Cortland Classic 444 Blue Intermediate


The Cortland 444 Blue Intermediate has been the preferred choice in slow-sinking fly lines of legions of fly fishermen almost since it was conceived.
Originally designed for fishing swimming nymphs and emergers in low water and over shallow, submerged weed beds, many ‘thinking’ stillwater lake anglers also use the almost neutral-density (1.06 SG)  444 Classic Blue Intermediate instead of a floating line when fishing emergers or dries on the surface during windy conditions.  The thin diameter line effortlessly slices through the wind and practically ‘hovers’ just below the surface, sinking ever-so-slowly to stay in direct contact with your flies.  Unlike high floating surface lines, the Classic Blue under the surface isn’t affected by wind-drift or drag and allows you to present and fish artificials much more naturally and for longer periods.
The super-smooth finish allows effortless distance casting when the fish are ‘out there..’ but it’s construction and taper profile still allows easy ‘mending’ in moving water to present realistic patterns correctly in rivers.
This Cortland Classic Ice Blue Intermediate -  is a great sub-surface line for most lake, stillwater and reservoir fishing for a wide range of species and conditions.
It is also a very firm favourite and often the first-choice line of Competition and Loch-Style Boat fishermen who need to locate near-surface fish quickly.

The 444 Classic Blue Intermediate Fly Line is available in AFTM Line Weights from:  #6 to #8 Wt.

Mastering a controlled, effortless cast determines your success in fly fishing. The time-tested formulation of the 444 Classic Fly Line series offers today' s fly fishers the same supple, glass smooth finish that made this line, the "Fly Line of the Millenium". The suppleness of the 444 Classic combined with special tapers allow you to keep tight loops and pinpoint casting accuracy.

One of our most popular intermediate lines. The 444 has a specific gravity of 1.06 and so is only slightly heavier than water. It sinks very slowly and remains straight for positive hook settings. Left untreated it will sink very slowly making it especially useful for fishing over shallow, submerged weed beds.

An excellent line for fishing nymphs and buzzers just subsurface.

Colour : Ice Blue

Sizes Available : WF6 - WF8
