Fluorocarbon

Fluorocarbon fishing line for sale at J & H is used for leaders, because it is invisible. Manufacturers of fluorocarbon fishing line include Ande, Seaguar, Sunline and Yo-Zuri.

Fluorocarbon fishing line you buy online is typically used only for leaders, but Sunline offers fluorocarbon fishing line for use in freshwater angling. Unlike Yo-Zuri, there is no tint added to Sunline’s fluorocarbon fishing line. Once the fluorocarbon acquires a few nicks, sunlight can reflect in those nicks and make it visible. That’s why Yo-ZUri infuse a pink tint into the line –the pink tint is also invisible in the water, and blocks that sunshine affect.

Fluorocarbon fishing line prices for leaders or for fishing line itself varies.  Fluorocarbon is a mono line – it isn’t braided, and it stretches. It’s also waterproof, unlike monofilament line. Fluorocarbon is great for bass fishing, because it slides easily through heavy cover such weeds.

Fluorocarbon fishing line is not cheap in itself, but because of the technology, it’s well worth the price, especially because it delivers what you need – invisible fishing line that won’t spook your quarry.

Fluorocarbon fishing line for sale is an example of the technology that continues to improve all parts of this sport. However, not all fluorocarbon lines are the same. When fluorocarbon fishing line was first used for fishing in the 1990s, it was stiff and hard to work with, but today that’s all changed. Fluorocarbon fishing line doesn’t absorb water like monofilament line, it stretches (although it takes a lot to make it stretch), it’s invisible. It still takes a bit of skill to work with a fluorocarbon line on a spinning reel, but as you practice, you’ll gain the skill to keep it from coming off the reel.

Fluorocarbon fishing line you buy online varies according to the manufacturer. J & H stocks what we think are among the best fluorocarbon brands out there, however. Since fluorocarbon is heavier than monofilament or braid, it sinks faster and goes deeper. So if you like to fish on top of the water, fluorocarbon might not be your best choice.

Fluorocarbon fishing line prices are higher than for other lines, simply because of the technology needed to create the line. But it lasts longer and, since it’s invisible and doesn’t spook fish, it is excellent either as fishing line or as a leader.

Fluorocarbon fishing line is not cheap, but it is well worth the price. The more you work with it, the more you will enjoy it.
