Braided fishing line is generally regarded to be an extremely tough material, but you don't need to automatically select the pound test available. Think about the type of fish that you're aiming for. A smaller fish, such as a crappie or bluegill, can often be handled with lighter line, while more aggressive species, like redfish and sharks, will probably require a heavy line that can withstand more tension. Be sure to browse our selection of fishing line to find gear that will be sure to suit your needs.
Braided line is available with different features that can suit a wide range of fishing needs with it's high knot strength and lack of line memory. Some lines are marked or change colors every few feet to allow more accurate lure depth placement, while other are designed for use in both saltwater and freshwater. If your favorite fishing area is in shallow or very clear water, or if you're aiming for sharp-eyed fish, think about selecting a low-visibility color that minimizes the chances that a fish will spot your line before it bites.
