Hydros Trout Lines

Hydros trout fly lines deliver maximum versatility and performance.


The most versatile weight-forward trout taper we offer, now in the new Hydros configuration. This fly line incorporates five new technological advances including:
1. Hy-Flote Tip — Highly specialized Micro-balloonsTM concentrated in the front of the line to produce high floating tips.
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. 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.
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. Revised Taper/Diameters — An innovative weight forward taper combined with slightly larger line diameters produce a line that is ideal at close to medium range, but still capable of delivering at distance. Longer head than traditional weight-forward lines.
6. Core — Braided multifilament core provides excellent performance over a wide range of conditions.
7. 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.
In yellow, olive dun. 90'. Line weights 3-8. USA.

    Used once and very impressed so far. Loads quickly and easily and shoots smoothly. Floats high on the water. Welded loop and line details stamp are excellent finishing touches. All good!

    Good line for a team of flies on a loch. - 4/3/2015
    By: from Scotland

    Bought to replace an earlier version of this line,which was fairly worn out after a great deal of use. Pleased that the performance is just as good. Head section of the line needed a little gentle stretching prior to use, then I was very happy with it. Nice distribution of weight, suits my casting action. No memory problems. A good line to send a team out on a Scottish loch ( exactly what I bought it for. As usual the service from the Orvis people was first class. Website needs a bit of fine tuning.

    Perfect Match - 1/27/2015
    By: from Overland Park, KS

    This line is a perfect match for my rod and reel. For the price it out preforms lines that are way more expensive and over rated. I can, have, and will out fish anybody on the river or stream. I have 20 and 30 fish days using Orvis products. I have been fly fishing for over 50 years.

    Smooth! - 1/23/2015

    Great line. I had a mid-grade line on my rod and didn't really think upgrading would make that much difference, but does it ever. Love it!
