Striped Bass Intermediate Breakdown

Targeting Striped Bass on the fly requires capitalizing on quick opportunities and feeding windows.

We designed our Cold Salt Striped Bass Intermediate line with a medium length head featuring a 22 ft. body that is powerful and easy loading. A 6 ft. front taper easily turns over a variety of fly patterns without compromising subtle presentations. The 4 ft. back taper helps load the line quickly with minimal false casting making casts efficient as possible.

Built on a braided nylon core, this line features our signature Cold Salt jacket material for staying supple and memory free in the coldest of conditions. Finished in Ice Blue, this line is stealthy yet traceable.

The Cold Salt Striped Bass Intermediate is perfect for cutting through the surf, fishing turbid water and subtle presentations on the flats.

Our Cold Salt Striped Bass Intermediate Line is built for cooler environments and will perform best in temperatures between 30 - 70 degrees (F). Our Cold Salt PVC coating is designed to remain extremely supple and memory free in the coldest saltwater conditions.

The taper design for our Striped Bass Intermediate line was built to be aggressive up front for turning over larger patterns and weighted flies. The short front taper paired with the short body effortlessly turns over these variety of patterns with minimal false casts. The short rear taper helps excel in quick shooting and minimal false casts, hitting your target in a timely fashion. This line is built a line and a half size heavy to load faster action rods and give you maximum loading power in a shorter period of time.

The Ice Blue finish provides stealth and traceability whether fishing from shore or casting off a boat.

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.

Great Saltwater Line for the NE

Bomb a few cast and reach fish with ease! The sink rate of this line makes it easy to cast, lift off the water, and deliver the fly back quickly and accurately!
