Fishing Line | By Don Manning
There are dozens of companies that make fishing line today. Some of the line is good and some of the line is not worth spending your hard earned money on. Experience has proven that staying with the two companies that have been making fishing line since the 1950’s, Berkley and Stren, are a good bet. These two companies have very good line and both make many types of line in monofilament, fluorocarbon and braid.
Berkley makes 14 different kinds of monofilament line for all situations. They also have nine different kinds of fluorocarbon line and nine different kinds of braid. Stren makes six different monofilament line, two different fluorocarbon lines and they just came out with a braid line.
