concentrated in the front of the line to produce high floating tips.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. Core — Braided multifilament core provides excellent performance over a wide range of conditions.
6. 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.

    An excellent line - 1/14/2015

    Having just bought a superfine touch rod,this line was obtained to match it.I have used it once when grayling fishing and was deeply impressed with its smoothness, castability and most importantly its ability to present weighted and unweighted flies with a very high degree of precision. It floats high on the surface and lifts off with a minimum of disturbance. Strongly recommended.

    Beautiful Presentation - 1/8/2015
    By: from N Ireland

    I never thought that I would be as happy with a fly line as I am with this one.As it was a WF2 I wasn't expecting it to cast too far and I was wrong.This line casts where you want it to go and with a soft delicate landing that surprised me and not the fish.It is very fluid like through the eyes of my rod and lands nice and straight in the water.Top marks ORVIS for a really fine product.

    Nice line but a bit heavy - 12/17/2014
    By: from Montana

    This WF1F shows all the quality that the Hydros fly line is noted for--however, when I weighed the first 30 ft it showed 75 gr. That's 15 gr over the standard of 60 gr for a weight 1 fly line. To be honest, it did feel a bit lighter than my DT2F fly line when cast in the yard so I'm keeping it

    I bought this line in 3 different weights and they cast perfectly. No effort on long casts, did exactly what Orvis stated it would do. I am very pleased

    Great on Superfine Glass - 11/30/2014
    By: from Asheville, NC

    Have this on an old Battenkill II disc drag on my 4 wt Superfine Glass rod. Perfect pairing! Cast great, tracks well, lands soft. This is my go-to small water setup and is just a joy to fish. Roll casts great w/ 2 small nymphs or can drop a # 22 parachute Adams on a dime. Love it!
