Cortland 444 Classic Sylk Floating Fly Line

Description

Cortland 444 Classic Sylk Floating 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. This makes 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.

The taper of the 444 Classic Sylk is based on traditional silk line designs with long front tapers and longer level tips.

Cortland 444 Classic Sylk Floating Fly Line is made in the U.S.A.

 1st of several Cortland Sylk Fly Lines !
Pros: Line glides smoothly through guides
Best Uses: I'm very pleased with the way it performs and loads well on bamboo rods
Comments: Very realistic appearance however, less experienced anglers may misinterpret the coloration pattern as an old, aged, and cracking fly line sheath
 Great line, great service
Comments: FishUSA can always be relied upon to provide good equipment at the best price. I use these lines a lot, and buy from Fish USA whenever possible.

 Superior line
Pros: Looks Realistic, Easy To Handle, Good For Variety Of Fish
Best Uses: Fresh Water
Comments: 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.
