Clear Intermediate Breakdown

Our Tropic Plus Clear Intermediate is the perfect choice for the angler looking to cover the middle water column in deeper channels, heavy currents, flats or the surf.

We built this line to feature a 41 ft. extended head that excels in both short and long range casts. The 3 ft. front taper will turn over a variety of fly sizes and weighted flies. The 31 ft. back taper excels is ideal for carrying line in the air and accurate presentations.

This line features a monofilament core and our signature tropic plus coating for withstanding the hottest temperatures while still remaining slick, supple and fast shooting. The thinner overall diameter excels at casting through windy conditions. This line is finished in a clear color for ultimate stealth on the flats or surf.

Whether you are targeting Bonefish, Permit, Tarpon, Snook or Redfish on the Flats, fishing turbid water or casting from the beach our Tropic Plus Clear Intermediate has you covered.

FAQ

Our Tropic Plus Clear Intermediate 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 Clear Intermediate line was built to excel in both short and long range casting. This line has a sink rate of 1.5-2 IPS and is built oversized to load fast action rods when making short casts or long casts.

This line is finished in clear for ultimate stealth on the flats or sandy bottoms.

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.
