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.

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.

StuartCroft line

Hi Sunray Team,
My first impression is Wow.. ! Used normally the other brands , and this Line is so a completely different.
So thin, no memory, and the loop is so slick / smooth !
The loop it self has no ( or little) coating, and the transition to the line is so slick and smooth.
It runs with no resistant through the guides. The loop we all know, are always stiff and do get caught up in the guides,
the coating will brake after a while.
off course the line casts perfect . (use a 7'' #3 Rod)
( also bought the 50yards Backing, also a perfect product.)
Thank you
Best regards

Fantastiic product, changed my fishing !

I paired the #3 SC Dry Fly Line with my G.Loomis NRX LP 8'8" having used DT lines until now. First time out was into double figure wild browns on a large scottish river. I used the line with a 5 1/2 ft furled leader. The line cast very easily with excellent control and mended nicely, accuracy at distance was very good. I had 3 fish after shooting the line a fair bit past the overhang marker, distances I wouldn't have normally attempted with DT lines due to the risk of making a mess, the line cast perfectly. For a couple of hours it got pretty windy, I continued as normal when I usually would have called it a day. Overall the line is a pleasure to use providing a combination of delicate presentation, and accuracy, I honestly didn't think the line would make so much of a difference to my fishing and was a bit hesitant to make the change, very glad I did - excellent product !

I used Line Slik as recommended by Tom, while I can't say how the flotation properties compare to Red Mucilin but I definitely found it much much easier to work with and will also be using it on my furled leaders going forward. I have the World Nymph Line for my Maxia SX 10ft 2wt which I will be trying out just shortly and am looking forward to trying the Hybrid Tippet when fishing dries.

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.

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.
