  • I was looking through the fishing catalog of a major outfitter. Just for grins i counted the number of different fishing lines

    I was looking through the fishing catalog of a major outfitter. Just for grins i counted the number of different fishing lines - not different weights, just different types. There were 62 different lines. That seems a bit of overkill to me. Is there that much difference, say, between the mono lines or is it more a marketing thing? How do you narrow down what line you are going to buy?

    Overkill, for sure. I don't think there's much different between mono lines, and the only reason I use what I do (Berkeley Trilene), is because it's what I started out using when I was a kid, and I've never had a reason to switch. I mostly use fluorocarbon line now though, because it's less visible in the water. I can't remember what brand it is at the moment...

            I like the kkok brand of line. It’s really inferior to all the others, but the commercials are unbelievable and the packaging is loud and begs for attention.

                Ignore kkok, he's just a troll. Probably a 12 year old kid playing on his parents' computer when they're gone.

                  I have not the slightest what lines are anymore. What does braided line mean like on Berkley fireline? I use that in the highlighter yellow mainly because I can see it when it's in the water. I've been told that fish can't see it....but I still wander why I am not pulling too many fish in from my hook..

                    Officerdom1987, I have no personal experience with braided line, but everything I've read about it suggests that fish can indeed see it underwater, just like people, so if you've been having poor luck fishing that could be the reason. About the only time braided line is recommended is when deep-water fishing or fishing for toothy fish, like muskie or pike, because it's tougher and stronger than single-strand (Mono) lines of the same diameter.
                    I would switch to fluorocarbon line, and see if that makes a difference in your catch, you can't see it under water like braided line, but that's kind of the point...
