MONO vs. FLUORO: Best Leader Material For Saltwater Fishing
Are you a mono or fluoro angler?
After hearing this, you might change your mind…
We recently had a long conversation with someone high up at one of the top leader manufacturers who told us all about the science behind why their product works so well on the water.
We’re comparing it to what our own tests are showing (which aren’t always matching up with what the manufacturers are saying…) and debating which leader material is best.
This debate was a hot one since half of our fishing coaches are on team fluoro and half are on team mono!
So if you want to ensure that you have the best leader line for inshore saltwater fishing, then you don’t want to miss this.
