- Rod length adjusted taper.
- Micro thin running line
- Micro thin anti shadow front taper
- Micro welded loops
Simple ..buy one .
Memory free , running line resists tangles , shoots like nothing I've used before head diameter is large and coating makes a lot of noise during casting and retrieval , but after an hour of using it matched with my rod a couple of coils of fly line left on the reel every cast .
Lays lovely on the surface very little wake on retrieval , lifts easily for rapid covering of moving fish .
Overhang maker okay I started off looking for it but I found the head loaded the rod so well , after a short while you don't even look for it .
It simply shoots lands retrieves well bite transmission is great and line responds well to being pulled all over the lake .
I'll be having another even at full price 😂
Photo attached , I wasn't even trying felt the like rod kick as the line stopped on thea reel , pulled the rest off kept it like that all day ..
I’ve tried many different fly lines in the past and until about three years ago I was quite satisfied with the likes of the Rio Gold, & Loop Optis, but having purchased & fished with Tom Bells Jeremy Lucas Dry Fly I was very impressed with its performance.
I have now tried the Competition Float and I must say it casts just as well if not even better, the overhang marker makes it fool proof for the beginner or novice it truly flies out,making distance casts an absolute dream.
It’s delicate to lift off the water especially if you use his line slick to combat water surface sticking, with one nice back cast with the over hang marker in the stripper ring you can with ease cast massive distances with ease and grace. All of his lines being slimmer,Spool on most reels allowing more backing than conventional lines. I have to say after fishing with the Jeremy Lucas line for three years now it’s as good as the day I bought it and I am a Flyfishing Instructor so it gets some stick.
I’m definitely going to be buying a Competition Float 2020 and I can highly recommend this line to anyone.

Its hard to believe how good this line is.. but it really is! I was sceptical of the £50 price tag, I mean it's just string coated in plastic right? Wrong!! This line has improved my casting with ease and is worth every penny!
I wore out my first and much loved Sunray #7 with operator error damage. I loved that line and I particularly liked the slightly grey three foot tip which. Made it look like a midge tip but wasn’t. The colour scheme on the new line is different - I am resistant to change so I don’t like it as much. That is the only thing I didn’t like about it though. It floats high and casts like a dream. It is, I think a slightly more of a shooting head style configuration than its predecessor with very thin running line. Heading towards the El Guapo style but with added presentation. I let my boat partner try it, he was using an Airflo forty plus #7, and he was completely converted. Great line.
I will get used to the colour change!
