Seldom does anyone need to cast the entire line, but there are times when eeking out an extra foot or mending at the end of a long drift is the difference between fish on and fish gone. Our freshwater lines are engineered with mission-specific tapers and high-tech coatings for longer casts, better control and superior presentations. In other words, they’re designed to help you close the gap. And catch the fish.

444 Classic

The 444 became a classic by setting the industry standards for shooting distance, accuracy and control. Today, it remains a remarkable combination of performance and value. The series is available in a range of tapers, weights and lengths to suit virtually any species and water type. And it features proven technology and design that stand up to cast after cast, hour after hour, fish after fish.
