Liquid Crystal fly lines come in two versions, Clear and Sky Blue. We elected to go with the more popular Sky blue version. You don?t always need a completely invisible line, and some anglers (and their guides) prefer a line that?s easy to see. Visibility helps with loop control when casting and makes it easier to locate your fly when it?s underwater. The new Sky Blue Liquid Crystal? line fades from stronger blue color in the center to a light blue tint on the outer edges, making the line easy to see from above, while providing a subtle, blurry profile when viewed by a fish from below the surface. We believe the Sky Blue Liquid Crystal is the perfect compromise, offering a line that?s nearly invisible to the fish but easily seen by anglers and their guides.
LIQUID CRYSTAL? FLY FISHING LINES incorporate Cortland's proprietary PE+ Tropical coating. Liquid Crystal? lines are extruded with a blend of polyethylene compounds (PE+) over a monofilament core resulting in the toughest, slickest-shooting floating fly lines that have ever flown over the flats. The exceptionally hard, glass-smooth finish of the PE+ coating defies friction in even the most torrid heat, and the memory-free formulation resists tangling on the deck ? or in the rod-guides. The core and PE+ are permanently fused to prevent delaminating.
