One of Cortland’s oldest fly line designs, the Classic 444 Peach has been around for over 50 years. Sure, fly fishing gear has changed since the 1960s but this is a line that has offered durability, light line performance, and a proven versatile taper for anglers who continue to fish moderate action rods. This is a line that’s great for traditional fishing techniques including dry flies at short ranges and Panfish on the lake. Be careful not to pair this line with an ultra-fast action rod.

FeaturesWelded Loop, High Floating Coating

 – Cortland has built a few different features into this line to keep it simple and functional on the water. The line is designed to float high in the water with a coating that also improves casting capabilities. A front loop allows anglers to easily attach leaders so you can focus on the fishing instead of the rigging. The line features a single-tone peach color scheme and a braided nylon multifilament core.



Classic Design, Trout, and Other Freshwater Species

 – Cortland put this line in the Classic Series for a reason. In fact, the 444 Classic Peach has been around for over 50 years. The line’s simple design is tried-and-true on the water. Featuring a versatile taper, this is a line that is light and fishes well with moderate action rods including fiberglass, bamboo, and others. While it is designed for trout, it can be used for a variety of other freshwater species.




 – This line is made to be used in cold and moderate climates including freshwater streams and rivers, lakes, and almost any climate. That being said, this line will turn limp in tropical climates and isn’t meant to be used in high heat.



Classic Taper w/ DT Option

 – This is a true-to-size line with an 8’ front taper, 20’ body, 4’ back taper, and 58’ of running line. The Classic 444 Peach is also available in a double taper line for all of you old-fashioned dry fly anglers out there. The WF taper features a simple freshwater-specific design that was originally built for older, more moderate fly rods in the 1960s. While this isn’t a fly line for modern fast-action high-performance graphite rods, it offers proven performance to anglers who prefer the classic feel of older rods.
