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.

    A very slick line that is great for roll casts or distance casting. The line floats well for perfect mending and spot on drifts. A great value for any angler. Buy it!

    I'm not an expert on fly lines but the Orvis Hydros Trout line that came on my new Mirage reel works really well for me. It glides through the eyes easily and the revised taper diameters with a slightly larger head gives me the distance when I need it.

    Hydros Trout Lines - Worth the $ - 1/7/2014

    You never go wrong with an Orvis fly line. Quality product that delivers and if you maintain the line, it will provide years of service. The Hydros product line offers the next level of performance as technology in the sport matures. Good Stuff!

    Disappointed - 11/21/2013
    By: from Hawkes Bay, NZ

    Purchased this line for the new season. Within two weeks of use the welded loop had started to crack. Tried to save the loop with super glue and other materials but did not work. In a month cut off the loop and nail knotted the leader. Working fine now. Like color of double taper and casts well, disappointed on initial quality.

    The line is as easy to cast as any I have used. I have caught more fish because I feel I can cast to the spot that is my target . Maybe it's a confid ence thing, but thanks.

    Very Good Fly Line - 9/15/2013

    I have used the Orvis Hydros line in WF5-F weight since its introduction. It loads my Frequent Flyer travel rod beautifully, it is accurate and durable. Pretty much maintenance free after a couple of years of use.
