    GHOST TIP 9 BREAKDOWN

    When stealthy presentations are necessary, choose the Tropic Plus Ghost Tip.

    Our Tropic Plus Ghost Tip 9 features a 9-foot clear intermediate tip with a sink rate of 1.5-2 inches per second. The 7-foot front taper effortlessly turns over a variety of fly sizes without compromising subtle presentations when the fish are laid up in shallow water. The body of this line is 27’ long and equally excels at short / long range casts. The 7’ back taper paired with the extended body transfers more energy into your cast resulting in superior shootability.

    Built on a monofilament core, our Ghost Tip 9 features our signature tropic plus coating for withstanding the hottest temperatures while still remaining slick, supple and fast shooting.

    Ghost Tip 9 is finished in a stealthy clear and sand color that blends in with flats environments.

    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 Pro 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.
