Cortland Classic 444 Floating
Floating Great line for dries and pulling wests with its special taper design and tight loops makes this line a great short to middle distance line.
It’s my go to line when fishing dries and pulling wets n Loch Leven and the Lake of Menteith.­­­

Cortland Intermediate
Cortland Blue. Possibly the best all-round intermediate there is. Great pulling line for wets on Loch Leven and on the lochs of Orkney.
Alan Smith Scottish international swears by this line for pulling wets and fishing buzzers fishing on Loch Leven.Cortland Blue
Cortland Intermediate Camo Line.
Another line for the box, great line for small still waters and for the Lochs.
Again using the 444 special taper makes this line cast like a dream and pin point accuracy with minimum effort and just flies through the rod rings. Great pulling line for lures and wets another great line for Loch Leven and the Lake of Menteith.Cortland Camo Line.

Cortland Full Sinking Type 3
These lines are a must for the loch style fisherman who want to get his flies and lures down deep to the fish, both lines sink at( Type 3 at 3-4 inches a second) and Type six 6-7 inches a second). Both are great lines for fishing with boobies and pulling blobs on the big English reservoirs like Grafham and Rutland, and of course not forgetting Loch Leven and the Orkney lochs like Harray and Swanney.
All these lines are a must for the fly fisherman who wants to cover all the bases and great for the newcomer to the sport.Cortland Type 3
