Double Taper

  • Easy to cast
  • For short rods and tiny reels
  • Designed to turnover quickly
  • Double taper
The world's most popular fly lines--and with good reason! In the past, anglers resorted to chopping lines to fit small reels, but that was before the good folks at Cortland stepped up and developed this easy to cast 10 meter fly line for short rods and tiny reels. Designed to turnover quickly, this fully configured double tapered line is perfect for fishing small streams, and it leaves plenty of room for 12 or 20 pound backing.
Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 ten meter line This line is perfect for my style of creek fishing - I use a lot of roll casts under 30 feet. This line stretches out with very little memory and floats well. My only complaint with my 4 wt DT line is that the tip wanted to sink. I added knot sense and that appears to have solved the problem. Perhaps the tip wicked water. I also have this line in 3 and 5 weights for close in work. April 29, 2008

A: 
Due to the line weights, this line is really marginal for saltwater. Of the three line weights available, the 5 wt is the best suited.

If you're fishing for small fish close to shore on a calm day with small flies, you'll probably be okay. Any wind or large flies are going to be a problem.

Also, a rod matching these lines is going to be gutless if you tie into a medium or large fish and you run the risk of it breaking.

I would really recommend starting out with, at minimum a 7 or 8 weight line and rod for saltwater. Especially if that's all you're going to be fishing. A 9-10 wt would be better still.

Better to spend a bit more now for a more suitable equipment, than have to replace it later and end up buying twice.
