Fluorocarbon fishing lines gained popularity with fly fishermen and
saltwater anglers early on but are being embraced by bass and toothy
fish fanatics more and more every day. Fluorocarbon line is made by
combining a carbon base and other materials to form a line that is
almost invisible underwater making it more effective in clear water and
on highly pressured fish.
In the beginning many fluorocarbon lines were stiff and keep the shape
of the spool, especially when cold causing reel blow off, especially on
over filled spools. This causes casting problems, birds nests and
general frustration especially on spinning
reels. The lighter versions show these problems less than heavier
test lines but can still be a problem if not spooled properly.
Fluorocarbon lines for spinning reels are best when kept at 10 lb test
or less and for baitcasting 10 lb test
and above. Today, newer processing has developed some very manageable
lines that have incredible resilience, abrasion resistance and virtual
invisibility... all properties that make fluorocarbon the choice for
fishermen whether you are using a 3 lb leader for Rainbow trout in a
river or 8 lb test for drop shotting
smallmouth bass. Even
the heavier fluorocarbon lines excel when used for cranking (10-15 lb
test) or even flipping (17-25 lb test).
Musky fishermen have also
started using 80 and 100 lb test pieces to create leaders for their
toothy targets making them with crimps, high quality
swivels and snaps.
Common problems associated with the introductory version of fluorocarbon
included knot strength which was the weakest part of fluorocarbon. With
today's technology, knot strength is not as much of a factor if any with
some brands. Industry leaders in manufacturing fluorocarbon lines
include Seaguar, Berkley, P-Line and Sunline but with over 50
manufacturers putting fluorocarbon for sale on the market the choices
are endless as are the personal preferences,
