Full Sinking Type 3 Breakdown

The Classic Series Full Sinking Type 3 was designed for fishing streamers and stillwater patterns in the middle water column. This line features a type 3 sink rate of 3-4 inches per second and is constructed with a density compensated profile for both lake and river applications. A slow retrieve is ideal for deeper presentations, while weightless fly patterns can be used with fast retrieves in the upper water column. The most versatile sink rate for stillwater and river applications. 

Type 3 Level Sink : 3-4 IPS Sink Rate: Stillwater & Rivers : Front Welded Loop


Single Welded Loop

A front welded loop makes rigging, fast, easy, and reliable. Cortland loops are strong, secure, and durable.

Cold Temperature

Ideal use in 30-50 degree (F) temperatures.

Warm Temperature

Ideal use in 50 - 70 degree (F) temperatures.


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.
