Default Cortland-Diamondback Petition

Dear Cortland Line Company,

Many fly fishermen recall with chagrin the passion we had for Vermont-made Diamondback fly rods. Cortland had deep respect for them as well, enough to purchase the company. We understand the economic tribulations that befell not only Cortland but our great Nation as well that included the virtual demise of Diamondback rods as they had been. They were more than a brand, they were a philosophy of rod making that yielded some of the more delicate and handsome rods like the Classic and Western series up to among the toughest and most powerful Saltwater and Stu Apte series of rods. We miss them profoundly.

With the advent of inspiring new ownership at venerable Cortland, we active participants in the North American Fly Fishing Forum, humbly request that you give serious consideration to re-inventing Diamondback in a brand new, NY based, advanced technology, rod building facility. A premium US made rod employing sate of the art design, materials and NY craftspersons would be a grand testimony to the revitalization and elevation of the great Cortland brand by reintroducing the recognized but lamented brand, Diamondback.

Respectfully, The Membership of the North American Fly Fishing Forum

Please post your thoughts and when we get enough pages we can invite Cortland to visit our petition thread. Thank you, S&S
