TOTAL HEAD LENGHT: 30 FEET
Targeting Redfish on the fly requires capitalizing on quick opportunities and feeding windows.
We designed our Tropic Plus Redfish line with a short compact head featuring a 21’ body that is powerful and easy loading. A shorter 4’ front taper easily turns over large Redfish patterns as well as weighted patterns. The 5’ back taper helps load the line quickly with minimal false casting when fish are close and casts need to be as efficient as possible.
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 Seafoam Green and tan, this line is stealthy yet traceable in tropic environments.
The Tropic Plus Redfish is perfect for working shorelines and casting under mangroves.

Our Tropic Plus Redfish Line 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 Redfish line was built to be aggressive up front for turning over larger patterns, weighted flies and big topwater patterns. 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 half line size heavy to load faster action rods and give you maximum loading power in short ranges.
The seafoam and tan finish distinguishes taper change and easily identifies the prime loading point for casting. This color combination also provides stealth and traceability whether fishing on Tropic Flats or off-colored mangroves.

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.
