For nearly a hundred years Cortland Line Company has broken new ground in sportfishing line development. In 1953 Cortland introduced the 333 Fly Line, the first low-maintenance floating line and the first bonded synthetic surface coating ever used in line manufacturing. Through the second half of the century, Cortland's 444 and 444SL pushed the boundaries of fly line technology even further, while perfecting tapers and creating the most durable, fishable lines available. Until now.
Cortland new 555 SERIES Fly Lines represent the next step in fly line development. The world of the 21st century fly fisher is expanding at lightning speed. The cutting edge angler demands performance and value. The new 555 SERIES has been designed to be one step ahead of today's fly fisher combining groundbreaking new Barrier Construction Technology with application-specific tapers and proprietary coatings that tune in each line for the job at hand.
The 555 SERIES does not rely on a single coating, body material, core or taper. Each line is engineered to address the fly fisher's specific needs. The vital fly line design elements have been structured to meet specific demands, making each 555 SERIES Fly Line unique.
We stock the Floating 555 line in both weight forward and double tapers, the Clear 555 in WF4F-6F weights and the new 55 Floating Green Ghost Tip line.
Floating Green Ghost Tip - In a word, the ANSWER to what serious fly fishers have been asking for since Cortland first introduced synthetic fly lines. The 555 Floating Green Ghost Tip combines the visibility of a mica-green colored line with a crystal clear floating tip section. The perfect line for clear water conditions while on or near the surface. This 555 is super high floating, lighting fast and is designed to last a light-year. Available in WF4-6F weights. This line is 90 feet in length.
Floating Line - The workhorse of the 555 SERIES, the floating lines feature a groundbreaking chambered mono core design, super-durable body, slick multi-agent coating and long-distance taper. The double tapers are available in Gold and in weights 4 through 8. The weight forwards are available in either Gold or Sage and in weights 4 through 8. This line is 105 feet in length.
Clear Floater - Crystal-clear, super-supple thermo-set plastic body and proprietary multi-lumen core give this line a Specific Gravity that is off the chart! It's the highest floating line in existence with a castability that has to be tried to be believed. The clear line is a weight forward taper and is available in weights 4, 5 and 6. This line is 90 feet in length.
