TOTAL HEAD LENGHT: 30 FEET
HI-VIS FLIP BREAKDOWN
Designed by the legendary Flip Pallot, our HI-VIS Flip excels in stained / off color water where tracking your line is a must.
We built this line with an aggressive head featuring a short 22’ body that is designed for both short and long range casts. This short body paired with only a 4’ front taper transfers maximum energy into your cast turning over large air resistant flies, weighted fly patterns and long leaders. The 4’ back taper helps load this line quickly with minimal false casts and makes recasting easy when the fish are on the move.
Built on a monofilament core, this line features our signature tropic plus coating for withstanding the hottest temperatures while still remaining slick, supple and fast shooting. Finished in a hi-vis orange and white, this is the perfect line for fishing mangroves and other stained bodies of water.

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.
