Cleaning your fly line is very important especially when fishing saltwater. Simply pull line off your reel into a clean bucket or tub of freshwater. Put roughly 1oz or more of Cortland’s Line Cleaner solution onto a clean rag or towel. Firmly squeeze the towel with Pro Line Cleaner around the line and slowly pull line through the towel. You should be able to see dirt or discolored streaks on the towel when finished.

Made for a Bamboo Fly Rod.

I love the 444 Silk DT fly line. A friend recommended your line for my bamboo rod I had just built. He was not wrong. It's unbelievable how smooth the line casts.

Just what I was hoping for!

I fish several bamboo rods and the Sylk lines fish extremely well. I purchased two a 5 and a 6 weight double taper and they are a wonderful complement to my bamboo rods. They cast well, smooth and silky. They are a delight! I anticipate they will cast well with my glass and graphite rods as well.

Smooth as silk

In the air, on the water, it duplicates silk - the preferred line for use on a fine cane rod - without the very high cost, risk of rot, and continual maintenance with non-silicone mucilin and need to dry after every use. Give me Sylk over silk. Thank you Cortland.

Perfect weight line!

This DT4 Sylk line matches very nicely with my split cane rod and gives me a very light casting presentation.

Lifetime Cortland 444 user

Worked on a #5 8' bamboo rod just like the old silk lines do,

cut lighter and easier to care for. Also casts fine on a #5 graphite

rod; easier to mend line with a double taper than a weight forward line.

Texture and color are cool.

Sylk lines

I fish primarily bamboo and have found the thinner diameter of the Sylk line just the ticket for the older rods with smaller stripping guide. They preform as expected and reliably float. My preferred line for bamboo rods !
