Cortland sold, and perhaps still does offer, this odd-looking spey line with a very long intermediate tip (blue), ahead of a red rear belly and/or running line. I've never seen one of these lines in use, or heard it mentioned in these threads. Does anyone know what the rationale for this line was/is? Has anyone actually fished with one?:confused:

Cortland f/i line

I was given a couple of those lines a long time ago. I think they were designed for the European Atlantic salmon market. They were to keep the fly from skating on the surface, which is thought by many to be less effective than fishing the fly just below the surface. I didn't use mine much because I often like to have the fly skate with a riffle hitch and don't want to change lines to do it. The long intermediate section is good for cutting into tips to be used to loop to a floater.
