Pike Musky Intermediate Breakdown

Our Pike Musky Intermediate was designed for ultimate versatility.

We designed this line with an overly aggressive head featuring a short 20 ft. body that packs a serious punch. The compact body paired with a short 3 ft. front taper easily turns over large air resistant flies. The short 3 ft. back taper helps load this line quickly with minimal false casting. This line is built overweighted to load fast, powerful rods.

This dual colored line features our low stretch braided nylon core for consistent, powerful hook sets. Our signature Shooting Technology keeps your line remaining slick, supple and fast shooting. The olive and green color combination distinguishes taper change and is traceable yet stealthy in Esox environments.

Our Pike Musky fly line is built to perform in both cold and warm water environments. This line will perform best in temperatures between 30 and 70 degrees (F).

The taper design for our Pike Musky Lines were built overly aggressive to cast large flies and punch through wind. The short body and short rear taper allows for minimal false casts while achieving maximum distance. The short front taper will turn over any large fly or weighted pattern with ease. This line is built overweighted for quick loading and fast shooting.

The olive and green color combination distinguishes taper change and proper loading point. These colors are stealthy yet traceable in freshwater environments.

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.
