Monofilament Rig Line
Monofilament Rig Line
Monofilament rig lines are made from a single fiber of plastic. A lot of popular rig lines are made with monofilament because they are a low cost material that has a variety of tensile strengths. This type of line isn’t recommended for deepwater fishing, as it can absorb water, resulting in loose knots. When a monofilament line gets completely wet, it can decrease in sensitivity.
Monofilament degrades with time and there is a chance of structural weakening if the material is exposed to extreme heat and sunlight. That is another reason why monofilament wouldn’t be suitable for deep sea fishing, as you are more exposed to the weather. It is advised that you change monofilament line at a regular intervals to prevent any degradation.
Monofilament lines are one of the most user friendly options you can choose from. A lot of people who are learning to fish use this sort of line because of this fact.

You don’t have to use a complicated knot for it to be a good line to use. If you don’t want to spend the majority of you time learning every knot in the book, then monofilament lines are the best place to start.
Another great aspect of this line is that it is incredibly easy to cut. You may not think this is a significant benefit, but if you forget your scissors or other blade when fishing with a superline then retrying can get very tricky.
