Hydros Bass/Warmwater Line

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

Details

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.

    Excellent bass line. Purchased the 5 wt for panfish and smallmouths that are typically on the smaller side. This line handles large flies very well. Doesn't curl, shoots extremely well.

    I am new to fly fishing, and am still learning the in's and out's. I am able to cast fairly well, and the bass flies turn over very well. First day out, caught 4 small bass. I plan on getting more of this for my 5 wt.

    best fly line I've used - 4/29/2014
    By: from Texas

    I have used several brands of fly lines on my 6wt rod (TFO) and this Orvis line is by far the best I've used (cortland, basspro/white river, RIO, and Scientific Anglers). It loads up great, allows me to turn over large bass flies, and casting into a stiff wind is easier than ever before. Line memory is almost non existent. You won't be disappointed.

    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.

    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.
