COMPACT FLOAT BREAKDOWN

WATER: Freshwater / LINE: Floating / TAPER: Weight Forward / LENGTH: 100ft / CORE: Braided Nylon Multifilament

The Compact Float was designed for throwing large flies for a variety of species in variable conditions.

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

This dual colored line features a braided nylon core with our signature Shooting Technology to keep your line remaining slick, supple and fast shooting. The green and yellow color combination distinguishes taper change and identifies loading point.

The Compact Float is one of our most versatile lines for a variety of species. Never lose shots at fish again due to high winds or varying conditions.

SPECIES: Bass, Salmon, Steelhead, Trout, Pike, Musky, Striped Bass, False Albacore, Bluefish

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What Temperature Range will this line perform best in?

Our Compact Float fly line is built for both cold and warm water environments and will perform best in temperatures between 30 and 70 degrees (F).

WHY IS THIS TAPER IDEAL FOR LARGE FLIES AND HEAVY WINDS?

The taper design for our Compact Float was built overly aggressive to cast large flies, punch through wind and 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.

Why is this line 2 colors?

The green and yellow color combination distinguishes taper change and proper loading point. These colors are stealthy yet traceable in freshwater environments.

Stands true to the name.

I am always amazed at how well new fly line is and rolls off. Cortland continues to make the standards higher then other “x”brands.
