Scientific Anglers Mastery Textured GPX Fly Line
The Scientific Anglers Mastery Textured GPX Fly Line is one of our best selling premium fly lines. There are many reasons for that. First, as with the other GPX Trout Fly Lines from Scientific Anglers, this one is one half size heavier than the size stated on the box. It is just a little heavier. This line will load your fly rod slightly more and most anglers will agree that with the newer fast fly rods, this is an advantage.
Second, the line is textured, similar to Sharkskin but less aggressive. This line slides through the guides on your rod giving you the opportunity to make long casts. The Textured GPX floats extremely well. There are welded loops on each end of the line. The Mastery Textured GPX has all the up to date features Scientific Anglers has to offer. This is a great line for trout and cool water species. The core and coating are optimized for cold to temperature water. All the features are listed in more detail below.

Textured Line Surface - The Textured Fly Lines represent a fusion of their traditional Mastery series and the Sharkskin series. Precisely replicated hemispherical divots, similar to those found on a golf ballís surface, allow the line to outperform conventional fly lines. This derivative of the wildly successful Sharkskin series have less texture on its surface so it feels like a traditional fly line but performs like a Sharkskin. The result is a line that lasts longer, floats higher, casts easier and most importantly, fishes better.
AST (Advanced Shooting Technology) - Scientific Anglersí patented dry slick technology sets the standards for slickness. Advanced Shooting Technology (AST) Fly Line provides continual line slickness allowing the line to shoot farther as it moves virtually friction-free through the guides. AST fly lines easily shed dirt, algae and other parasitic drag particles allowing them to cast farther, float higher and stay cleaner than traditional lines.
SA ID - Scientific Anglers Line Identification is a result of their labís mission to continually improve their fly lines. SA ID is an innovative line marking system allowing you to identify your lines at a glance.
Streamlined Loops - Exceptionally slick and strong, SAís welded Streamlined Loops produce smoother casts and easier turnover with a seamless fly-line-to-loop transition making for softer landings and cleaner pickups. The sleek design also maintains buoancy for improved fly line floatation.
