Cortland Brook Fly Rods

$189.95

Sometimes you just need to get away. Away from the big name rivers with their full parking lots and hoards of anglers. Away from crowds, away from hype, away from pretension. We bet you know a little secret creek somewhere off the beaten path. Maybe your Dad or Granddad first took you there. Maybe you discovered it yourself. But it's a place you can be alone, just you and the trout. Or perhaps your passion is stalking the most technically demanding trout you can find. Spring creeks, tail waters, summer conditions and educated trout put special demands on the angler and his equipment.

Cortland knows those secret trout streams, and the challenge of selective trout too. So they created the Brook Series fly rods. These are rods designed from the grip up to meet the special demands of smaller waters where accuracy and finesse are more important than sheer power. Where fishing tiny flies and light tippets to wild and wary trout is the name of the game. Light, responsive, a joy to behold, these are rods you will be proud to own and fish. Carefully tuned actions, nickel silver fittings, slim specie cork grips and a special rod/reel carrier make these rods an unprecedented value. Whether your idea of solitude is chasing brookies in a mountain stream or casting to wily spring creek browns, these are the rods for you!

Brook 663 - A small stream. Pocket water. Overhanging branches reaching for your fly. A tight loop cast drops the little parachute against the bank and a wild brookie eats it like his last meal. Here's the rod for those secret canopied creeks and guerrilla tactics!

Brook 703 - Tricos! For some it's a hatch to be ignored. For others, it's the highlight of the fishing season. If you haven't stalked a sipping brown on a Summer morning you've missed one of the greatest and most rewarding challenges in trout fishing. The 703 is the perfect Trico rod. Delicate, accurate, easy loading, short enough to maneuver in tight spots, but long enough to control line. Oh, and it's a great rod for fishing terrestrials and midges too!

Brook 804 - Big enough for medium size rivers, small enough for that favorite brook, the 804 is a lightweight performer. Able to throw a wide range of fly sizes, cast short or long, protect delicate tippets and drop your fly on a dime. Midges, dries, small nymphs, terrestrials, spring-time on a mountain brook or summer low water on larger streams. And farm pond blue gills are a hoot on this stick! If you have to choose one light line fly rod you can't go wrong with this classic configuration!

Brook 864 - The dry fly specialist's favorite. Plenty of length for distance and line control, short enough for maximum accuracy, and with enough delicacy to protect fine tippets, this rod excels on any size trout stream. The 864 is the experts' choice for pin-point accuracy on technical trout rivers and spring creeks everywhere. Floating lines, long leaders, small dries and nymphs are this rod's forte. Wherever the trout are rising, the 864 is right at home.

Brook 865 - Perhaps the most versatile trout rod size, the 865 is the go to choice of trout anglers everywhere. Able to cast the entire range of fly sizes and types, this rod can reach out when needed yet is still delicate enough to fish light leaders and tiny dries. Whether the menu is bead heads, dries or even smaller 'buggers and streamers, the 865 can handle the job. Accuracy, control, adaptability, light weight, power and finesse, this rod has it all. The all round trout rod. Period.

About Me:

I was looking all over for reviews of this rod before I purchased and found very few. I heard some good things about Cortland rods from other fishermen, but very little about the brook rod. After ordering an 865, I'm so impressed I'm thinking about ordering a 3wt. I don't need a 3wt, but this quality at this price....the perfect design. Stiff enough to fight a good one, and flexible enough to cast with little trouble. All fly rods should follow this recipe. Beautiful.

Pros: Lightweight, Easy To Transport, Sensitive, Accurate Casting

Cons: none

Best Uses: none
