Fishing line color

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

    I got a question here, it might be meaningless or not.  But, I have always wondered about different fishing line colors.  I use to use "clear," a lot when I fish started fishing, but started to notice every once in awhile the sunlight would refract through it, and basically illuminate it like a neon light.  So, I started to use "green-tinted," lines for example the Yo-Zuri hybrid green or Suffix Siege Camo mono-lines, if anything to make my fishing line a little harder to reflect the sunlight.  I have also seen some lines come in a "smoke grey," and even red (Cajun Red fishing line, I think it is).  I guess a good analogy is gloss paint vs. a flat-paint job on a car.  Do you guys understand what I am getting at?  If so, and you have any good articles about light refraction in different color fishing lines please post them here, very curious to read about them.  Or, opinions let me hear them.

Thanks

Hahah, I guess I left that minor detail out.  The clear lines, I have been using are monos that were "illumnating".  Of course the Yo-Zuri is a hybrid, while the Suffix Siege is mono again.

I use mainly clear mono on all my spinning tackle and use a bloodknot to tie on a 3' leader of the same material just to get rid of the "light piping" effect that illuminates the line underwater. The light cant pass through a knot and if you are fishing shallow, a shorter section of only 6"-18" may be necessary.

I believe that is part of the reason flouro leaders are so sucessful is because the light doesnt absorb into braid.

Supposedly, Blue line becomes invisible before any other color tint.
