    TROPIC COMPACT BREAKDOWN

    There’s one thing that gets on fly anglers’ nerves more than anything… Wind. The Tropic Compact was designed for throwing large flies for a variety of species in the toughest tropic conditions.

    We designed this line with an overly aggressive head featuring a short 20’ body that packs a serious punch. The compact body paired with a short 3’ front taper easily turns over large air resistant flies in heavy wind. The short 3’ back taper helps load this line quickly with minimal false casting. Just load and shoot.

    This dual colored line features a braided nylon core with our signature Tropic Plus coating for withstanding the blistering heat while still remaining slick, supple and fast shooting. The yellow and aqua blue color combination distinguishes taper change and is traceable yet stealthy to any species you may be targeting.

    The Tropic Compact is one of our most versatile lines for tropic species. Never lose shots at fish again due to large flies, high winds or gnarly conditions.





    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Our Tropic Compact is built for tropic environments and will perform best in temperatures above 70 degrees (F). Our Tropic PVC coating is designed to remain hard, slick and supple in the hottest conditions.


    The taper design for our Tropic Compact was built overly aggresive to cast large flies, punch through wind and ultimately deliver flies where they need to go despite the conditions. The short body and short rear taper allows for minimal false casts while achieving maximum distance. The short front taper will turn over any large fly or weighted pattern with ease. This line is built overweighted for quick loading and fast shooting.


    The pale yellow and aqua blue finish distinguishes taper change, identifies loading point and blends in with tropic environments. This line remains stealthy yet traceable out in the flats, surf, or jungle.

    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.
