Simon Jefferies is one of the most respected names in the UK fishing world and is joining Cortland as Director of International Sales.
For over 100 years, Cortland Line has been designing and manufacturing the world’s most innovative fly lines and braided fishing lines. With passion and experience, Cortland remains focused on one thing: fishing. Fishing has been, and always will be, what drives Cortland to develop the most advanced lines offered today. Cortland lines are made in the USA with the latest in line technology – many technologies that Cortland itself pioneered for the industry.
As Sales Director for Turrall, Simon was instrumental in developing sales in over 30 countries, creating a genuine ’International Brand.’ He was also responsible for the company’s recent move to new premises in Okehampton, Devon, where they were able to fully service the trade with a modern office and distribution links.
New range by Cortland
Simon joins Cortland at a particularly important time as they introduce an exciting new range of fly lines, rods, reels and tippet material. As ever, the Cortland quality factor is the cornerstone of the brand’s appeal, as well as having a unique special place in the hearts of committed anglers.
Simon stated: “The entire tackle trade is changing, particularly with the advent of internet marketing. The excitement of working with a premium international brand such as Cortland was one that I simply could not resist, and I am looking forward to working in both existing and new market places. Cortland has a reputation that is second to none in game fishing. The brand has pedigree, tradition, but above all it has innovation. Exciting times ahead!”
Simon takes up his position in July.
