STRIPED BASS INTERMEDIATE BREAKDOWN

Targeting Striped Bass on the fly requires capitalizing on quick opportunities and feeding windows.

We designed our Cold Salt Striped Bass Intermediate line with a medium length head featuring a 22’ body that is powerful and easy loading. A 6’ front taper easily turns over a variety of fly patterns without compromising subtle presentations. The 4’ back taper helps load the line quickly with minimal false casting making casts efficient as possible.

Built on a braided nylon core, this line features our signature Cold Salt jacket material for staying supple and memory free in the coldest of conditions. Finished in Ice Blue, this line is stealthy yet traceable.

The Cold Salt Striped Bass Intermediate is perfect for cutting throught the surf, fishing turbid water and subtle presentations on the flats.

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.
