  • AST Plus treatment provides continuous slickness that incorporates completely, continuously migrates out, works longer, and is eight times slicker than any other slickness additive available for better shooting, improved floatation, and performance. Easily sheds dirt and oils allowing line to perform better longer
  • Orvis Line ID quickly identifies the line with the taper, weight and functionality
  • Enhanced welded loop makes leader attachment quick and easy while holding up to repeated use. Helps to transfer energy more efficiently to the leader allowing better turnover
  • All PRO lines are 90' in length and incorporate three color sections at 8'(stealth tip), 30' (from the tip), and rear taper and running line

The Story

PRO Trout Textured Fly Lines offer increased surface area, allowing the line to sit higher in the water, offering less drag, easier mending, less water spray and easier pick-ups. The micro-textured surface traps air to provide increases in both shootability and flotation while decreasing friction. PRO Trout is designed with advanced compound tapers to be the best all-around trout line available, and is the most versatile trout line available for multiple techniques and environments. The 50' head has a gentle front taper followed by a powerful belly for easy casting and delicate presentation. Longer rear taper is designed for better line control, casting, and on-water mending.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sadly not working Me and my buddy have been Orvis fans for decades, and still are. We have tested the #6 PRO Trout - Textured on lakes and rivers with the Helios 3D rod (a perfect rod !), and sadly we cannot agree with very positive comments this line has received. Pro’s Flies in the air perfectly, very nice end loops Floats high on the water, easy to retrieve. Makes a nice noise through the runners from the textured (personal preference) Low resistance on the rod runners while retrieving Cons It just does not cast ! There is something wrong with the weight and the balance of the sections. We needed considerable effort, and even then the distance was mediocre. We tried it on a different selection of #5 and #6 rods, and the result was not much different. After half a day of strenuous casting, sore shoulders had us give up. Take for example the Hydros Bank shot, maybe not as elegant in its flight movement and landing on the water, but with just one back cast, we could cast further than four to five back and forth with the textured line. Conclusion This line is now retired, and definitely not worth the nearly double of say the Bank shot. It might come out for showcase swimming pool casting, but not for catching trout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall, I am very happy with my choice. After using HyFloat lines for many years, I needed new 4wt & 6wt WF lines. After doing some research, talking to the pros at the VT store, and talking to the pros at Avon, I decided to buy the Pro Textured. I fished the 4wt last week ... what a welcome change. I was able too cast where I wanted to, even with a wind. It did take a little time to get used to the noise of the line shooting thru the guides. So far, very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is a outstanding fly line. I was somewhat reluctant at first because of the price but I was not disappointed. It casts amazingly easy, floats great, picks up easily off the water and is well worth the money. Just a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beginner accelerant Still learning the fly fishing game and this line was recommended to me as a replacement of "very average" line that came with my first "real" reel. Casting more fluidly for sure, but to my surprise, mending really IS easier with textured line. You get what you pay for and I'm glad it stepped up...
