When choosing line for your fishing expedition, youll probably be selecting from these basic types - monofilament, co-filament flourocarbon, braided and fused. Monofilament line can sometimes also be called nylon fishing line. This is actually made out of plastic which is formed into a single strand. When buying monofilament line you can actually get different grades. The premium grade goes through more quality control and is of higher quality to make it more resistant to abrading.
Mono-Fluoro-Carbo What? Help Is Here!. First of all, it is important to understand the different construction materials used in different types of line. Species, depth of presentation, type of lure, size of lure all have a bearing on what type of materials you should be using. If you intend on trolling a spoon or heavier lures you want to have a line with some give so you dont rip the lure out of the Salmons mouth and damage it. Mono-filament has always been, and continues to be, the most popular choice among all anglers (those fishing for salmon included), at least as far as the bulk of purchases. Despite the steady sales in mono-filament line, most people who fish will tell you that mono-filament remains popular only because it is cheaper than other materials; one strand is not difficult to manufacture. A much more desirable type of salmon fishing line is that made from fluorocarbon. Fluorocarbon line is much stronger than nylon mono-filament due to its complex structure (it is also often used in combination with co-polymers). Most importantly to salmon fishers, especially those mooching or drift fishing, is the fact that fluorocarbon reflects light in much the same way as water, and is therefore much more difficult for a salmon to see. This is particularly important when considering leader material for your set up.
Monofilament-- This line is softer than the other two, which makes it more manageable. It does retain water which makes it more likely to float. Mono line is not that durable. So, if your fishing around a lot of cover or anything that would be rubbing your line, mono might not be the best choice. It does come in different colors and mono is harder to see in the water than braided line. Mono has a lot of stretch to it. So when the fish strikes, the line will absorb some of the strike, there will be a little delay before you fill the fish. This can help when it comes to setting the hook. Many people set the hook to soon and jerk the lure right out of the fishes mouth. The mono line gives the fish just a little bit longer to swallow your bait. Mono works good for finesse baits and crankbaits.
Fishing line - its not all the same you know. Sure one would think that you really only need one type I mean all it has to do is support a hook and help you reel in a fish, right? While this is true, there actually are five different kinds of line that you can use depending on your fishing needs. In addition to that, some lines come in different strengths depending on how heavy you think the fish you will be catching will be. While deciding what kind of line to use may not seem important it actually can make a big difference in how the fish sees your bait and also on the feeling that you get when the fish is on the end of the line.
