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. In willow. 80.5' total length. One line fits 1- to 4-weight nymphing rods. Made in USA.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Was a beginner to Euro Nymphing and Tommy one of the store associates helped me with getting started. Recommended this line and I couldn’t be happier with it. Orvis always has exceptional customer service and products. Can’t go wrong with this line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Nymphing Line I would recommend this line to anyone wanting to nymph. Cuts down on drag remarkably compared to my weight forward line. Better casting than expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fly line. I fly fish West Virginia waters year round, so Hydros Tactical Nymph is best for me because it also floats and I can switch over to dry flys at anytime of the day. Love this line!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Improvement Compared to Rios FIPS, and I have FIPS on 2 reels, I have to say that this is overall a better line. Sag comparable, but sensitivity is noticeably better and I like the solid color rather then multi.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dose the job Bought myself the Clearwater 10' 3wt to try out euro nymphing have had the set up for about 2weeks now great package, just be careful the flyline is very delicate, had mine crack then went to pull line out to cast and it snapped,thank god there is a loop on the other end I just flip flopped it to remedy the problem

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sensitivity Great sensitivity with tight line nymphing. Also use it for short dry fly drifts. Tip starts to sink when attempting drifts longer than about 20-30”. Overall it’s worth the money.
