Learn about the differences between monofilament and braided fishing line with Blain’s Farm & Fleet.
Choosing the right fishing line can be tough–there are so many colors and types to choose from. One argument between anglers is using monofilament line versus braided fishing line. Both have their pros and cons, especially when it comes to different types of fishing. Learn about the differences between the two with Blain’s Farm & Fleet.
Mono fishing line has been used by anglers for a long time. It’s easy to use for beginners and seasoned fishermen alike. If you’re planning on teaching a kid to fish, you’ll want to start with a mono fishing line. It’s easier to knot, so you can teach the kids a few simple knots to get them started.
While braided fishing line might be harder to master, the advantages that come with it make it worth it. The diameter of the line is smaller, which means you can fit more line on your reel. This gives you a larger casting range when you’re out on the water.
Braided line is also more durable, and won’t have to be replaced as often as mono line. However, that durability does mean that the line lacks some give and stretch. It’s also more expensive than monofilament. You have to weigh how much money you spend on replacing mono fishing line versus what you pay for braided line.
