COMPACT INTERMEDIATE BREAKDOWN

WATER: Freshwater/Saltwater / LINE: Floating / TAPER: Weight Forward / LENGTH: 100ft / CORE: Monofilament

The Compact Intermediate was designed for ultimate stealth and versatility.

We designed this line with an overly aggressive, clear intermediate 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 monofilament core with our signature Shooting Technology to keep your line remaining slick, supple and fast shooting. The clear and light blue color combination distinguishes taper change and identifies loading point.

The Compact Intermediate is one of our most versatile lines for a variety of species and conditions. Aggresive taper to turn over any size fly featuring a stealthy clear head.

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 Intermediate fly line is built for both medium and warm water environments. This line will perform best in temperatures between 50 and 70+ degrees (F).

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

The taper design for our Compact Intermediate 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 clear and light blue color combination distinguishes taper change and proper loading point. The clear head paired with the light blue running line is extremely stealthy and blends in with a variety of water types.

My favorite line thus far

Ive always been a fan of Cortland lines, this one takes the cake though. Short head helps load the rod properly on midrange to short casts and still can launch some big bugs out past 50’ if needed.

Most other companies only make striper lines up to 10 WT which doesn’t load fast 10 Wt rods very well. This 11 WT line works great on those types of rods.

Intermediate lines

I can’t rate this line yet. I’m waiting for my Thomas and Thomas rod to be built. The rod is made for casting intermediate and sinking lines.
