This week we talk about the different types of line.
Pros and cons of each line.
Monofilament: memory, stretches
Pros: Light line, floats and cheap. Cons: memory, stretches and deteriorates in the sun over time.
Pros: Same light refraction, less stretch than mono. Cons: Expensive
Pros: Smaller diameter than mono or fluoro, floats, no stretch, no memory and cuts through weeds. Cons: Expensive, more visible by the fish and weak knot strength.
Uni knot and double uni knot : http://www.netknots.com/fishing_knots/uni-knot/ http://www.netknots.com/fishing_knots/double-uni-knot/
