Stealthy perfection for rods 9' and under...

We named this line the Stuart Crofts, as he's 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 Stuart Crofts is designed to overhead cast dry flies and nymphs.

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.

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.

Delicate presentation at distance

I have the 3wt SC micro thin dry fly line. It presents neatly. Perfect for those skittish fish that require a delicate presentation at distance. The only thing to note is that you really need 30ft of line out to properly load the rod, but that is what I expected. I plan to carry this spool in my bag to swap on when I encounter those conditions requiring longer casts and delicate presentations.
