FAQ's

Match the line weight to the rod rating. For instance, if you have a 7 weight rod get a 7 weight line.

If the rod has 2 numbers on it (6/7 for instance) then match it with the heavier number, 7 in this case. If it's rated 7/8, get an 8 weight line and so on.

Here is a video showing how to use the Overhang Marker®️

https://youtu.be/a76mJbqvA4I

You can find all lines with overhang markers here;

https://sunrayflyfish.com/collections/fly-lines-with-overhang-markers

The number 1 fault we see when teaching is when people slip line into their false casts, lengthening line each time until they have too much line in the air to handle. They think that by increasing the amount of line in the air before you make the final cast, you will get further. This is rarely the case.

The real solution is to have the optimal amount of overhang before you make the final cast.

To start, try using the overhang marker just out of the rod tip, if the cast doesn't work, bring some line in and bring the overhang marker to your hand. Keep trying different positions of the overhang marker until the cast works.

We made a 1 hour livestream on the topic here

https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=842238719878928

If you need more instruction we recommend joining Masterclass here

The best floating line for beginners we make is the competition float line because it has an all round head length suitable for small lakes, big lakes and rivers.

https://sunrayflyfish.com/collections/fly-lines/products/competition-float-2020-with-overhang-marker

If you have only a little back casting space then you are better with the Short Head because it loads the rod quicker and shoots further.

https://sunrayflyfish.com/collections/fly-lines/products/short-head

Both lines feature the overhang marker which is a visual aid that helps beginners and experts alike to make consistently good casts. You can see the overhang marker in action here;

https://sunrayflyfish.com/pages/what-is-the-overhang-marker?_pos=1&_sid=34fe08f40&_ss=rhttps://youtu.be/md65RQwO5ZA

If you feel you don't need a visual casting aid then get the lower cost Proline here:

https://sunrayflyfish.com/collections/fly-lines/products/proline-float

The most used sinking lines are intermediates, however we make sinking lines all the way down to fast sink and you can find those here;

https://sunrayflyfish.com/collections/sinking-fly-lines

That depends on your situation so we made a video to explain the basics here

https://youtu.be/VUUnFZEK3rM

Before every fishing session apply Lineslik to the entire length of floating lines. Apply only to the running line on sinking lines.

At the end of the season wipe the line with a damp cloth on the entire length then apply Lineslik

https://sunrayflyfish.com/products/lineslik

You can find all the specifications on our lines here (the proline is the same taper and weight as the Competition 2020)
