The Need for a Fishing Line. Taking fishing using a tackle or rods seriously includes choosing this said trolling equipment sincerely as well. A fishing line or rod should be given more attention before getting into the activity itself. Although the fish itself is very important, fishing rods or line must be properly assessed. The monofilament, the fluorocarbon, the trolling lines and the superlines are some of the universal types or kinds of trolling lines or rods readily available in the market. Of course, hearing the terms hook and bait is always related to the art of fishing.
Fluorocarbon fishing line is one of the most revolutionary discoveries for sport fishermen in generations. It has evolved a lot over the last few decades, and the early problems of easily breaking being unreliable have been replaced with one of the best and strongest fibers to ever hit the market. Not only that, but it is almost invisible under water, which increases fish strike probabilities. Today, it is known and renowned for its strength and invisibility. It also out lasts monofilament lines hands down, and according to fans, is well worth the additional cost involved in getting stocked up. Because of its bad reputation from generations ago, people are still reluctant to switch from old nylon to this fantastic material, but once they do, they rarely go back.
The smaller rods and lines in the 1-3 range are particularly suited to small rivers. This is where you need a delicate presentation of small flies on fine leaders and a large clunky line and rod simply wont mange this! However as the flies and leaders get larger and heavier, and the casts longer you will need to start looking at heavier combos. Weights 4 to 6 are good for average size rivers. Once you get beyond size sixes you are into rods designed for large rivers and lakes. Casting heavy flies and leaders into the wind takes some real grunt and these rods can deliver that. Size 8 is generally the largest you will find for trout fly fishing. Beyond this you get into the double-handed rods used in salmon fishing.
Most fly line manufacturers recommend cleaning of the fly line. There is no better time to do this than during the winter, just before to start of the fly fishing season. Make no mistake about it, cleaning a fly fishing line is a tedious task, but if you have ever cast your dirty line, then cleaned it and gave it another go, you would be convinced that this can improve your casting abilities. You may be asking yourself how your line gets dirty, after all your constantly putting it in water. Any number of factors both natural and manmade can increase the friction through the guides and reduce the ability of your line to float on the water. Some of these factors include fishing in cloudy/ dirty water, prolonged exposure to heat, exposure to bug spray or sun screen just to name a few. Not to mention the fact that these factors and many more also increase the chances of a tangled line just when you need it most.
