    HEAVY SINK BREAKDOWN

    The right choice for targetting large game fish down deep.

    Our Tropic Plus Heavy Sink features a 30 ft. type 9 sinking head with a short 2’ front taper for turning over all large ocean patterns. The short 3’ back taper helps load this line quickly and makes it extremely shootable. Intermediate running line removes any hinges in the line and gives you a smooth transition into the depths.

    Built on a 50 lb. braid core for ultimate stopping power and durability, the heavy sink features our signature tropic plus coating for withstanding the hottest temperatures while still remaining slick, supple and fast shooting. This line is finished in a black and smoke color.

    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.
