STRIPED BASS FLOAT BREAKDOWN
Targeting Striped Bass on the fly requires capitalizing on quick opportunities and feeding windows.
We designed our Cold Salt Striped Bass Float line with a short compact head featuring a 21’ body that is powerful and easy loading. A shorter 4’ front taper easily turns over large striper patterns as well as weighted patterns. The 5’ back taper helps load the line quickly with minimal false casting when fish are close and casts need to be as efficient as possible.
Built on a braided nylon core, this line features our signature Cold Salt coating for staying supple and memory free in the coldest of conditions. Finished in Aqua Green and light Blue, this line is stealthy yet traceable.
The Cold Salt Striped Bass Float is perfect for capitalizing on quick shots and blitzing fish.

The taper design for our Striped Bass line was built to be aggressive up front for turning over larger patterns, weighted flies and big topwater patterns. The short front taper paired with the short body effortlessly turns over these variety of patterns with minimal false casts. The short rear taper helps excel in quick shooting and minimal false casts, hitting your target in a timely fashion. This line is built a line and a half size heavy to load faster action rods and give you maximum loading power in a shorter period of time.

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 Pro 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.
