NEW IN FLY LINES: Cortland introduces Competition Nymph
Retailers intent on upselling 9-11ft nymph rods in 2012 need look no further than the new Cortland Competition Nymph line. It is, says Cortland, specifically designed for 9-11ft nymph rods and, given Cortland‘s reputation for quality, no sensible retailer should miss the opportunity to recommend it to customers searching for extra productivity on the water.
Says Cortland: “Competition Nymph has been uniquely engineered to help the nymph specialist create ultra-precise presentations and achieve the highest degree of strike detection, sensitivity and accuracy. It is a perfect line for French, Spanish, Czech and high-stick nymphing styles where the fly line is held off the water.”
The ultra-thin, limp core and supple coating of Cortland Competition Nymph allow excellent ‘drape’ over the rod tip, which increases sensitivity. Fine tip diameters and an elongated front taper allow light rigs to cast with pinpoint accuracy and prevent the line from ‘bellying’ – dragging the flies out of the drift on longer casts.
The fine tip on the line prevents the need for extra-long monofilament leaders, adds Cortland, yet the complex taper provides enough energy to make accurate longer casts and turn over multiple fly rigs when conditions demand it.
So what should retailers be telling anglers? Cortland’s message is clear and precise: “Get the maximum performance out of your favourite 9-11ft nymph rod by matching it with the proper Competition Nymph line. It’s the surest way to increase your productivity on the water!”
Cortland has also introduced a new Indicator Mono designed specifically to work with Cortland’s Competition Nymph Line. For details of all new Cortland launches for 2012 click here.
