THE bonefish line,
February 9, 2015
By: Woodylover
from Caye Caulker, Belize
"I took this line to Belize to flats fish for bonefish and was not disappointed. First cast was perfect and landed a nice 7lbs bonefish. It is subtle and delicate, just what is needed for spooky bonefish. It is not the line for throwing big meat, it is a line that can cut through most wind on the flats and lay a shrimp in the water with out making a splash and spooking the fish. excellent line."

An Excellent Fly Line,
February 4, 2015
By: fishslayer74
"I just used this line on a bonefish trip and I couldn't have been more pleased with this line. I loaded so nicely without any effort. I've used other fly lines from other companies up till now and when I need to replace them I'll definitely consider the other Orvis lines. Thanks for a great product at a great price."

Hydros fly line slippery as a devil,
January 26, 2015
By: dougbass
from Miami, Fl
"I've replaced the line on my Sage 8-wt rod with the Hydros Bonefish line and it shoots great. Much more distance than my last line. Also, no memory in the line which is great. No more stretching the line before I use it."

excellent line,
September 11, 2013
By: Rigs
"Not used this line for fishing yet, but have loaded it on to reel.
I was very pleased withe thickness of this line and the very useful welded loop on the 'reel end'. Do not normally get this with other lines so makes it very easy to load or underload. On a practice cast line rang smoothly through rings.

Andros,
May 20, 2012
By: Steeliechick
from Joulters flats, Andros, Bahamas
"I took this line to Andros for a week of fly-fishing on the Joulters. The line delivered--70+ fish. Incredibly smooth, I was able to cast 90' (according to my guide) and land a single on my last day. The line was light enough to see during long casts on the flats. I appreciate Orvis's commitment to detail by keeping the first section of the line light blue so as to minimize spooking. The line was not high maintenance (I cleaned it twice), and held up to long days in the sun, hard running fish, and loaded easily. I highly recommend this line."
