Our Compact Switch fly line is built for both cold and warm water environments and will perform best in temperatures between 30 and 70 degrees (F).

The taper design for our Compact Switch was built overly aggressive as a Skagit style line, that punches through wind and deliver flies where they need to go. The short body and short rear taper allows for quick loading in tight quarters while achieving maximum distance. The short front taper will turn over any large fly or weighted pattern with ease.

The Chartreuse and Ivory color combination distinguishes taper change and proper loading point.

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.

compact switch

Being a relatively newbie to spey casting. I like the thickness of the running line. I have only used it once, but with 40 mph winds, I will have to give a better chance this week.

Cortland Compact Switch

Great line for my switch rod. 👏 Casts awesome for distance when needed, and tough and durable for all the Great Lakes fish! I recommend it to all my friends.
