Hydros Easy-Mend

Achieve longer distance drifts with our Hydros Easy-Mend fly line.


The extra-long head creates a fly line that excels at mending and managing the drift at long distances. The orange-tip version acts as a strike indicator to help detect subtle takes when high-stick or Czech nymphing. Great roll-casting ability and can be used with single-hand Spey casts.

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.

    Easy Mend 3wt For Nymphing - 9/8/2015

    I purchased this line to use with an 11ft nymphing rod on rivers in England. So far, I've found the long head makes it easy to aerialize the line for long casts, and it's also easy to pick up a longer line and lay it back down and also to make longer mends. Again, for winter grayling fishing, using a short line Czech nymphing method, I'm sure this line will be fine. As usual, all the qualities of Orvis are encapsulated in this fine and delicate line.

    Good Buy - 12/16/2014

    The built-in loop to attach the leader knotlessly is cool as well as the WT id on the line. The sale made this an especially good deal.

    Good product; okay customer service - 11/13/2014
    By: from St. Louis, MO, USA

    I've used the line for fishing already. It definitely makes a huge difference to use a quality line from Orvis. I ordered the line to go with a reel I purchased. When I got the reel, though, the line wasn't invluded even though I ordered both at the same time. There was no explanation at all about why the line wasn't included. Only after I called did I get an explanation.

    Not pleased out of the box - 8/19/2014
    By: from Milwaukee, WI

    I was shocked to see as I took the line out of the package that it did not have a loop on the reel end. In this day and age of fast line changing, why would you force me to have to tie on a loop to the end of your line? You have one in the front. I have only thrown the line in my yard, but so far so good. Will test in Montana next month.

    Best Line EVER - 8/8/2014
    By: from San Antonio, TX

    I bought this for my uncle and he sent it home with me to spool up for him. Before leaving for my Wyoming trip, I asked him if he cared if broke it in for him. By the time I returned, I told him he wasn't getting it back! Casts beautifully...excellent mending. Our "trout season" here in Texas is about Nov. through April...looking forward to using this line in the Fall!

    By: from Little Rock, AR

    using on a Helios 2 switch rod , 7wt and 11' length. This line make the rod come to life on the lake and river. No problems and lots of fish. I catch and release and have seen a lot of beautiful fish these past few weeks. Thanks ORVIS, a product that works and works well.
