Our Cold Salt Striped Bass Sink line features a 28 ft. type 8 sinking head with a short 3’ front taper for turning over the largest saltwater patterns.

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 black and ice blue, this line is stealthy yet traceable.

The Cold Salt Striped Bass Sink is perfect for throwing large flies from shore or from a boat.

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.
