Designed by Stuart Crofts, considered one of the UK's finest ambassadors for fly fishing. Along with Jeremy Lucas, he was a competitor for England during a period which produced many fly fishing masters. One of our Micro thin fly line range, the Short / Medium Range Dry Fly is designed to overhead cast dry flies and nymphs in overgrown, tight, narrow situations with precise accuracy.

The ultimate in delicate landing, stealthy approach fly fishing.  A line designed for the most difficult fish, the spookiest trout, in crystal clear water and bright sun. Designed to cast overhead but with a 9' front taper down to an ultra low diameter tip, you can nymph in calm or fast water. Cover rising fish multiple times using the ultimate in delicate presentation.

Excellent line

Used my #2 weight Stuart Crofts line for the first time yesterday. I paired it to #3 rod which for me is perfect . The line worked faultlessly in blustery conditions. It was accurate at short and long range , coped really well with the wind . Very happy thankyou

1wt short/medium range fly line

This line is a perfect match for my Sunray 1wt California Glass 8’ rod and the combination performed perfectly last week presenting small dries at close range to rising fish on the on the Wylye accurately, gently and drag free.

Good to hear this Graham. Thanks for taking the time to review, from all at Sunray HQ.

4WT river line

Great line for my 7'6" 4wt rod in smaller rivers. Very easy to cast, I seem to cast further with less effort. I think a 6wt for my other rod will be coming in the future.

2 weight Stuart Crofts’ line

This is my favourite small stream line. Presentation is delicate & it loads quickly for relatively short casts. It also roll casts well.

Incredibly awesome line

I have this line in 2 and 4 wt and they cast a LONG way, are easy to lift, roll cast well and are accurate. I recommended this line to my fishing buddies and will keep doing so. Until you try one, you can’t know, after you do you will be a believer! The pic is of a 9” Creek Chub caught on my 2 wt rid. You can see the gray colored SC line on the reel, which is the point. I was “Creek Chubbin” and had to make accurate casts at a short (20-25’) distance. This line handled that well, too. The closest trout to where I live are about 200 miles away.

SC micro thin

I have just bought my sixth one of these lines.
You have to be sure you understand what you are buying. As long as you do, I think they are good value (especially if you buy them in the sale... sorry JL)...
These lines are over weighted for their designated #wt. This is NOT a bad thing, you just need to know. They compare, weight wise, very similarly to the specialist Rio single handed spey which cost twice as much. However they are slimmer and an appealingly stealthy dull, neutral colour.
Very good for loading a stream rod at close quarters where you are casting at less than 30 feet. Roll casts very nicely. Good lines for the beginner/improver to try if you feel the usual fly line doesn’t seem to give you enough sensation of load or “feel” on the forward cast.
The tip can crack up a bit with use but this doesn’t seem to impact on effectiveness in practice.
As always keep it clean, dry it out and use line dressing regularly.
I have no financial or other interest in Sunray.
