FLY FISHING GEAR. OUR PHILOSOPHY.
In 2014 we helped change fly fishing and how fishing tackle is sold online. Sunray micro thin fly lines pioneered the movement from heavy, thick fly fishing lines to low diameter fly lines that cast further and land more gently. Our fly rods bend deeper and they protect light tippets. Our goal is to make fly fishing gear that spooks less fish, hooks more fish and lands more fish in a way that is kinder to the fish.
WHAT IS A MICRO THIN FLY LINE?
Floating fly lines contain glass microspheres that make them float. Sunray micro thin fly lines contain fewer 3M microspheres which makes our fly fish lines thinner. We substitute glass microspheres for hydrophobic coatings which repel water. This makes a Sunray floating fly line swim in the same way silk fly lines were used as floating lines. A Sunray PVC fly line can be up to 30% thinner than a comparable PVC fly line of equal length and weight.
SUPER SLIM CARBON FLY RODS
Sunray fly rods use super slim carbon fibre which means less air resistance whilst fly casting. You can cast Freshwater and Saltwater flies further with less effort and present your flies accurately. By using less carbon on the rod blank we can reduce the weight of the rod which reduces fatigue and increases the feeling when playing a fish. Fly casting into a wind is easier with a Sunray rod.
ULTRALIGHT FISHING GEAR
Over the last 2 decades there has been a tendency for fast action rods and heavy fly lines to load them. Sunray fishing tackle reduces drag in air and water. By reducing the air resistance of the fly line you can fly cast further with less effort. By reducing the diameter of a fly line in water, you have less pressure against the hook hold on the fish. You can use a thinner tippet, lighter tapered leader and lighter fly rod.
FIBREGLASS FLY FISHING RODS
The movement towards light line fly fishing has seen the revival of fibreglass fly rods, cane fly rods and bamboo fly fishing rods. Sunray fibreglass fishing rods use the latest fibreglass technology to create fast action, lightweight glass fly rods to cast dry flies, streamers and lures long distances, accurately with ease. Sunray California glass fly fishing rods land double afigure carp & trout up to 15lb on light tippets.
