Zero Cork FAQ's


If you mostly fish dry fly, then use the Jeremy Lucas Dry Fly #0. You can also French leader, short / long range dry fly and Czech nymph with it.

If you mostly nymph then use the World Nymph. Designed for World competitors, it's a micro thin, coated level line that gives the most direct path to your sub surface flies.


If you mostly fish dry fly, then use Straight 'n' Soft tapered leaders. They are the only leaders on the market that don't coil. They aren't shiny and they lay dead straight. They are a dull matt grey colour at the butt section and clear at the front.

Typical dry fly setup

Needle knot to fly line or grinner knot to fly line loop
9' 6X tapered leader
2 turn water knot
2' 0.10mm tippet with sz 22 dry flies

If you mostly nymph then use Hybrid. Designed for World competitors, it's fluorocarbon coated mono that doesn't get weaker when wet. Wet knot strength is the variable competitors look for.

Typical nymph setup

Needle knot to fly line or grinner knot to fly line loop
8' 0.12mm Hybrid tippet
3 turn water knot to top dropper
4" dropper 18" from the point
0.12mm Hybrid tippet to sz 16 spider
Point fly sz 14 weighted bug

Customer's experience

I've come down Tom's Sunray range from 7, 5, 2 and now zero. All absolute winners and all more than fit for their jobs. I love the 2 weight because of its adaptability and sensitivity but the zero weight is wonderful. At one end of the spectrum, you can control bigger fish because of the rod's sensitivity at the other end that sensitivity gives more bang for the buck, or should it be ounce, when playing the smaller fish. Sure I can't cast it as far as the 2 weight but I don't need to.
