The Curated Take

Baily Dent, Fly Fishing Expert
By the Expert Community

The camo-colored head on this fly line blends into the canopy overhead and makes it the ideal choice for anyone targeting Brook Trout or doing any type of small stream fishing. This is not a line that is going to cast super long distances so anything under 30 feet this line will excel at. The Hydros Series is the mid-range line series from Orvis and as a result, it does not have a super long life span.

Ideal for
  • Camo head is perfect for spooky fish
  • ideal for small stream fishing applications
  • perfect taper for casting dry flies and dry droppers
Not ideal for
  • Max life on this line is 3 years
  • Not great for longer casts over 30 feet

The Orvis Hydros Superfine Fly Line is designed for trout fishing when flies need to be presented delicately, such as when fishing small dry flies to spooky trout. The line is an excellent choice when fishing small creeks when accuracy and stealth are important so not to spook fish. This line comes in line weights of 1-5.

Key Features

  • AST Slickness - The AST coating on this line not only protects the line but also provides added slickness for smoother and faster casts.
  • Welded Loops - There is a welded loop on each end of the line making it easier and quicker to attach backing and a leader multiple times.
  • Braided Multifilament Core - The core of this line is designed for fishing cold to moderate water temperatures.
  • Orvis Line ID - The line taper, weight and functionality is printed on the line to allow for quick identification of the line when swapping spools or changing line.

Best Fly Line

Originally posted at www.orvis.com on Dec 2, 2023
The best freshwater fly line I have ever owned. Just love the way this line casts and no memory in cooler temps. 53 years with a fly rod and have owned many fly lines. Hands down the best presentation with this line.

Superfine Might Be The Go-To

Originally posted at www.orvis.com on Nov 15, 2023
Love this line. Bought it, as recommended, to go with my Clearwater 7'6" rod for creek casting. Last day of the season I tried it with my Scott GS 884 on big water and it casts like a dream. I think this is my go-to-line. Can't wait for the spring.

Matt was so easy to work with. He answered all my questions and there were many. He offered detailed explanations for his recommendations and sold me exactly what I needed, nothing more and nothing less.
