sinking line -

One thing I noticed right away is that the coating of the line - the sickness--was superb! Casting it is effortless, and it does not seem to "hold memory" (keep loops) like many other brands. It slowly sinks at the first couple feet or so, which is what I want in a fast current, or throwing very light flies. I instruct others, and it has been a thumbs up across the board! I was worried about not being able to see it so well on the water (as it's all black), but visibility isn't a problem. I didn't even have...

Fishing Landing Net -

  This Trout net was purchased with apprehension. I have always had a knotted net. I saw this and thought why not give it a shot. When it arrived I was quite impressed with its construction.

Tippet -

Sunshine offers some great products. I like the product the way it was shipped and quality of the line.This tipper is of great quality. I ordered the x5 line. Very strong and durable. Almost feels stronger than its rated for. It's not big, so it fits nicely in any setup you have. Being a fly fisherman, I dont like to sacrifice quality to save money. So I tool a chance and I'm extremly happy I did. You wont be dissapointed.

Fly Fishing Line -

Received my SF Floating Fly Line WF5 and managed to get a couple of Rainbow Trout on my first and only trip out; unfortunately the camera died on me so I don’t have any action shots and it was very windy so not the best conditions. First impressions are good, a well packaged line with welded loops at both ends for easy attachment to backing line and leader. The line is smooth to cast and floats high. I was able to present flies at an acceptable distance in windy conditions. If you are just starting out in the sport or...
