WTB Cortland Peach 444 DT5F

Somewhere in a drawer one of you esteemed gentlemen has a Cortland 444 Peach DT5F on a reel and perhaps has only fished the front half.
I'd like to help that poor line out and let the other half get some sunshine.
Please let me know if you've got one of these lines you'd part with.
I have a Sharpe's Scottie 8' 5/6 that needs a line.
Jim

For what it's worth, Paul Arden (Sexyloops) says the cheap (less than $10) Chinese dts are fine as long as you treat them with line dressing because they are not as smooth as US-made lines. I purchased a 5wt from Willow and Cane and agree with Arden.

Thank you for that info.
I had not heard of them before you mentioned it and shall take a look.

I have this line. Unfortunately, it’s also attached to a Redington Drift reel, left on my Jeep rooftop about two years ago as I parted ways from the upper Grand River here in Ontario. It’s likely still on some back road between here and there...

Couldn’t find one again locally, so settled for something different. Great line it was. Good luck in finding one.

I hate to admit it but I had a similar event while in the Skeena last September. A stumble, a slip, and whoops, off went the speyrod, reel, line and almost me.
So my rod is somewhere on the bottom of the river waiting to be snagged by some bait fisherman.
Meantime a kind soul on the Classic Fly rood forum found one so I am good.
