There will always be challenges whether one decides to fish either in the river
or in the open sea. The important thing to remember is to have patience
waiting for the fish and doing the best to catch it when it appears.

To be able to fish, a person would need to get a fishing license since this is
requirement by law and the regulations regarding fishing varies from one
state to the other.

Getting the right equipment for fishing is also an important factor in making
that experience a memorable one. Using the wrong kind of fishing line or one
that is made of poor quality will cause many problems such as tangles and
lost fish.

There are 4 kinds available in the market. These are monofilament, braided,
fused and fluororcarbon.

The Monofilament fishing line is the most popular of the four since it has
been around for a very long time. It also works well in different fishing
conditions. The problem with this line is that it has “memory.” This means
that it has a tendency to keep to a certain shape if stored for some time. If a
person does not fish often, it is best to purchase a line that is not very long
and it is advisable to change it every time one goes out fishing.

Braided fishing lines are the strongest of the 4 available. These lines don’t
stretch and are quite easy to see since the woven nature of the line makes it
float. The bad part about this line is also about its strength that causes
abrasions on other things like one’s hands, the fishing rod and the line that
guides the reel. As such, one should have the right hardware around when
using it.

Fused fishing lines are similar to braided fishing lines. The only difference is in
the manufacturing process where fused lines are glued together with a
coating applied over it instead of woven. This makes fused fishing lines share
some of the difficulties with braided fishing lines such as making it difficult to
cut without a sharp knife or scissors, its tendency to slide around a bit on the
reel spool and its visibility to fish which will make catching fish a bit
challenging.

Fluorocarbon fishing lines are getting more popular these days since fish are
not able to see it in the water.
