Hardy Reels & Cortland 444 Sylk Lines

We are proud to be agents for House of Hardy products. Although we mainly focus on reels that match well with cane rods, we can get any Hardy product for you. Just inquire! Since the introduction of their first reel in 1880, Hardy reels have long been a favorite of anglers worldwide. These reels are durable, functional and aesthetically pleasing on a fine cane rod. As an added bonus, Hardy reels have historically held a very high resale value and are collectibles in their own right, often passed down through generations as heirlooms. One factor in their timeless appeal is in their engineering: they are designed simply and elegantly and it is not uncommon to find a Hardy over 60 years old, still functioning perfectly!

Cortland 444 Sylk Fly Lines

Cortland 444 Sylk Flylines, J.D. Wagner, Agent

2004 saw the introduction of this fine product from Cortland: a synthetic line designed to feature some of the best attributes of genuine silk flylines, but with the convenience of a synthetic. The customer reviews so far have been outstanding, in fact one rodbuilder told me he was replacing all of his synthetic lines with the Cortland sylk. These lines are quite a bit smaller in diameter then a normal synthetic counterpart, and are therefor denser. ..just like the typical silk flyline. They also shoot and float very well, are supple, and possess a very slick coating.

Available in DT2- 8 and WF 2-7. $59.95 plus shipping.
