Intermediate Breakdown

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

We built this line to feature a 27 ft. extended body that excels in both short and long range casts. The 7 ft. front taper will turn over a variety of fly sizes without compromising subtle presentations. The 7 ft. back taper paired with the extended body transfers more energy into your cast resulting in superior shootability.

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 smoke color for ultimate stealth on the flats or sandy bottoms.

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

Our Tropic Plus 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 Intermediate line was built to excel in both short and long range casting. The extended body and short rear taper allows for more energy to be transferred into your cast for quickly shooting your line. The average front taper turns over a variety of flies without compromising subtle presentations. This line has a sink rate of 1.5-2 IPS and is built in true line size so your rod never feels overlined when casting maximum distance.

This line is finished in a smoke color 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.

Cortland Saltwater Intermediate in Belize

Worked well with my 9wt. For a 3.5 ft. Barracuda. I would recommend it for deep flats rivers and lagoons. Casts great and is very stealthy.

Sub surface stealth

I have been using this line for speckled sea trout in the Texas surf. The line vanishes against the sand. True AFTMA 210 gr 8wt line that loads nice on a moderate action rod. Great line that stays slick in 90+ degree heat.
