ORVIS HYDROS II EURO FLY REEL
The wildly popular euro nymphing technique is not only a very effective way to fish, but a new tool in our quiver while targeting trout. Orvis debuts its first fully caged European nymphing machine on the backbone of the popular Hydros series reels. Given this style of fishing heavily leans on impossibly thin running line or monofilament for casting, Orvis modified the Hydros II into a Euro version with a full cage and tightened the tolerances to completely eliminate lines from slipping between spool and frame. Orvis also increased the reel’s weight slightly to better balance with the 10' and 11' rods so common in Euro circles. The reel includes a more ergonomically accessible drag knob. A refined seal on the sealed drag to protect the clutch bearing in the drag mechanism. That radiused reel foot for kink-free leader protection. Above all, it’s still got the bombproof, truck-stopping, fully sealed Hydros drag system with stacked carbon/stainless steel disc washers and zero startup inertia. In matte olive with silver accents.
