Saltwater fishing tests the angler with long casts, stiff winds, withering heat and selective fish that swim faster, jump higher and fight longer than anything found in freshwater. Our saltwater lines meet each challenge with tapers designed to turn big flies into the wind, to present imitations with finesse and to stand up to the sun, the salt and every lip-ripping, rod-doubling, hoot-inducing run.

Liquid Crystal

Cortland’s tournament-winning Liquid Crystal™ floating fly lines represent a glimpse into the future of floating fly line technology. Made by extruding a proprietary blend of clear polyethylene and advanced co-polymers over a monofilament core, the Liquid Crystal is virtually invisible in the water. The hard PE+TM coating has a super-smooth finish with an exceptionally low coefficient of friction so it shoots faster and farther than any conventional PVC floating line ever made. The coating is permanently fused to the core so there is no line stretch — for unequalled strike detection and hook sets. Highly abrasion-resistant and durable, Liquid Crystal comes in two tapers, a variety of weights and two colors (clear or blue).
