Free Domestic Shipping On All Cortland 444 Classic Sylk Floating Fly Line!

The 444 Classic Sylk fly line is the first ever fully synthetic fly line to recreate the original appearance and unique performance of the finest natural silk lines from the past 100 years - without all the maintenance and high cost.

Skillfully designed for the avid bamboo and fiberglass angler, the 444 Classic Sylk fly line is butter-soft and is smaller in diameter than traditional synthetic floating lines, making it the line of choice for traditional action rod anglers, including those earlier rod designs that have smaller guides. With the traditionalist in mind, Cortland’s technicians have designed this line in a color that nearly matches the look of a traditional silk line coated with linseed oil and mucilin. Their suppleness makes them great cold weather lines with virtually any fly rod.

444 Classic Sylk Tapers

The taper of the 444 Classic Sylk is based on traditional silk line designs with long front tapers and longer level tips. Available in WF3F-WF7F and DT4F-DT6F.

Specifications of the line are in the table below.

About Me:
Avid Fisher
Sylk is a modern repro of an old silk line. It is small diameter for it's weight, shoots better and with a tighter loop than a contemporary line. Works great on all rods, but was intended I think for use on vintage bamboo rods with the smaller guides. It floats as well as any line but mends easier and is much less wind resistant and easier casting than a larger diameter.

Pros: Looks Realistic, Easy To Handle, Good For Variety Of Fish

Cons: none

Best Uses: Fresh Water
