Product Code
Cortland 444 Classic Floating Fly Line 2 4.5 5 1

One of the most popular high quality floating lines for river and small-stillwater.

Colours Available: Olive & Peach

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 Millennium". The suppleness of the 444 Classic combined with special tapers allow you to keep tight loops and pinpoint casting accuracy.

The 444 is a supple line with good buoyancy and a glass smooth surface. This line has for years been one of the most popular high quality floating lines in the world.

The glass-like finish on these fly lines is super smooth and self lubricating for extra distance while the special suppleness helps accuracy and gives the most delicate presentation.

The Clear Creek model is a soft olive colour which avoids line flash when casting. It has an extra long, extra supple front taper which guarantees it won't splash. The line of choice for spring creek anglers.

Great Value for money
4 Mar 2020
The Cortland 444 Classic Floating Fly Line is a great fly line for beginners, but as for an advanced angler who fishes everyday like I do it is great out of the box and very evenly weighted and casts well fishes well with no kinks for the first thirty outings and then starts to coil up whilst your trying to fish. If you`re a angler who fishes everyday, I highly recommend the Rio Gold intouch fly line. If you`re an angler who fishes once a week, I think you will enjoy using this line and it will last you a good long while! I do recommend this line for beginners, Its cheap, its easy loading, Its excellent value for money and comes with a welded loop on the front.
