J & H offers monofilament fishing line for sale from the following manufacturers: Berkley, Hi-Seas and Momoi. Monofilament fishing line was invented over a hundred years ago and served anglers well for decades. However, technology has improved fishing line, as it has improved practically everything about fishing. Having said that, monofilament fishing line still has its uses.
Monofilament fishing line you buy online consist of a single strand of line – usually nylon, which is why it’s called “mono,” for “one”. The alternative to monofilament line is braided line, which combines several strands of material such as nylon into one line, delivering a stronger line. But braided lines are stiffer to use than monofilament, which is why beginners still start out with mono.
Monofilament fishing line prices vary depending on how much of it you’re buying – a quarter-pound spool of line costs less than a 5-pound bulk spool of line. Some spools are sold by the yard, as well.
Monofilament fishing line can be cheap if purchased by the spool, but if you do a lot of fishing, you might like to stock up on as much line as possible. J & H Tackle offers monofilament fishing line in spools to suit any need.
