Orvis Hydros SL Reel

A large arbor workhorse, Orvis’ Hydros SL fly reels are an indubitable staple amongst fresh and saltwater fly fishermen alike. Available in five sizes to work with line weights across the board, the Hydros SL, according to Orvis, delivers a “12% increase in line retrieval thanks to our super large arbor.” No doubt, retrieval is unabashedly smooth, startup inertia remarkable, and drag off the charts—especially for the price. And while the arbor is large, the spool is slim—simultaneously minimizing line stacking and maximizing backing capacity. Also, the drag mechanism is sealed to encourage oceanic endeavors. Pair it with the Helios 2 for a killer combo.
