Cortland Micron Backing - Sky Blue
Purchase your Cortland fly lines at Stillwater Fly shop and save with FREE shipping and pay NO sales tax!
333 Cortland Micron is the standard by which all fly line backing has been judged for over 50 years. Choose Cortland.
World-famous for its tight, round braid, smooth low-friction finish, and stretch-resistant performance, Micron is manufactured from premium Dacron fibers in our New York facility. Unlike looser, flat braids, Micron comes with zero twist, is virtually tangle-free and knots perfectly every time. Ask any fly angler who sees their backing more than most, and they'll tell you they use Micron — every time.
Available in 20-lb and 30-lb test, in traditional white, high-visibility yellow or orange — or (new for 2014) blue.
made in USA!
blue and orange are the cool colors- yellow and white thumbs down. of course doesn't have anything to do with performance which is always great.
Love these old style USA flyfishing companies that find a niche and guard it religiously!
