Which Fishing Line? Braid vs Fluorocarbon vs Mono

When should you use Braid? When is fluorocarbon better than mono? What is each line for? Matt answers these questions and many more in today’s in-depth look at fishing line. Even if you’ve made your mind up about your favorite line this video is worth a watch, some new technical lines have hit the market that are bridging the gap between line types.

This video goes in depth about all 3 fishing lines. We ignored copolymer for the sake of time as its really just an “in between” between fluorocarbon and monofilament. All of these different styles of line are important. Each one has a place and will increase your success while fishing. But use the wrong line for the wrong purpose and it will give you endless problems. This year we have the added bonus of “shock leader” which is essentially fluorocarbon that stretches like monofilament.

Because this video ran so long we did not include the portion on tying our favorite knots. We’ll release a bonus video tomorrow that shows exactly how to tie a Palomar, double Palomar, San Diego Jam, Double San Diego Jam, and a Blood Knot.

Below is a break down of the different lines and types we use on a regular basis.
