FS Large Arbor Orvis Hydros SL 3 w/6 wt. Orvis Wonderline Fly Line


Active Member
Like new Hydros 3 Large Arbor Reel, Sealed drag that is compatible with saltwater or freshwater fly fishing. All original packaging, reel pouch, owner's manual, and key to reverse from left to right hand retrieve. Very small blemish on edge of reel frame, otherwise flawless condition. This reel has been collecting dust in my closet and only used maybe 6 times. Time to pass it on so it can be fished! $185 plus $8 shipping or local pickup in Kirkland, WA. PayPal ok. Retails new for $229. Sorry, no trades.

From the Orvis website: The Hydros® SL challenges everything you know about fly reels. A superlarge arbor means quick retrieval rates. A sealed carbon drag—the clutch bearing is fully sealed inside the drag mechanism—means this reel is ready for whatever conditions you choose to throw at it. And we made the drag stronger with zero start-up inertia and an asymmetric drag knob for tactile, no-look drag adjustments. A narrow spool means less line stacking, and we added an increased backing capacity. Combined with an ultrafast retrieval rate, this puts you in control of the fight. Imported.
