Mono, fluoro­car­bon and braid ex­plained

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

WHAT are the dif­fer­ences be­tween braid, mono and fluoro­car­bon lines, and when would I use each one?

Gerry Han­ton, Work­sop

THE three lines you men­tion are all very dif­fer­ent and will achieve spe­cific aims.

Mono is widely used for main­line and hook­links on feeder, pole, float and big-fish rigs. Fluoro­car­bon is a new gen­er­a­tion of line that tends only to be used as a hook­link, while braid, look­ing and feel­ing al­most like cot­ton, is pop­u­lar with feeder an­glers after bream, or as carp an­glers’ hook­lengths.

See be­low for more de­tailed de­scrip­tions of each one...
