Micron Fly Line Backing - Chartreuse

$11.95 USD Save

Cortland Micron is the standard by which all fly line backing has been judged for more than 50 years. World famous for its tight, round braid, smooth low-friction finish and stretch-resistant performance, Micron is manufactured from premium Dacron fibers. Unlike looser, flat braids, Micron comes with zero twist, is virtually tangle-free and knots perfectly every time. Ask any fly angler who sees their backing more than most, and they’ll tell you they use Micron — every time.

Use it on my fly reels, but more so on Cast Nets

For over 50 years I have made old school hand tied cast nets. I started out as a kid making cotton nets. Then nylon came along and I began using bonded nylon. An old school cast net builder I know began making Dacron Nets. Thought I would make a few and ordered various colors in 1000 yard spools. Works great, ties great and hopefully will hold up well, especially around oyster shells. Still experimenting with Cast Nets as a viable application for the Dacron Backing. It’s diameter and knotting ability are pluses. Since the cast nets can be made to catch Mullet and other species of fish, as well as bait mostly in Salt Water, durability under net fishing conditions is still unknown.

Micron

Micron has been on my reels during a lifetime of fly fishing. In fact one of my earliest fly reels was an English-made Cortland multiplier reel, in fact, I still bring it out to demonstrate a multiplier reel when giving my fly tackle presentations at my schools, workshops, and camps. Some of my Micron is doubtless, decades old, how often should I change it? I just purchased a supply.
