    The New re-designed Hydros Fly Reel for 2020, features a lightweight bar-stock aluminum machined frame and spool, fully sealed drag, and best-in-class line pickup per revolution, buttery-smooth startup inertia and a narrower spool that reduces line stacking. The New 2020 Hydros reel incorporates an improved seal carbon and stainless drag along with a reduction in weight balance for lighter fly rods. The New Orvis Hydros II will match any fishing application and have the stopping power for the largest trout or smallmouth. The newly upgraded sealed drag gives the angler a smoother and more powerful reel for protecting light tippet against these larger trout and smallmouth on a 3-5wt fly rod.

    • Sealed Drag- clutch bearing fully sealed inside drag mechanism
    • Nearly 3X stronger drag with zero start-up inertia
    • Narrow Spool for less line stacking
    • Improved tolerances for smooth operation
    • Increased backing capacity

    • Size: II (3-5wt)

    Seized in Below Freezing Conditions
    Bryan (California) | March 2nd, 2022
    Like the reel and had no issues with it until fishing in sub zero conditions...reel seized up but would free up back in the room at night then seize up again once outside in the conditions...sent it back to Orvis for repair/warranty

    Easy-to-Use, Quality, Affordable
    Christopher (MT) | December 27th, 2021
    I paired this reel with an Orvis Clearwater 9' 5wt and a floating line and it's been a fantastic combination for the rivers of SW Montana. Whether I'm wading or fishing out of a boat, I've found the Hydros reel to be adept and capable for anything that wants to take dries and nymphs. Really easy mechanism to swap out reels (I only have one now) and the drag knob is large enough to grip even with slightly numb fingers. Very smooth drag, and quiet! I'll be using this reel for years to come, I can tell already. That's about what I'd expect from Orvis - even the entrant models seem top notch.

    Great little reel
    Todd (Missouri) | October 8th, 2021
    Really nice reel with the quality you expect from Orvis. Paired with a G. Loomis IMX Creek 4Wt rod and a RIO Creek 4Wt line. Casts are super smooth and accurate. Looking forward to many years of use. Shipping A+++ and really nice service coming fully loaded and ready to fish including a leader!

    Great fishing experience
    ACD (New Mexico) | August 13th, 2021
    Purchased this reel as a gift to upgrade my partner's setup. It handles very well, and the larger arbor style is great for anglers of all experience levels, and who like to work with a lot of line. The drag functions well for all different sizes of catch, and the clean smooth performance is exactly the quality I was hoping for. It's the time and intention put into design that makes the difference between a high quality reel and a cheaper one, and this is one that delivers on the trusted Orvis product quality without breaking the bank.

    Hydros reel
    Jake (Colorado) | February 13th, 2021
    This reel balances and feels extremely good on the Orvis H3F. Not to mention it looks very good too. It also has enough drag to stop a whale.

    Best Small Stream Reel
    MVK (NY) | November 11th, 2020
    Great little reel, drag is smooth and doesn't make clickety-clack sound like a low-end reel. Landed plenty of large browns efficiently with this little tool. Paired up with 10' 3wt Recon.

    Quality Machined, Smooth Reel - great for 9ft 5wt
    Daniel Orr (UT) | July 23rd, 2020
    This reel is made well and you can tell by handling it. Quality machining, clean lines and very smooth drag. Love the indexed drag setting on the knob too. Paired with a 9ft 5wt Winston Nimbus. Made the right choice to go with the II series (3-5wt) vs. the III series (5-7weight). I'd rather be lighter on the reel than heavier, with that rod.
