NYLON: SEE ALL THE COLOURS
The choice of line will initially depend on where you're going to position your rods. If you're extending your lines near the edge (about 50 m) and you're fishing in a slightly obstructed spot, nylon is the perfect choice.
A top class versatile line, there is a multitude of types with different diameters, colours and strength. It has a memory and a degree of elasticity. This elasticity provides great sensations during combat and reduces the risk of the fish becoming unhooked. It also promotes a gentle capture of the fish.
A line of diameter 35/100 will allow you to face a large number of situations.
The neon linebrings a real plus compared to a neutral nylon because it facilitates the location of the lines. It also tracks the movement of the fish during the fight.
There is also the line that is visible at night.It contains an additive which makes it able to react to the UV light and thus, be visible in this light.
The Moon Concept line provides a clear advantage for night fishing
In recent years, new completely invisible Fluorocarbon lines have appeared. They are mainly used for making leaders because its refractive index which is very close to that of water, makes it almost invisible.
The first metres wound round your reel should be checked regularly. Indeed, the friction of weeds and stones present in the water can wear out and weaken this part of the line. At any sign of wear, be sure to cut it. Between losing a few metres of the line and a fantastic fish, it's easy to see which one's best. We advise you to change the nylon wire in your reel every season.
Friction against weeds and stones cause wear to the nylon. Check your line regularly.
To ensure that the nylon "ages" correctly, there are some precautions to take. First, you must wind it around the spool of your reel in the correct direction (the same direction as the nylon reel) while leaving the reel free to unwind in the water (in a bucket by example). This practice greatly reduces the phenomenon of twisting. It is also advisable to keep it away from light (ultraviolet) and moisture.
