Choosing What Type Of Fishing Lines To Spool Your Reels With
Choosing what type of fishing line to spool your reels with often comes down to the what type of reel you are using and how you are planning on using it. All reels have specs on that tell you how much line you can fit onto them and then it is up to you to know how you will be using this reel. How you are going to be using the reel can come down to the style of fishing you are doing, or down to the specific species that you are targeting. Below we have included some resources that will help you as you make your decision on how to spool your reel. At the end of the day, spooling your reel comes down to the line capacity vs. line strength decision.

Ways That Anglers Spool Their Reels
Anglers may use one type of fishing line or multiple fishing lines on their reel at once to have the best setup.
Example Of How This Works
Example 1) The Monofilament Topshot:
The monofilament topshot is one way that anglers use two type of fishing line at once. In this case the angler uses braided fishing line on the bottom of the reel and monofilament fishing line at the top of the reel.
Example 2) Straight Monofilament Fishing Line:
The most common form of spooling a fishing reel is to spool the whole thing up with monofilament fishing line.
Example 3) Straight Braided Fishing Line:
Spooling your reel with straight braided fishing line allows you to maximize the line capacity of your reel.
Example 4) Using Fluorocarbon Leader Material
You can actually use up to three types of fishing line at once. In this case you are using a monofilament topshot, braided backing, and a fluorocarbon leader at the end.

Not All Fishing Lines Are Used To Spool Your Reel
Not all fishing line is used to spool your reel. Some is used as leader material to make specific rigs or directly to the hook. Leader material has two main functions. The first function of leader material is to protect you from loosing a fish due to a fishes rough mouth or sharp teeth. The second function of leader material is to make your line less visible in the water.
Leader Material & Protecting Your Line Against Breaking Due To Rough Mouths Or Sharp Teeth
Anglers often use a thin main line and then add a thick piece of leader material at the end of their line to protect it from the teeth of the fish. This leader material can come either in a leader material skein or a leader material coil.
Making Your Line Less Visible In The Water
Another use of a leader material is to make your line less visible then your main line. This can be the case if you are using a colored fishing or are using braided fishing line where the light does not go through your line. If this is your goal you may want to add a monofilament leader material or you may want to upgrade to fluorocarbon fishing line, which is a type of line that is less visible underwater.
