Reel in your catch with the right fishing line.
Find fishing line that delivers up the right degree of sensitivity and smooth, fast line movement. From the popular fluorocarbon to dynamic superline, explore the collection of fishing line:
Monofilament/Copolymer: The most popular fishing line materials made from nylon, which floats. Monofilament line is also flexible, which can help prevent a break if the line comes under sudden stress.
Braided: Braided fishing line has small diameter lines improve strength and maintain durability. The nylon is woven in a braided line to add strength while still keeping the line thin. Braided lines are strong and abrasion-resistant to work well if you will be fishing in cluttered waters.
Fusion: Micro-fiber nylon is fused together to maintain sensitivity, strength and a small line diameter, while keeping the line limp for easier casting and distance.
Fluorocarbon: The latest advance in fishing line and one of the best fishing lines is fluorocarbon line made from a polymer of fluorine boned to carbon. Fluorocarbon line comes closest to the refractive index of water, so it becomes virtually invisible under water, but is visible above the surface.
Diameter: This determines the line's test strength which features improved line durability. Premium lines offer thinner diameters for increased strength and stability, while also providing you with a more sensitive line to help you feel the fish nibbling on your bait or lure.
Abrasion Resistance: When fishing lines are subjected to harsh conditions such as rocks, tree stumps and extreme weather conditions, they need to be abrasion-resistant. We provide line that withstands scuffing, nicks and the normal wear-and-tear from repeated casting.
Color: When looking for the perfect line color, consider finding one that is visible to you, while being nearly invisible to a fish.
- Low-visibility: A stealth-like line that blends into most underwater environments when the fish aren't biting or heavy fishing in the area has made the fish smarter.
- Low-visibility clear: This color works well in ultra-clear water.
- Clear/blue fluorescent: A perfect balance for sunlight to illuminate the line above the surface, while staying clear below the surface.
- High-visibility gold: This bright color makes it easier to see when a fish strikes and to view your line position in a current. This color is also beneficial for low-light conditions including dawn, dusk, and at night.
Density: The density of a line determines how it acts in the water. Some lines are very buoyant, while others sink to varying degrees. Anglers typically use floating fly lines to present dry flies, but this line type also works well with wet flies. Slightly more dense than floating lines, intermediate lines sink just below the surface of the water.
