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.

Loads quick and is super slick and easy to shoot

Originally posted at www.orvis.com on Jun 13, 2024
I primarily fish small creeks with heavy bank brush and this line is a game changer for shooting under brush for pan fish! Haven’t had a chance to try it on brookies in CO but I’m ecstatic to try it out on trout.

Line color

Originally posted at www.orvis.com on May 9, 2024
The olive color is impossible to see on the water (for the fish and the fisherman/woman). Good luck trying to find the line or your fly in the shade.

I'm an intermediate angler with little knowledge of equipment. Rylyn was very responsive to all my questions, even the ones I thought were stupid. Very open about what he does and how he is paid. I highly recommend him.

I bought an open box Orvis fishing rod and it was at a great price. The condition of the rod and the shipping time exceeded my expectations. The information I received from Capt. Mark was accurate and helpful. I would definitely buy from Curated again.

Helped me with some valuable fly fishing knowledge that I lack coming from the conventional fishing world. Hooked me up with a good starter rod and even price matched it with another company. Will be coming back for a reel soon.
