Cortland 444 Sinking Fly Line

Product Code

Cortland's most popular range of sinking lines. Sinking lines get the fly down to the deeper feeding locations.
Available in two sink rates

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.

With most species taking far more of their natural food below the surface than on the top, sinking lines get the fly down to the deeper feeding locations. Because feeding patterns, water depth and current vary, Cortland manufactures a wide range of sinking lines.

  • Cortlands incredible sinking speed 3 fly line will get your fly down to these deeper feeding areas consistently and efficiently in stillwaters and faster rivers.
  • The Cortland 444 Sinking Speed 6 fly line will take lures and wet flies down very rapidly enabling deep lying fish to be targetted effectively.
