Still the largest selling type of fishing line, nylon monofilaments remain popular because they are easy to use, are available in a wide range of colors and are available at a relatively low cost -- even for super-premium varieties. Monofilaments are engineered with more stretch than other types of line, a feature (combined with rod bending) that will help you land more fish.
Tough against all rough or sharp objects. Superior strength to fight fish in heavy cover. Manageable for flipping, pitching or casting.
