Cortland Line Company Specialized MKII Series Competition Rods Elevate Your Game

Cortland, NY – Competition anglers are pushing the fly fishing limits with innovative approaches to river and stillwater fishing. The specialized techniques that are applied to these environments require rods designed to meet specific demands. The Cortland MKII series Nymph and Lake rods exceed expectations and perform exceptionally well. These rods are durable, light, balanced and constructed with high-end components. Not only do they perform, the MKII rods stand up against the abuse applied by aggressive competition fishing styles.

The MKII nymph series rods are ideal for tight-line nymph anglers. The ultra-sensitive tip increases strike detection while the fighting butt delivers power and leverage to land fish quickly. Perfectly balanced in 2 and 3 weight models, they combine with Cortland’s competition lines to create a deadly addition to your arsenal.

The MKII lake rods also combine well with Cortland’s competition lake lines but rather than increasing sensitivity, they improve distance casting and depth control. The 10-foot 6, 7 and 8 weight rods are built to load and layout long casts in variable conditions. The ultra-premium Portuguese cork grip is comfortable and helps prevent casting fatigue. The fighting butt puts leverage on stillwater fish and the unpainted finish is sleek and attractive. Do not hesitate to use aggressive tapers and a variety of floating and sinking lines with these versatile stillwater rods.

Competition style fly fishing is gaining popularity and the techniques easily transfer to non-competitive anglers. Increase your catch rates and ability to read and approach rivers and lakes with competition rods and techniques.
