Cortland Streamer Series

The new Streamer Series from Cortland has an aggressive front taper to turn over large flies, and a short 26-foot body with a stepped, functional rear taper that gives you some ability to roll cast and mend when you are fishing in tight streams with a lot of brush and pocketwater. The lines are overweighted by a full AFFTA-standard line size (the 5-weight is actually a 6) so it makes your stiff streamer rod bend deeply with just one false cast, and launch quickly. A clear color change at the start of the 64-foot running line gives you a visual reference point so you know when it’s easiest to both pick up and shoot line. The Streamer Series comes in three versions: floating, with a 10-foot type 6 sink tip, and with a 15-foot type 6 sink tip. In rivers this covers 99% of the situations, whether you’re fishing the banks from a drift boat or plunge pools and boulder gardens in freestone streams. Use it anywhere you are sniping specific spots. The only time you wouldn’t use this line is if you are wading large, broad rivers and sweeping runs where you want to make long casts, mend, and control the fly through the entire swing. $80 | cortlandline.com
