- Floating Texture on tip for higher flotation

The All-Round Taper, or ART, is perfectly designed to handle nearly every freshwater fishing situation imaginable. From small dry flies to turning over nymph rigs, the Scientific Anglers Mastery ART Fly Line has the power to turn over any fly without sacrificing delicacy. Built with an extended front taper for pinpoint deliveries, the ART features a muted color scheme with a camo tip for even the most wary of fish. Excels at single-hand Spey casts.
Shop Staff Notes: The Scientific Anglers Mastery ART Fly Line is a big winner for beginners and experienced anglers. The extra head grain weight loads rods easier with more turnover power and the stealthy tip color, textured tip section for higher floating and better mending and AST makes this a high performing fly line. An excellent choice for dry fly fishing to spooky trout (Missouri River!) but has enough oomph to turn over a double nymph rig or a streamer. Just a little less oomph than the MPX but with the added benefit of a gentle presentation. A great choice for those in the market for a do it all line that’s under $80.
Info on the SA Technologies in this line:
–AST: Scientific Anglers’ patented dry-slick technology provides continual line slickness, allowing the line to shoot farther as it moves through the guides. Lines with AST easily shed dirt, algae, and other parasitic drag particles, allowing lines to cast farther, float higher, and stay cleaner than traditional lines.
-Camo Tip: Our Camo technology creates a stealthy blend of muted colors on fly lines, providing much-needed stealth for wary fish, low-water situations, and any time an additional bit of deception is necessary.
-Floating Texture: Featuring microreplication technology, the SA Floating Texture is a radical modification of typically smooth-surfaced fly lines. Its microtextured surface traps air to provide superior shootability and flotation while eliminating line flash and vastly reducing friction. Lines sit higher in the water, offering less drag and water spray, as well as easier mending, roll casting, and pick-ups.
–Welded Loops: Exceptionally slick and strong, our Welded 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 buoyancy for improved fly-line flotation and enables quicker connections between fly line and leaders or Versileaders, or fly line and backing.
-SA ID: Meet the Scientific Anglers Line Identification System. SA•ID is an innovative line-marking system allowing you to identify your lines at a glance. Wonder if a shooting head is 200 grain or a 300 or is that the Mirage LT Reel with the 5 weight or 6 weight line? Just look at the SA•ID. The SA•ID can be found on the first 1-2 feet of the tip section of your line.
