Hydros Running Line

Our Hydros Running Line delivers excellent fly line performance and compatibility.


Easy to handle with superior shooting properties. An excellent complement to any shooting head system.

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. 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.

    The best running line made - 10/21/2014
    By: from Seattle

    I don't get excited about some Orvis fly lines, but these Hydros running lines are exceptional. I measure running line quality by the propensity of the line to resist tangles and knots during a cast. I have tried running lines from all the US and European labels. Compared to all others, these Orvis lines tangle least with no close second. I love them! One negative: They could be cheaper. They cost substantially more than most running lines. I have friends who like them, but say they are not worth the extra cost.

    Slick! - 5/23/2014

    I use this line as a shooting line for single and two-handed casting in both freshwater and salt. It is a super-slick line that is easy to grip. I've never been much of a fan of monofilament shooting lines as they are hard to grip and shooting distance didn't seem to improve much anyway.

    Great Running Line - 4/30/2014

    Running this line in conjunction with Skagit and Scandi heads and it has worked great. In fact, it works so well that I cut the head off of my Hydros Switch line and threw out the running line on that and just put the head on here. Much faster than changing spools since it has the large loop connector, and it slides through the guides much better.
