During the summer of 1915, Ray Smith an expert in braiding technology, designed and produced a unique selection of braided silk fishing lines that soon made Cortland Line Company one of the major players in the fishing line business of the early 1900’s. CortlandFly lines embody two materials: the core and the coating. All of Cortland fly lines have a core of braided nylon, braided monofilament or a single strand of monofilament. Cortland Line Company is the only fly line company that manufactures its own fly line cores. The core is coated with a PVC in which Cortland impart the tapered design. Within the PVC they add hollow glass microspheres (floating) or various density compensating additives (sinking). Variations in the number of additives used account for some of the differences in the characteristics in its range of lines, i.e. higher float or faster sink.
