Show Notes with Brooks Robinson and Cortland Line

- Joe Goodspeed was noted as the guy who got Brooks into his job at Cortland.

- The Clear Liquid Crystal is a great line for Tarpon.

- Leon Chandler was Cortland's big lead back in the day marketing the company.

- The Trout Boss line from Cortland is great for dry fly fishing when it's windy.  The Ultra light line is also great for dry lines.

- We talk about the 444 line which has been around since since the beginning and is still one of their best selling line.

- We talk about the old crown and rimfly reels.  They offer the new Crown series reels now for trout along with the fair play.

- The liquid crystal tarpon line is the goto and the ghost tip is great for deeper fish.

- We note the 9 foot 6 weight rod and the Cortland line that lines up with the dry line.  The trout boss is a great all around dry line.

- The clear camo is one of my favorite lines for stillwater.  The ghost tip was also noted here.

- I noted the Jerry Darkes podcast and the switch rod conversation.  The Cortland compact switch is the perfect line for spey with the switch.
