Each kind of line will affect how it appears to fish in the water. If you want a more visible line, then go for a colored line. Mono has the lowest visibility from any line type. Yet, choose whichever style matches your kind of fishing preferences. Choose a neck knife that is well made so it lasts. Your line will endure a lot of wear when using it over time, so it needs to be durable. Additionally, you want to make sure to replace your line on a routine.
Mono line tends to get damaged more by UV light, and wears quicker no matter which kind you buy. Below is a checklist of things to look for when choosing a mono line:. The Stren high impact mono fishing line is available in a range of sizes and 4 color options. The line features shock resistance to battle heavy big game fish. The line also has tough strength for saltwater and coastal or offshore fishing.
Customers who purchased this line liked the weighting with their baitcasting fishing reel. People said that the line comes off the spool without any coiling. Customers also said that there were no problems of it breaking or coming undone. A few customers who used this fishing line said that it has a tendency to twist and snarl off their spinning reels. Some people also said that the line had split ends making it impossible to use. Other customers reported that their line kept breaking while saltwater fishing.
The premium mono line from KastKing is available in a range of sizes and five color options. Additionally, the line has a soft feel for easy knot ties and long casting. Many customers also said that the line was durable and survived some heavier fish. Other customers said that the line cuts into the water fast for long distance casting. Some people who purchased this mono said that it was weak line and snapped on them.
Others reported that the line was not better than generic average line. This Trilene Big Game mono line made by Berkley comes in a range of sizes and 7 color options. The line features extra strength for bonus fighting power against big game fish. Retrieved December 1, Official Charts Company.

Meet the drone that already delivers your packages, Kiva robot teardown. High Earth Orbit Robotics. Now what? High Earth Orbit Robotics July 14, All that said, I still encourage you to give it a try for yourself. I think butt sections and leaders are a individual decision based on preference and what you want to do with the leader.
Domenick, I switched to your system last year and love using it. Thanks for the insight. This was in a fly fishing only section of a stream. What do you do in such a case? Good question. I just trim the butt section back to comply with that reg. You can swap butt sections in and out in just a minute or so. Wrap them up on an old Maxima spool. Domenick, thanks for the continued information through your articles.
I plan on implementing your mono rig system this FY and was interested if you had experimented with braided mono where you suggest using the Maxima Chameleon.
Hi there. Yes, I used exactly that braided mono for a few outings. I still have the large spool of it. I found no advantage to using it. You asked, so I gave my opinion there, but I always encourage people to try whatever you want.
The ultra green is softer and the chameleon is stiffer. I like stiffer butt sections because they perform more like fly line. I find that chameleon is the perfect blend of stiffness but low memory, once stretched. Love your site man. This is a ray of sunshine cause fly line does suck.
Might be fun to compare this to your Mono Rig method. The strength of the Mono Rig is how it performs very much like a fly line and yet sags so much less.
We are truly casting the Mono Rig. The Mono Rig, though, is extremely versatile. I use blood knots for the larger diameters and double surgeons knots for the thinner diameters.
Hope that helps. Have you tried using braided superline, like power pro instead of mono? I actually made a dry fly leader by stepping down cheap braided line lb,lb,65lb,30lb,20lb and so far I like it better than mono.
I started experimenting using it for tight line nymphing and I really like it. If you have a fast rod you might have a problem with breaking tippet though.
One thing people tend to miss is that the Mono Rig allows you to still have a fly line style casting stroke. If the line is too thin, too limp, etc. The Mono Rig as I describe it here, gives you the benefit of fly line style casting but without the excess weight of fly line. So to make that happen, you need a relatively stiff line, like 20 lb Chameleon. Again, Chameleon, and some others, fit that bill. It is hard to quantify just how appreciative I am for this. It has changed the way I fish and increased my success rate tenfold.
I wanted to thank you for sharing it. French nymphing — tight line at distance, upstream with light flies — is part of the Mono Rig system. We fish at all angles, with all weight of flies, split shot, dry dropper, indicators, streamers and more. I actually know a guy who has been doing this for years, i.
I doubt he has knotted together any nifty intermediate leaders sections, for example. He just started doing it as an expedient, and because it was a helluva lot cheaper than fly line. He had a fly rod and reel and needed to make it work.
As he puts it, he likes to actually catch fish in his old age. But I like this idea. I find this all fascinating and completely germane to a good chunk of my fishing here in Oregon, so thank you!
NO NO! Leave the fly line on your reel, so that you can change out from the Mono Rig to a standard leader and still use the fly line for what it does well. I change leaders a good bit, really, especially during hatch season. No point in taking away the ability to be versatile. Leave the line on the reel, is my recommendation — just like you see in cover photo above.
Also, use a large arbor reel, not a smaller one. This because the line will coil less coming off the reel. Much of my fishing is nymphing but just this year I started having success with dry flies.
As a newbie should I wait to try the mono rig? First and foremost Dom…thanks. Around , my father was a Private in the fire department here working for Mr. Brady, Chief of the Fire Department. Brady was firm in his opinions and intransigent in his views as his thought was that a man with an argument could hold no sway over a man with an experience.
We fly-fish the slow moving rivers here for bream, red-bellies, blue-gills and stump-knockers. These are four distinct species with quite different behaviors, physical appearance, environmental preferences and fighting abilities. Power, speed, preference for structure, preference for depth, tell you right away who has taken your lure. The lure we use is top-water. It has a balsa wood body with a feather tail.
The body is about 10mm long and the feather tail is about mm long. Ran across your site about a year ago and have really enjoyed adopting and using the Mono Rig for nymphing. But always seemed to be fighting the fly line sag. With the Mono Rig, the sag is almost entirely eliminated.
The biggest problem I have is the casting. Are there videos that show the mono rig being cast? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
If you cast it like a fly line should be cast, with hard stops at two points, backcast and forward cast, and crisp acceleration in between, the Mono Rig if the butt section is the right material will perform wonderfully. It is NOT lobbing. I enjoy your writing style and your attitude. Thanks loads! Actually, no.
I never have any problem with streamers twisting the line. Do you have that trouble? The only time I experience line twist is with Harvey Wets at night. They have large wings that can twist even thicker tippet. I use 12 lb Chameleon for those! But for regular streamers, I never have that problem. None of my flies are tied in a way that they twist the line like that. I also like to use 2x or greater when fishing streamers. It functions like a fly line much more than a spinning line. We are casting and not lobbing.
Thank you for this site. One question about the leader. Why not just go:. First, if that is the formula you would like to use, then go for it. Try it out, and you may very well like going right from the butt section to a limp sighter and then tippet. I argue this in these Troutbitten article all the time. What you see demonstrated in many videos at at clinics is too often a lobbing approach. There are many good reasons to avoid that and get back to casting.
Thanks for responding. The part about sag makes good sense to me. I may just need to tinker in order to understand. This is absolutely true. The taper does transfer the power better. We actually want to take some of that power out. I find that a short taper helps dissipate the power of the butts section and improves accuracy. But you may not like that. Every situation is different. For example, when I cast dry flies with the Mono Rig, I take most of the taper out.
Enjoyed reading the article. What is a good substitute for the 10 Stren Gold in the mono rig setup? I have a couple questions related to the long mono rig running through the guides:. And if so, what are you using? I fish mostly bigger tail water rivers where the trout have plenty of room to run. Consequently the leader knots may go in and out through the guides several times during a fight with a nice sized fish.
