My first impression of the Orvis Hydros II Euro Reel were wow! It’s really an attractive reel, and I love the matte green color paired with the matte black drag knob and reel seat. I put black backing on it to make the matte green color of the reel stand out more, because I just enjoy a good looking set up.
The reel is lined up with the Orvis Hydros Tactical Nymph line, and its new home will be on an Orvis Recon 10′ – 3 wt euro nymphing fly rod. I plan on fishing this set up for trout on the driftless streams of Wisconsin and Minnesota. What’s your first impression of the Orvis Hydros II Euro Reel after seeing my photos?
