Experienced saltwater fly fishermen know how incredibly spooky Tarpon, Trevally & Co can be. Countless fish were not caught because the fly line had scared off a conspecific, who was unnoticed between the fly fisherman and the thrown fish. Often the fish are already being spooked when the line is still in the air. CORTLAND offers the solution with the floating, absolutely transparent Liquid Crystal Fly Cords. The cords consist of a clear coating of a mixture of polyethylene and special co-polymers and are directly welded to a transparent monofilament nylon core. This line is crystal clear and completely transparent. Its surface is so smooth that it slides much better through the rod rings, reaches much higher speeds and throws further than any saltwater line with a conventional PVC coating. And it can be silently and with minimal disturbance of the water surface from the water stand out, which allows correction without spooking the fish.
The coating is so firmly attached to the soul that the line has little stretch. The finest bites are thus noticeable and the first loss arrives at the fish. How important a fly line with as little stretch as possible knows anyone who has ever tried to put the hook in the bone-hard mouth of a tarpon. The durability and insensitivity to abrasion of the Cortland Liquid Crystal Fly Cords is also exemplary.
The Liquid Crystal Tarpon Taper in line classes 10 to 12 is designed for fly fishing on tarpon, barracuda, big jack and trevallies. The main weight of the 12.7 meter long belly is in the front 3.3 meters and ensures that strong leaders and big flies are transported with enormous power. The 9.4 meter rejuvenation of the backtaper stabilizes the trajectory and line loop in the air. Therefore, despite their heavy weight, these lines form very tight and controlled loops, which stretch out and gently lay on the water without unwanted turning over. Line lengths of up to about 14 meters can be lifted off the water with a backswing.
For the casting distances typically required in this fishery between 10 and just over 20 meters, the practiced caster does not need more than two empty rolls. The Liquid Crystal Fly Lines are equipped with extra strong welded loops at the top and at the end for quick and easy connection with the leader and the backing.
