The Orvis Hydros Fly Reel is an example of taking something great and making it even better! Orvis worked to remove unnecessary weight from this best-selling fly reel, resulting in a stiff and narrow spool that is perfect for minimizing line stacking. The Hydros Reel features one of the strongest drag systems on the market, with an enhanced drag knob for more comfortable drag adjustments. The refined seal on the drag mechanism offers better protection for the clutch bearing for a fully sealed drag system. The Hydros is a large arbor reel, giving it an edge on balancing lightweight fly rods. New and improved, the Orvis Hydros Fly Reel is undoubtedly one you need in your fly fishing collection!
