There are so many different types of fishing line on the market these days. I want to take a look at the difference between monofilament and braid. There are other choices out there — copolymer line, fluorocarbon, hybrid lines of braid and mono — but I want to solely focus on the two basic lines we are most familiar with.

Let’s put the size of the line to the side for now and simply focus on when to use which line. You may be shocked by some of my analogies, but you will find out if you experiment with both of these choices enough that a lot of times it will boil down to personal preference. Your line diameter can take care of strength issues, but like I said, we’ll leave the line diameter out of this conversation today.
