Targeting Bass on the fly requires capitalizing on quick opportunities and delivering large fly patterns to the upper/middle water columns.
We built this line with an aggressive head featuring a short 22 ft. body that is designed for both short and long range casts. This short body paired with only a 4 ft. front taper transfers maximum energy into your cast turning over large air resistant flies, weighted fly patterns and long leaders. The 4 ft. back taper helps load this line quickly with minimal false casts and makes recasting easy when the fish are on the move.
Built on a monofilament core, this line features our signature Shooting Technology that keeps your line remaining slick, supple and fast shooting all day long. The orange and white color combination distinguishes taper change and is very traceable when fishing topwater or other methods for Bass. Built a full line size heavy for loading fast action rods.
Welded loops make rigging fast, easy and reliable. Cortland loops are strong, secure and durable.
ST coating delivers a reduced-friction performance with a glass-smooth finish and remains a key element in line slickness over its life span.

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.
