Hydros Bass/Warmwater Line

Easily turn over big flies with our Hydros Bass/Warmwater Fly Line.


Fishing for bass requires the ability to get big flies in tight places. This line has a compact head and short front taper to turn over the big deer hair poppers and sliders with ease. Drive flies into tight, heavy cover, under branches and back in holes where large bass lurk. Cast into the wind with less effort. Works great with heavy nymph rigs at short to medium distances.

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. 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. 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.
4. Core — Braided multifilament core provides excellent performance over a wide range of conditions.
5. 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 chartreuse. 90'. Line weights 5-9. USA.

    Best fly line yet - 4/14/2014
    By: from Okeechobee, Florida

    I am very pleased with this fly line. It is the slickest and best shooting line I have used and floats very well. Will be replacing my other lines with this brand soon.

    Very good upgrade - 1/13/2014

    I just received this line and have tried casting. It really allows me to cast the big bass flies well. I had to change out the line that was on the Encounter Series rod I recently purchased. I realize that this was an inexpensive outfit, but the rod and reel were fine. The line, however, was of very poor quality and would not lay out flat when casting because of memory of the reel. This new line really makes a difference and I now have what I need for fishing the ponds and creeks around my house. Thanks.

    My son has used Orvis' fly line before but just received this line for Christmas so can't really judge the longevity of it. He is definitely an Orvis fan though!

    A great bass and pike line - 11/4/2013

    Super line for your freshwater game fish. It feels a bit heavier like it is perhaps 1/2 weight higher than marked. It seems to cast farther than my other lines of equal weight and similar WF design.

    Great line - 9/29/2013

    I have been using Orvis lines exclusively since 1993 and have liked them all. The hydros is just the latest advance in lines. I will be using the 6 wt with my Orvis superfine rod.

    Great for Bass - 6/24/2013
    By: from Stamford, CT

    Used this up at my lake house in Maine for small and large mouth bass...enough tough enough for the random pike I catch. Excellent for whipping out those heavy poppers into tight spots. Definitely would recommend this line!

    90ft with large popper - 6/17/2013
    By: from Atlanta, Georgia

    The first day I fished it from the canoe and it would punch in to the cover well at 40ft. Happy with that, but then I was messing around on a water level dock and wanted to see how far it would cast a large popper...I shot the whole line and 7ft leader. I had to come in and read the line length just to see if it was a short line or something. Great line.

    bass - 2/25/2013
    By: from Michigan

    if you are a serious largemouth or smallmouth bass fishermen you need this line it flips large deer hair flies with ease. You can easily tell the difference when using this line while bass fishing over a plan weight foward line.

    Worked great for me. - 11/5/2012
    By: from Dallas, tX

    "You can't "learn how to cast correctly" in a month!" Of course you can. Then again, I've been fly fishing for 35+ years and have been told I can't cast worth a hill-o'-beans.
