The Story

Hydros Bank Shot Float is designed to be a versatile, quick-shooting fly line to handle a multitude of situations. Great for one-time casts to a bank, delivering large flies, roll casts, and single hand Spey. This line is powerfully built with a short, heavy head to load the rod quickly and reduce the need for false casts. Smooth coated line with AST patented dry-slick technology provides continual line protection and slickness. Dual welded loops for easy, seamless connection to backing and leader. Orvis Line ID for quick and easy identification. Color change at 30'. Light willow front. Orange rear.

90' total length. Line weights 5-11. Made in USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very fast line Paired with 6wt Recon. Loads rod quickly and sends line out very fast. Running line is much thinner than I expected. Easy to get tight loops. Pick up 30’ of line and shoot out to 65’ without a false cast or haul.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the wait I have limited arm and shoulder power and find difficulty in generating power. But with the Bank Shot I am able to achieve reasonable distance on cast without undue effort. For whatever reason I find this a more effective line than other sold with an "aggressive" taper. But be aware if you are in the UK this line is from USA and it takes an inordinate amount of time to get it delivered and Orvis are not the best at communicating delivery time and dates. But it is worth the frustration of waiting when you get to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It will fly! Use it on my 6wt Helios D and a ZG Helios 8 wt, primarily targeting bass. I'm usually throwing Clousers, Buggers, Deer Hair poppers and other heavy or bulky flies from sizes 2/0 down to 6. I'm not a great caster and I often fish from a seated position in my inflatable, and this stuff will sail a big popper 50 feet easily with only a haul or two. Good stuff!
