Fishing with fluorocarbon line offers anglers a valuable tool that combines stealth, durability, and sensitivity. Fluorocarbon line, known for its near-invisibility underwater, is particularly effective in situations where a stealthy approach is crucial. Anglers should use fluorocarbon line when fishing in clear water or when targeting skittish fish species that are easily spooked by visible fishing lines. The refractive index of fluorocarbon closely matches that of water, making it less detectable to fish.
When using fluorocarbon, anglers should tie strong knots suitable for the line's characteristics, as it to be stiffer than other lines. It can be used as a mainline or as a leader in conjunction with other lines, providing improved abrasion resistance and sinking properties.
