Scientific Anglers Mastery Series Fly Lines

 

Mastery lines represent the pinnacle of our smooth line technology. No matter the species, no matter the situation, we've built a line for it. Everything from dry-fly trout purists to pelagic enthusiasts will find the line they need to catch the fish they crave.

 

Mastery MPX

Mastery MPX

Mastery presentation taper

For years, the gold standard in the Scientific Anglers lineup was the GPX taper. From tossing small dries to slinging huge streamers, the GPX could do it all. But all good things must come to an end. Built a half-size heavy, the MPX taper starts where the GPX left off. Redesigned with more mass toward the front of the head, the MPX provides the same benefits of the GPX, with an added emphasis on presentation. The power is still there, only with an added bit of finesse. Meet your new best friend and the best all-around fly line we’ve ever made.

  • The ultimate general presentation line
  • Improved version of the classic GPX taper
  • Built a half-size heavy to load rods and turn over large flies easily
  • Excellent with dries, nymphs and streamers
  • Features the ST+ slickness additive
  • For use in moderate and cold cliamtes
  • Braided multifilament core
  • SA ID - SA MS MPX WF X F (X = line weight)

Mastery Anadro

Mastery Anadro

For anadromous fish and big rivers

If you’re anything like us, the allure of big fish and big rivers is intoxicating. That’s precisely why we created the Anadro fly line.

Mastery Titan

Quick-loading taper for big flies

You’ve got articulated streamers hanging from the lampshade on your desk. You think in terms of black, white, or olive. The term conehead doesn’t refer to an old comedy sketch. We totally get it.

Heritage Ultra

Heritage Ultra

70th anniversary heritage edition

Built off of designs made popular decades ago, the Heritage Ultra Presentation fly line hearkens back to the days before flat-brimmed baseball caps, before Robert Redford’s movie, and before some of us at Scientific Anglers were even born. Ideally suited for fiberglass, bamboo, and slow-action graphite rods, the Heritage Ultra is a true presentation trout fly line. Perfectly at home on small streams and spring creeks, it can be the difference between a fish and a refusal.

Mastery VPT

Versatile Presentation Taper

The Mastery Versatile Presentation Taper, or VPT, looks like alphabet soup from afar, but this acronym truly means something.

Mastery SBT

Mastery SBT

Short belly taper

We’ll get to the point. The Mastery Short Belly Taper, or SBT, is just that: a short-bellied fly line with an extended handling section. That means more mass is distributed to the front of the line, which assists in turning over weighted flies and performing roll casts. Excellent for single-handed Spey casts as well, the SBT isn’t your traditional weight-forward fly line, which is just the way we like it.

  • Short head design with handling line delivers flies at short-to-medium range with extended line control
  • Turns over weighted nymphs and streamers when used with long leaders
  • Non-spooking camo tip, bright coloured belly for easier handling and line control
