Hydros Tarpon Line

Be ready to tackle the silver king with this slick shooting tarpon fly line.


Designed to deliver large flies with a minimal amount of false casting. Two-tone tarpon fly line with stealth tip. Second color change at 30' from the tip helps to measure distance on featureless flats and provides an ideal load point. Heavy, compact head loads fast action rods quickly and accurately with smooth, positive leader turnover.

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 Loops — New sleek and durable welded loops make leader attachment quick and easy while holding up to repeated use. Helps to transfer energy more efficiently to the leader allowing better turnover.
4. Rear Loops — Saltwater lines have an enhanced rear loop as well for attaching to backing.
5. Core — Braided monofilament core offers outstanding performance in hot, humid saltwater environments.
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.

    Great Tarpon Line - 2/23/2014

    The Hydros Tarpon line is a very good line. I have it on both 10 and 12 weight reels. It has a great taper and is fairly easy to throw even in windy conditions. Reacts well in hot saltwater conditions.

    smooth casting line - 6/21/2013
    By: from Homossassa, Florida

    I noticed an immediate improvement in the ease and length of my casts with the Hydros Tarpon Line. Even jumped a tarpon first time out. I credit the line with enabling me to get the fly in the right place at the right time.

    good enough line bad packaging - 12/16/2012

    Recently purchased 10 wt and used in belize shortly after. Line performs well and shoots fairly easily. While I understand the drive to be eco-friendly, the cardboard spool this comes on is worthless. Most folks will generally have another (or old) line they would like to store on the spool from the new line, and this isnt really practical with the spool this comes on. That alone might be enough to consider another brand of line in the future, especially when at this price point.

    Tarpon at night - 6/20/2012
    By: from Atlanta, Georgia

    Great balance for the 10wt Helios Rod. The Head was just right for quick short casts for sight fishing. It was easy to reach them at 80ft too.. The thing liked the most was at night, I could feel a distinct end to the rear taper and then shoot the last back cast and launch the forward cast in to the night. Strong welded loops.

    Very good ... but - 4/16/2012
    By: from France & Florida

    That line is absolutely perfect, it can quickly load the rod, has virtually no memory and allows for accurate shots ... but who had the bad idea to put a cardboard spool almost impossible to reuse to store the line.
