Cortland is a line company to the core, and has been for nearly 100 years. More to the point, they’re a fishing company, which means advancements and designs are geared toward catching more and bigger fish. For you this means better casting, less visibility (or more if you are using a high-vis line), controlled stretch, reliable sink rates and specialized tapers. And they don’t stop there. Every inch of every fly line is inspected by hand before it leaves the factory. Every batch of mono extruded is tested for strength. In addition to controlling manufacturing quality, Cortland is tireless in their pursuit of performance innovations. Over the decades, Cortland has introduced dozens of difference-making advances. Some are engineering-driven, others are science-driven. All of them are fishing-driven.
