A Fly Line That Floats to the Top

Bob Kloskowski

After a disappointing ten weeks of life from the fly line of another manufacturer, I was searching for for a floating fly line that would take me through the entire season without cracks and without the usual sinking tips. I decided to try another brand. A brand that for some reason I had ignored for almost a decade. I decided to try the Cortland 444. I removed it from it's package and put it onto my Hardy LRH. I liked the Cortland idea of the line weight and type printed on the line making it easy for you to identify what you are using or need to use. Standing knee deep in the Firehole River in Yellowstone National Park, I tied a #20 Baetis to my tippet and worked my new Cortland Line through the guides. It's performance was impressive. It shot through the guides effortlessly and floated nice and high. Before long I was fast to a beautiful Firehole River brown trout. I was pretty satisfied with my Cortland 444 on it's first day streamside but it's true test would come in several weeks.
After about six months and almost a hundred days of fishing the Cortland 444 is still on my reel. With an occasional cleaning it continues to float high and dry. Minor cracking is just starting to appear but it has given me much more than the ten weeks of life that I received from my old fly line.
I would recommend this line to my friends.
