The Best Fluorocarbon Fishing Lines For Awesome Fishing Results

Updated on December 16, 2010

If you are new to fishing and you’re faced with the tough decision of picking the right kind of fishing line for your fishing equipment, then you should know that there are basically three types of fishing lines and these are monofilament fishing lines, braided fishing lines and fluorocarbon fishing lines. Fishing is one popular activity that people love to do when camping or boating, so if you’re planning a camping trip and you want to go fishing, you might want to bring along fluorocarbon fishing lines.

These ones are great for more transparent water because they do not refract much light. As a result, these lines are almost invisible underwater which also makes your bait much more enticing. The use of fluorocarbon lines started with the Japanese who used it because of its low visibility. Aside from its invisibility underwater, the fluorocarbon type of line also weighs heavier than other lines – a characteristic that makes it sink faster and deeper. That means you get better chances of catching fish in deeper parts of the water.

Aside from that, fluorocarbon fishing lines are also usually made of pure polyvinylidene fluoride so they are denser and they do not absorb water. That also means that that they don’t stretch much so they are more sensitive in terms of conveying the feeling of movement from the end of the line to the fishing rod and they are also tougher and more resistant to damages. That’s also the reason why many surf anglers use this line to avoid line breakage due to sharp rocks.

Here are some of the best fluorocarbon fishing lines that are sure to lure in more fish.
