Micro thin fly line designed to overhead cast dry flies and nymphs. The ultimate in delicate landing, stealthy approach fly fishing. Designed for the spookiest trout in crystal clear water and bright sun. A line for the most difficult fish. 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 also. 29' head.

What is the difference with the Jeremy Lucas Dry Fly? Use the Jeremy Lucas Dry Fly with rods 9' and over. Use the Stuart Croft's Dry Fly with rods 9' and under. If the rod is 9', then you can choose either. The Jeremy Lucas has a longer head designed for larger rivers. The Stuart Croft's has a shorter head designed for smaller rivers.

      Our fault

      If the product is in fact faulty you will receive either a replacement like for like product or a full refund.

      Not our fault

      Don’t panic!

      We have been fishing all our lives. We know what is user error and what is not. We are also very fair people. Our default position is to refund and it is rare that a fault has been so clearly assessed as user error we were unable to refund.

      If you are sure it is a manufacturing fault, we will send a postage page tracked postage label.
      Once again, if you have experienced a fault with any of our products we want to be quick to apologise. 

      The overhang marker is a coloured section unique to each line in each weight. We have cast each weight of line and marked where the optimal point is to release the cast, for each weight, in every range, one by one.

      Common Questions

      1. I can't make good casts every time. I can only make them now and again.

      The overhang marker is a brightly coloured section between the head and running line that tells the caster when to release the forward cast. Many people slip line into their false casts, take too many false casts and then release. This means they have too much 'overhang' which is the amount of thin running line between the rod tip and the thicker belly of the line. The overhang marker prevents the caster slipping too much line into their false casts making perfect casts every single time.

      2. Don't all lines have this?

      No, most lines have a different coloured running line to the head. Or, some have a 'haul zone' which is a harder coating between the head and running line. Neither of these help in telling you when to release the forward cast. On every line, in every weight, the amount of overhang you can get away with is different. We have measured that section on each line in each weight and coloured the exact section. That is very different to a generic coating applied to all lines in all weights to prevent the line wearing out (haul zone.) And a different coloured running line only tells the user where the head starts, the user then has to figure out how much overhang they can get away with which is a very advanced skill, most professional casters have instinctively.
