How Is Your Fishing Line Made?




In this article, we are going to cover how the three types of fishing lines are made (not chemical processes but physical processes). 

1) Monofilament Fishing Line

2) Fluorocarbon Fishing Line

3) Braided Fishing Line

Why One Type Of Fishing Line Over The Other?

1) Monofilament Fishing Line - This is a line that is a relatively low cost, has some give and take for the fish's mouth, and lasts a decent amount of time. 





2) Fluorocarbon Fishing Line - A line that is see-through. This is a line mostly used for leader material since it has high abrasion resistance and is more see-through. 






3) Braided Fishing Line - Braided fishing line is like a mini rope. This means that it is thinner for the same strength when compared to the monofilament fishing line, and it has a lot less stretch. While it is expensive, it lasts a lot longer than monofilament but it is a good investment since you will not need to change it as often as your monofilament line. 




So Let's Get Into How Fishing Line Is Made

Monofilament Fishing Line Bulk Spools 

Fluorocarbon Fishing Line Bulk Spools

Both monofilament fishing lines and fluorocarbon fishing lines are very similar in how they are made. While they are made out of different chemicals, they are manufactured in a similar process called extrusion. You've got this huge hopper with a lot of plastic pellets that gets melted down and stretched out like spaghetti.  You will get different qualities in the line, not just because of the chemicals, but also so that it can depend on how the line is stretched, heated, and cooled. 

Braided Fishing Line Bulk Spools

Like the name says, a braided fishing line is a "braid". The process to make this rope is to braid fibers together into one fishing line. Different types of fishing lines have different amounts of fibers that make up the rope.  Braids can come in a number of different braids. Braids can come as 4-carrier, 8 carrier, or 16 carrier braids.  Carriers talk about the number of parts of the machine that hold spools of fiber together to create the braid.  So a 4 carrier braid is made up of four strands. 

To learn more about braids with different types of strands, take a look at the following resource:

Bulk To Small Spool

Once the bulk spool of the fishing line is made, the next step of the process is started. This part of the process is the bulk spool being spooled down into a number of other small spools. This is so that an angler can buy a smaller spool of line if they are not up for investing in a bulk spool of line.
