Fishing Lines - Types

Fishing Lines - Types There are many types of Fishing Lines available on the market nowadyas. Some of these are: nylon monofilament, braided, and multifilament. It really depends on what kind of Fishing Line you need and want to have. Here are the advantages and the drawbacks of each type of Fishing Line:

Nylon monofilament Fishing Line
The most commonly used Fishing Line is the nylon monofilament. It is translucent, generally cheap, and is available in all pound-test kinds. It also comes in different colors- white, green, blue, clear, and fluorescent. One good thing about monofilaments is that because it is translucent, monofilament is almost invisible to the fish. Also, it is easy to handle and casting with this Fishing Line can be easy as well. It can be used on Spinning Reels, Spincasting Reels, and Baitcasting Reels. But on the other side, it is not advisable to use a monofilament when you are fishing for deepwater fish, since it can absorb water, resulting to loose knots, and its sensitivity can decrease when it is wet. Monofilaments can also weaken when exposed to heat and sun. Worse is, monofilaments have "memory". This means that they keep their shape if they are stored for some time. In other words, a monofilament stored in a spool for quite a long time will likely to come off the Fishing Reel in coils or loops. Replace your monofilaments at least after every season, depending on how often you fish.

Braided Fishing Line
In relation to its diameter, a braided Fishing Line is the strongest Fishing Line available. It is used mostly for long-line Fishing like deep trolling. Unlike a nylon monofilament, braided Fishing Line absorbs less water, so its great sensitivity remained the same even when wet. It also has no memory, so you do not have to worry about coils. It does not easily weaken due to sunlight. Braided Fishing Lines are resistant to abrasion. However, they are so tough that they can cause abrasion to other things like your hands, Fishing Rod, and Fishing Reel. Likewise, braided Fishing Line is opaque. That is why fish can see it and move away. Some attach a monofilament at the end of the braided Fishing Line to serve as a leader and to reduce the high visibility of the braided Fishing Line.

Multifilament Fishing Line
Multifilaments are probably the newest lines commercially available for Fishing enthusiasts. They are similar to braided Dacron in terms of sensitivity. A multifilament's stretch is very little and this Fishing Line is made up of polyethylene strands which, by weight, are around five to 10 times sturdier as compared to steel. This Fishing Line is excellent when used on conventional and Baitcasting Reels, especially when you are after a larger fish. Sounds great? Yes, these characteristics make multifilaments better than monofilaments or braided Dacron. But a multifilament is far more expensive than its equivalent on monofilaments. Being so thin, just imagine the amount of multifilament you need in order to fill the spool of a reel.

Knowing the types of Fishing Lines as well as their benefits and drawbacks will definitely help you in determining the appropriate Fishing Line. Just bear these in mind before going to the tackle shop.
