Tips For Choosing A Fishing Line — Part V

Fishing Line

The fused fishing line is more or less the Cadillac of fishing lines. This particular line has supper strength that the fisher cannot break, and is difficult to cut. The fused line is made from gel-spun polyurethane and when put under heat and pressure; strands with superior strength are formed. When the fisher does not handle a fused line safely it can cut into their hands. This line has no memory, no stretch, and is resistant to abrasion. It will also require a specialize knot when joining lines together. The fused line is highly visible to the fish.

Fishing Line

Fluorocarbon fishing lines are manufactured by using a carbon base and other materials and are used in fly fishing. This type of line is stiff and it will keep the shape of the spool. Many have complained that this type of line is brittle and breaks easily, especially in cold weather. The big advantage of using this line is that the line is invisible in the water. There are many different brands of these lines along with many different prices. It is hard to say what is best for the individual fisher. They just have to try one and test it out. The fluorocarbon fishing lines can be used with a baitcasting reel, how ever it is difficult to use.

Fishing Line

A Braided fishing line also known as a superline is much more common and has been used for decades. This type of line when knotted holds the knot. Its positive uses are that it is a powerful fishing line that does not stretch and will hold its own in power and strength. As good as this fishing line is the one drawback is that it is opaque in the water and the fish can visualize the line. Some anglers will knot a monofilament line to the end of a braded line, called the leader, in order to help make the line less visable to the fish. The braided fishing line can be used with baitcasing reels.

Fishing Line

Fishing line is important and there are four different types of line. The first one is called a monofilament. This type of fishing line is made from plastic and is made with one line of plastic. This type of fishing line can be spun with several lines to make it stronger. These varying strengths are known as tests. Basically monofilament line is lower in cost. It can be purchased in different colors or in florescent colors. Monofilament line can become easily knotted and is not very forgiving in its shape as over time is will adhere to the reel shape. The monofilament line should not be used if deep sea fishing. It is ideal for use with a spinning reel or baitcasting reel.

The Uni Knot

Uni Knot

Uni Knot

The fourth knot to use with a baitcasting reel is the uni knot.

The uni knot is a basic knot and can be varied by the fisherman to meet pretty much any need, in fresh or salt water fishing. To tie the knot begin by running the line through the eye of the hook, at least 6” and fold it to make 2 parallel lines. Bring the end back towards the hook; next, make 6 turns with the tag around the double line and through the circle you formed. Pull the tag to tighten the line, then pull the standing line to slide up to the knot created against the eye. Pull until it is at the desired tightness, trim the tag end to ensure the knot doesn’t slip or come undone.
