The key to a fruitful and successful fly fishing trip is to make sure that you have made proper preparation before hand. This means that you should have already took care of what flies, which rod, and which line to use for the trip. The thing about this is that even if youve selected a right rod for the right fish, a wrong fishing line can still let the catch get away. So if you can, do your research before hand and this should take care of a lot of problems that might arise from the trip. This article will talk about how to choose a fly fishing line.
I personally use four pound test for 85-90% of my fishing. If my line is old or frayed in any way, it will cost me fish. The line is too light to be old in any way. Believe me; if I hook into a four pound rainbow trout with four pound test thats more than a month old, the fish will break my line, its as simple as that. When the proper pound test is being used, it must be changed a lot, mainly because of fraying and stretching. When fishing line gets used, it becomes less strong as time goes on.
Variations on this situation occur though when you are attempting to make either quite short or quite long casts. You average rod/line combination is set for about six metres of line being used for casting at any one time. Obviously this amount of line has a given weight. If there is more or less line being used the weight will obviously vary, potentially affecting performance. So if you are using less line, such as when making short casts of fast water, you may want to use a heavier line to get the best from the rod. Or if you are making long casts, such as on lakes or other still water where the fish can see you more easily, you may want to switch to a lighter line so as to not overload the rod.
Fluorocarbon-- Fluorocarbon has what they call " refractive index " the same thing that water has. This makes fluro virtually invisible in the water. So you can already see the advantages if you are fishing in clear water. However, fluro is stiffer than the other two making it harder to deal with. This is referred to as memory. Fluro is more durable than mono, which makes it more suitable for fishing around cover. Fluro has little stretch, so you can feel the fish strike better than you can with mono line. This also means that you will have a quicker hook set so be patient. Fluro does not retain water so it does sink. Fluro is stronger than mono line. If you take 14 pound test line of each and apply the same amount of pressure, the mono line will break before the fluro does.
