Fishing Lines [Reviews, Tests, & Experiments]

Seems like fishing lines are one of the most overlooked pieces of fishing equipment of them all.

And that’s a problem because the lines we decide to use can make a big difference on our results.

So we build this page so that you can see the latest and greatest fishing line reviews and experiments that we have performed in our grand quest to find the best fishing line for our various needs.

Best of all, this is all 100% free from influence from any corporate sponsors so there is no bias… we gain nothing whether you buy from one brand or another.

Enjoy!
