    Customer's experience

    P. Williams London UK

    - Having used french leaders up until now I know that they are great to use and have no issues with using them rather than the Sunray line. what the Sunray line offers for me is a lot more in terms of versatility, I can easily cast with this line far easier than with a french leader when I switch tactics and nymph in other styles plus it casts a dry fly very well indeed, for me when I go out now I wont take any other lines or reels with me because my Sunray line will cover whichever tactic I need it to.

    The line itself is of course low diameter and as such makes minimal disturbance on the water when using it as a dry fly line, I set mine up with a 2ft section of amnesia sunset in red and yellow with a loop one end to loop onto the fly line and a tippet ring the other end to attach my fluorocarbon tippet which I vary depending on the depth. Today I only used a single nymph and for only a very short time but first impressions were positive, yes I could have used a french leader but for me the line looks as if it will last me longer and has no memory that I've observed thus far, feel is rather like using braid in terms of the feedback it gives, yes its expensive in comparison to the french leader but I'm happy with it."

    MONOCORE JEREMY LUCAS DRY FLY

    I had the good fortune to be demonstrating & teaching flycasting at the Scorton Game Fair 2017,where I met Tom Bell who offered me one of his rods with one of his floating micro thin lines on. I can honestly say I was very impressed with how light & subtle the line was to cast with, not only did it achieve distances with minimum effort & ease but it performed equally well with Ariel mends & roll casts needless to say I purchased a 6# there and then.
    I’ve recently bought the Jeremy Lucas Dry Fly and having used it on my local rivers I can only say it does everything it says on the TIN.It floats high, if you do a smooth lift off you hardly get any surface disturbance, it’s great for accuracy casts, and because it’s ultra thin and a dark brown tip it’s stealth like whilst fishing.
