When you practice the predator fishing, one is often confronted with the choice of the bottom line. A choice often complicated both the market materials have advantages and disadvantages. The bottom line to two main functions:
-Present the bait or artificial lure of the best of the ways.
-Resistance to the abrasion and especially the sharp mouths of predators.
The best compromise will be certainly down carnivorous line combining a very good discretion with a refraction of low light, for the predators distrustful and fussy as the pike perch for example, but with resistance to all trials against the abrasions of the environment and the time (Sun, water, friction) and against sharp dentures of the King predator, the Pike!
For my part this versatile line down to the fishing of predators does not yet exist on the market: indeed a bottom line in titanium or fluorocarbon of 80/100 intended to Pike fishing will not match fishing for pike-perch that will no doubt see the deception.
So what options we, fishermen of predator? Let’s review it with their advantages and disadvantages.
Bottom of nylon line:
Wire nylon already present since the 1950s, known to all fishermen but which time to exceed by the materials new generation! The index of refraction of light for nylon is 1.53, a very good score allowing him no doubt to continue living in the rays of our retailers.
-We have seen, its refractive index is very good and so discretion is optimal!
-Its flexibility is extreme
-A well known material and evolving in the right direction!
-Easy to handle and great opportunity for nodes.
-Its elasticity is important and for fishing lure is not the top.
-Very low resistance to abrasion and especially Pike teeth.
-Longevity, because the nylon is fragile and porous!
For me line nylon can be used for perch or Pike-perch fishing even if the fluorocarbon is gaining ground, to be completely avoided for pike fishing!
Low line steel:
Probably the most famous of the carnivorous line down. Used for many years without real competitors, the steel begins to have the lead in the wing with the arrival of the titanium or the fluorocarbon! Ideal for fishing for Pike to the quick, the bottom line steel to the advantage of the absolute resistance.
-Simple and often sold ready to use with clip
-Discretion under water
-Gene usually swimming a decoy by its stiffness and weight
A bottom of carnivorous line that still has many fans especially the fishermen to the vivid but who has especially troublesome advantages for certain types of lure for fishing lure! I therefore recommend the bottom line steel for fishing for Pike essentially to the quick.
Bottom line in titanium:
The latest addition to our rays of fishing, bottom line Titanium is an alternative to steel with superior resistance to an equivalent diameter. Another advantage the titanium is more flexible but nodes remain difficult to do we prefer use sleeves that I think offers a weak point at the bottom line. In addition, titanium has no memory unlike steel that should be changed on a regular basis…
-Resistance than steel for diameter
-No memory capacity
-Lighter than steel line
-Still quite expensive rest
-Less than a nylon or fluorocarbon discretion
-A hard material and therefore breaking.
-Master the Assembly of the sleeves
A material freshly arrived on the market who find the audience with the fishers of catfish but struggling to break with the traditional lure fishermen! Its price remains for me a factor blocking, also for pike fishing or very large specimens.
The bottom of fluorocarbon line:
For me the best compromise for a carnivorous bottom line. An optimal discretion with a rate of refraction close to water, 1.42 and especially diameter equal to the nylon upper resistance! Happened a few years ago now on the market, it it very quickly become the reference for fishing for predators to lure. More successfully its manufacturers are many and the choice available is important.
-Flexibility with ease of use of the nodes
-Affordable price for a mid-range offering
-Related to nylon and superior abrasion resistance
-Does not alter a soft lure or fish swimmer swimming
-A high range fluorocarbon is expensive
-In the big diameters stiffness installs and decreases the possibility of tie knots
-Absolute resistance, the risk of failure well that less is always present!
The ideal material for the design of bottom line, it offers flexibility, discretion and especially resistance! Can be used as well on the pike perch and perch with small diameter (20/100) on the terrible Pike in big diameter (70/100 see more!)
At the moment the fluorocarbon is without doubt the most versatile bottom of carnivorous line offering both the security not to leave aside the discretion and flexibility. Meanwhile, steel tends to be replaced by titanium; to see in a few years with the likely lower prices. Nylon is for my part does not exist in my box of fishing because too fragile and aging very badly!
