Being an active fisherman that prefers monofilament lines for my ultralight fishing, I really like using the highly visible fluorescent lines. I've used all the major brands in clear and green, but I really like being able to see my line while fishing, especially while float tubing, but these low-vis lines are just too hard to see, especially in certain conditions like cloudy days, windy days, shady spots, etc.. I'm sure part of the problem is my vision, which just seems to get worse every year. I have used these blue and green 2 and 4 lb test fluorescent lines for several years now and I catch a lot of fish,.. they do not seem to shy away from these bright Hi Vis lines, and I'm not just talking about Bluegill, Redears and crappie, but also bass and trout. Some of you guys that know me have seen the many nice panfish and bass I have caught from local lakes and parks with bright fluorescent mono. I've even caught fish in very clear water lakes. There's nothing more exciting (in fishing.. that is, ha ha!) than to be working your un-weighted small plastic worm back in, then to SEE your line jump and start to move off as Mr. Big Bluegill or Mr. Bass takes your bait.
I've met guys that will never use a Hi Vis line, thinking the fish will see the line and not take the bait. Fish don't care about the line, which they really cannot see after a few feet deep, they are just focused on the bait itself, especially if it's a moving bait, like a small jig or spoon. Even with a baited hook on a drop shot rig, the fish don't hesitate to to grab it. Also, I tie directly to the hook or lure. No need for a clear fluorocarbon leader.
Anyone else favor these lines? Sorry for the lengthy post..
