Saltwater fish, whether in the mangroves or way off shore, are bigger, faster and stronger than freshwater species, which means they test line in ways those species don’t. Cortland monofilament line and our fluoro, braid and steel leader materials are all high-quality, high-tensile and highly abrasion-resistant. They stand up to vicious takes, rocket-fast runs, acrobatic leaps, handling at the boat and everything in between.


Leaders aren’t required for every kind of sport fishing, but when you're after spooky fish or toothy ones, it can really improve hookups and landings. Ours comes in fluoro, braid and stainless steel, and in a variety of strengths to suit saltwater species and conditions.
