Hydros 3D Bank Shot Line

Hit those big fish lies quickly with this quick loading streamer fly line.


The best thing to happen to streamers since the Woolly Bugger, the Hydros 3D Bank Shot fly line for streamer fishing is designed to deliver big flies with minimal back casts, thanks to a 3D-textured 23' quick-loading head. Ideal for single-hand Spey and roll casts, this two-tone line offers a low-visibility olive tip for stealthy presentations and an orange running line for better tracking.

    5 WT Chucking Line - 4/17/2014
    By: from Alpine, UT

    This line is going to take some getting used to. It feels much heavier than a standard WT line and I have only practice casted in the back yard so far, but you can chuck this line a good distance with out much of a back cast and there's no need for multiple false casts. This line loads fast and shoots like a rocket.

    Purchased the 6 wt and tried it out on my sister's farm pond; the season does not start for a week yet. Throws a size 4 streamer no problem.

    great line for long roll casts - 10/14/2013
    By: from PacificNW

    I have the 8wt Bankshot matched to a 6wt Helios switch rod and it's a fantastic combination. I imagine it would be great on my 9ft 8wt single-hander as well but I haven't tried it. This is essentially a shooting head with integrated running line. Sinking poly leaders work well with this for streamer fishing and swinging wet flies. This line roll casts farther and easier that any line I have ever used. Fun to shoot out a bunch of line across the river...

    The Hydros 3D Bank Shot Line is a great addition to the Orvis Line of Flylines. It is my new go to line. Is super when you don't have very much room behind you.

    Bombs away - 5/27/2013
    By: from Wilmington, NC

    This is a home run guys. Loaded my ultra fast 8 weight and shot a mile with no effort. Ultimate boat or bank line. Slick, supple and low memory. Roll casts for days and cuts wind. Minimal water slapping and turned over my biggest flies with no problem. A must have.
