We offer the finest fishing lines available from the worlds leading fishing line manufacturers. Choose from monofilament lines, fluorocarbon lines, braided lines, Dacron lines, wire lines and various leader materials.
Braided Fishing Line Braided fishing line is made by weaving fibers of a man-made material like Spectra or Micro-Dyneema into a strand of line. Braided fishing line is one of the strongest types of fishing line relative to its diameter. Because of braided fishing lines' small diameter there is little drag on the line due to tidal flow and has become a favorite among fishermen who live line or three-way live bait fish. Also, because of the thin diameter of braided line, the spool of a fishing reel can be loaded with more braided line than is possible with other line types. Braided line offers exceptional casting distances due to its small diameter. Braided fishing line is resistant to abrasion and appears opaque in the water for this reason we recommend attaching a fluorocarbon leader to the line.
Fluorocarbon Fishing Line is made of carbon based polymer materials (Fluorocarbon) to form a line that is almost invisible underwater. Because Fluorocarbon has nearly an identical refractive index of water the line simply disappears when presented to fish in water. Fluorocarbon is inert and will not breakdown or stretch in water or sunlight like nylon fishing line. Fluorocarbon’s density makes it very abrasion-resistant, making it a popular leader material for large sport fishermen. Fluorocarbon clearly offers advantages in sunny conditions, where the water is clear and the fish are heavily pressured -- low visibility and greater presentation. Fluorocarbon that is labeled as Fishing Line can actually be spooled onto a reel and used as a standard fishing line. Fluorocarbon that is labebled as Leader Line or Leader Material is to be used for making Fluorocarbon Leaders to attach to your fishing line.
Because of its increased density you will need to be selective on the fishing knots you use with Fluorocarbon. The Trilene knot is the preferred knot - making sure you make all 5 wraps and adequately wet the knot before cinching the knot closed.
Monofilament Fishing Line Monofilament fishing line is made by melting and mixing polymers and then extruding the molten plastic through a die with tiny holes, forming strands of line, which is then spun into spools of various thicknesses. The extrusion process controls not only the thickness of the line but also the pound test of the line. It is a relatively inexpensive process that results in a less costly fishing line. Because monofilament fishing line can absorb water, caution should be taken when fishing with monofilament in saltwater. Rinsing down your reels spool with freshwater after fishing in the salt will help preserve the line. Unlike Fluorcarbon materials, Monofilament can degrade with exposure to sunlight and degrades over time. Because of this and because of line memory, it is recommended that monofilament line be changed at least once a year. It's important to remember that the cheaper brands of monofilamnent line are not subjected to the standards that the top name brands we carry are.
Wire fishing line is used for trolling applications where baits and lures need to be trolled in relatively deep water to reach the fish. Fishing line wire is spooled on to a conventional reel with a brass spool or other spool designed for wire fishing line. Fishing line wire sinks as it is deployed behind the boat during trolling and drags the lure or bait down to the desired depth. We offer wire fishing line that is marked every 50 feet so you can know how much line you are trolling without using a line counter. Fishing line wire comes in various breaking strengths and wire compositions for you to choose from.
