Frequently Asked Questions

Here at Fishing Superstore, we offer a good selection of top-notch fishing lines at competitive prices. We have fluorocarbon and braided fishing line that you can purchase to use as the main line separately or in combination.

What line you should use for fishing depends on the type of fish that you are after. For regular everyday fishing, especially for surface lure fishing, a monofilament line would be a good option. It stretches well and it is “forgiving” in situations where the fish turns out heavier than expected. The reason why it is great for fishing with topwater lures is that it is not very visible on the water and doesn't really sink, so it is very convenient for catching bass and panfish.

Braided fishing line doesn’t stretch, and this becomes very advantageous for deepwater fishing where the line needs to respond to even the subtlest fish bite. If you are after salmon, steelhead, trout and some types of bass and other large fish that live in deep waters or in some structured bottom areas - this type of line would be your go-to.

The main advantage of a fluorocarbon fishing line is that it is invisible in clear water. This type of line is considered to be an all-purpose line among fishermen because it takes the best of monofilaments and braided lines. So if you are not sure about what kind of fishing situations you are going to be in and you need a solid all-rounder fishing line - fluorocarbon might be a good choice for you.

The three most popular fishing lines are fluorocarbon, monofilament and braided fishing lines - each with their own advantages.

Fluorocarbon is considered a relatively new fishing line type that has been improved immensely over recent years, thus gaining recognition among fishermen. Fluorocarbon doesn’t absorb water so its properties don’t change depending on whether it's dry or wet. Unlike monofilament lines, fluorocarbon lines are very resistant to abrasion, temperatures, humidity and UV damage. Depending on the manufacturer, fluorocarbon is most often less stretchy than monofilament lines, which makes it more sensitive to a fish bite. Also fluorocarbon lines can be used both as the main line and as the lead. Overall, both these fishing line types have their own pros and cons however, right now it seems like more and more people are preferring fluorocarbon lines over monofilament lines.
