Finesse Trout II Breakdown

Dry fly fishing complex currents requires constant adjustments to your drifts. The revolutionary, high floating Finesse Trout II allows you to mend and control your drift at distance, presenting dry flies naturally.

Our Finesse Trout II features a long 28 ft. body that lets you control your drift at distance and easily feed line down to your target. The 10 ft. front taper features an ultrathin tip that delicately presents your fly to the finickiest trout. The 5 ft. rear taper paired with the extended body gives this line superior shooting ability.

This line is built a half line size heavy to load modern action rods. The Heron and Light Blue color combination distinguishes taper change while remaining stealthy yet traceable on the river.

One of our finest dry fly lines, this line will change your dry fly game and get you those natural drifts needed to fool the smartest trout.

Finesse Trout II

Learn more details about the Finesse Trout II fly line.

Our Finesse Trout II is built for cold water environments and will perform best in temperatures between 30 and 70 degrees (F).

The taper design for our Finesse Trout II was built with an extended body for adjusting your drift and mending at distance. The long front taper will turn over a variety of dry flies naturally. This line is built overweighted with a short rear taper for superior shooting ability.

The Heron and Light Blue finish distinguishes taper change, identifies loading point and blends in with freshwater environments. This line remains stealthy yet traceable out on the spring creek, river or lake.

Cleaning your fly line is very important especially when fishing saltwater. Simply pull line off your reel into a clean bucket or tub of freshwater. Put roughly 1oz or more of Cortland’s Line Cleaner solution onto a clean rag or towel. Firmly squeeze the towel with Pro Line Cleaner around the line and slowly pull line through the towel. You should be able to see dirt or discolored streaks on the towel when finished.

My ultra-light dry flies set up

Bought it for small stream/river to use on my TFO signatures II 2w 6'. With a 7.5 feet custom leader I must say I'm impressed. Great accuracy and paired with the good leader, you can drop your dries with ease.

Light presentation line

The finesse trout II is a great line for soft, long distance presentation w/ light flies. Runs fast through the guides and mends effortlessly, even several rod lengths away

I got off to a slow start with the line and rod, but yesterday went better.

I found my way to this line by purchasing a 2 wt 8' 6" medium-fast rod suggesting a 93 gr 2 wt line. This line is 90 gr. Yesterday was my 3rd time out with the rod and line. I like the combination. If I cast gently the line floats off the rod to its intended target. It's fun, especially on an overcast day with no one else around. It mends easily. I waded along a rock ridge to a spot 20' across from a beaver lodge, drifting a soft hackle below it to a few fish that broke the surface occasionally. I got a bump from a large fish that left a swirl. Minutes later I hooked and netted a 9" brown. I made another cast, and fed out line (maybe 60') to help reach the area of a larger fish. I stripped it in, and with maybe 20' remaining, I raised the tip to find a larger fish on. It bent the rod a bit, but I netted and released the 16" brown. Then the river shut off. I talked with four others who asked, "Have you even seen a fish or bug today?" I admitted to these two browns. I attribute my success to this line, and its smooth working with my the rod. It's pretty sweet.

Good Presentations

This line is great for short, quiet presentations. I use it on a fast, 9' rod and, if needed, can make a long smooth cast. Makes switching to swinging streams from nymphing with no sacrifice of distance and accuracy.

Delicate Presentation

Spoke to a representative on the phone and they recommended this line. I put it on my 5wt and it works beautifully.
