Hydros Tarpon Line

Designed to deliver large flies with a minimal amount of false casting. Two-tone tarpon fly line with stealth tip. Second color change at 30' from the tip helps to measure distance on featureless flats and provides an ideal load point. Heavy, compact head loads fast action rods quickly and accurately with smooth, positive leader turnover.

Great Tarpon Line,
February 23, 2014
By: UncleB
from Maple Valley, WA
"The Hydros Tarpon line is a very good line. I have it on both 10 and 12 weight reels. It has a great taper and is fairly easy to throw even in windy conditions. Reacts well in hot saltwater conditions."

"I noticed an immediate improvement in the ease and length of my casts with the Hydros Tarpon Line. Even jumped a tarpon first time out. I credit the line with enabling me to get the fly in the right place at the right time."

good enough line bad packaging,
December 16, 2012
By: blacklabs
"Recently purchased 10 wt and used in belize shortly after. Line performs well and shoots fairly easily. While I understand the drive to be eco-friendly, the cardboard spool this comes on is worthless. Most folks will generally have another (or old) line they would like to store on the spool from the new line, and this isnt really practical with the spool this comes on. That alone might be enough to consider another brand of line in the future, especially when at this price point."

Tarpon at night,
June 20, 2012
By: Southpaw
from Atlanta, Georgia
"Great balance for the 10wt Helios Rod. The Head was just right for quick short casts for sight fishing. It was easy to reach them at 80ft too.. The thing liked the most was at night, I could feel a distinct end to the rear taper and then shoot the last back cast and launch the forward cast in to the night. Strong welded loops."

Very good ... but,
April 16, 2012
By: Francois
from France & Florida
"That line is absolutely perfect, it can quickly load the rod, has virtually no memory and allows for accurate shots ... but who had the bad idea to put a cardboard spool almost impossible to reuse to store the line."
