Orvis Hydros II Euro Fly Reel Review

Utilizing the same reliable drag system as the Hydros Reels, the new Orvis Hydros II Euro Fly Reel is tailored for the demands of high-stick Euro nymphing techniques. Utilizing a fully caged frame, the Hydros Euro Reel prevents thin running line and light tippet from slipping between the frame and the spool, potentially costing you the fish of a lifetime. 

Orvis Hydros II Euro Nymph Spool

The Hydros Euro reel features the same stacked carbon and stainless-steel disc washers drag system from the Hydros series and the smooth startup that prevents sensitive and thin tippet from snapping. 

Orvis Hydros II Euro Nymph Frame

Orvis set out to produce the finest Euro nymphing reel in the Hydros Euro and they may have very well succeeded in that endeavor. The Hydros Euro Reel is super smooth, is machined to tight tolerances, features an ergonomic drag knob, and is a user-friendly construction which perfectly complements 10' to 11' nymphing rods. 

The Orvis Hydros II Euro Fly Reel retails for $279.
