The first thing many anglers do to prepare for their first fishing trip of the year is to put new fishing line on their reels. Choosing the correct type to use can be a complex process. There are three main types of fishing line that an angler can select, which include monofilament, braid, and fluorocarbon. Each of these lines has a specific use.
In addition to considering bait presentation, target species, water clarity, and the line weight, it’s important to consider the line material itself and how it stretches or resists abrasion.
