Ask Curated a question about this product:

The Orvis Hydros Tactical Nymph Fly Line is designed specially for European nymphing techniqes such as French, Czech and Spanish nymphing. The line is double tapered and thin which increases sensitivity of the line while reducing line sag. This line is designed for Euro-nymphing rod weights 1-4.

Key Features

  • AST Slick Coating - The line is coated with the smooth, slick AST dry-slick technology. This provides protection to the line as well as improved casting.
  • Thin Line - The Tactical Nymph line is ultra thin allowing for increased strike detection and decreased line sag.
  • Dual Welded Loops - The line has dual welded loops that allow for quick and easy attachment of backing and leaders.
  • Orvis Line ID - Line information is typed onto the line making it possible to quickly identify the line type when changing spools or line.

The Orvis Hydros tactical nymph fly line is the perfect line for trout fly fishermen looking to euro nymph. This line has a double taper making it useful for throwing dry droppers or small dry flies as well. It’s very durable and super thin for extra sensitivity while euro-nymphing.

Effortless casting

A nice, light line that casts effortlessly. I like the integrated loop connection. The line flows through the guides smoothly adding control to a soft delivery.

Hydros Tactical Fly Line

Originally posted at www.orvis.com on Sep 22, 2022
Hydros tactical line is easily to handle when needed to add drag by hand and supple enough for delicate retrieval of nymphs. The line rolls on/off the reel with ease. Small diameter adds less drag if the fly line is outside the line guides. Great line for tight line nymphing.

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.
