Hydros SL1 Fly Reel Unboxing! #flyfishing #orvis

By / January 10, 2020 / Fishing

Package arrived from Orvis. Ordered the Hydros SL1 Fly Reel that was on sale at a 60% discount! See video – https://youtu.be/rrtz25LxfQU for more details.

Planned to mount it on the Cabelas 2wt CGR Fly Rod. Looks awesome… have a WF 2wt fly line that is delivering next week. Hope to try it out soon after it arrives.

Cool looking reel, with a reel pouch to store it in and a tool to switch the retrieve from left to right and vice versa.

Do stay tuned, will post a follow-up video fishing with it and possibly catching a fish or two with it!

G’Day Glenn,
That’s a nice looking fly reel. Unboxing just about anything brings out the kid in all of us!
I have a 6’6″ 3/4wt that rod I often underline with .7mm floating shooting line. It casts very well and lands very lightly, even when I do a sloppy, bad cast. I was tempted to buy a short 1wt rod but this rig does the job extremely well.
Cheers,
Steve.

Hi Steve!
Thanks… really liking it on the CGR Fiberglass Rod. Have been thinking about trying it on a longer fly rod. One more excuse to buy another fishing pole…LOL!
Take care,
Glenn
