Fishing Line

Our range of Fishing Line has been selected to ensure that no matter what style of fishing you are doing whether it be fishing a small lake for Carp & Tench, boat fishing on a reservoir predator fishing for pike and perch or fishing a large fast flowing river for Barbel, there is a line in our range to suit your exact requirements. There is a large range of different fishing line materials that each have their advantage depending on your fishing situation but all have their place in your fishing gear. These can be simplified to the following…

Monofilament Fishing Line: More commonly known as ‘Mono’ is perhaps the most widespread fishing line used by anglers. It can be used for both mainline and hooklength material. It’s versatility makes it great for fishing near snags or any obstacles in the water, whereas it has a small degree of stretch inbuilt into the line, which is great when landing specimen fish and prevents hook pulls at the net! This mono line also has excellent knot strength making it suitable for a wide range of fishing situations from method feeder fishing for carp to boat fishing for Conger Eels! 

Fluorocarbon Fishing Line: Fluorocarbon lines are loved for their almost invisible nature when submerged. This is due to fluorocarbon lines having a higher refractive index than other lines such as braid and mono, so this line will reflect more light when submerged in water making the line less noticeable to fish, thus offering a stealth approach. A great positive on highly pressured wary fish. This line also has a higher density, so sinks quicker and will ensure that the line remains pinned to the bottom. Additionally, fluorocarbon lines offer excellent abrasion resistance, making them a reliable choice when fishing around any snags such as sharp rocks and debris.  This line is also stiffer, which can be great for anti-tangle properties when feeder fishing, but does make the line slightly more brittle as there is no stretch compared to mono lines. 

Braided Fishing Line:  Braid line for fishing is renowned for its strength-to-diameter ratio, offering a much thinner line for the same test strength, making it a great hooklength material for carp fishing, but also a great mainline when larger distances are required as the thinner diameter line will have less friction going through the rod rings. This compact nature allows for longer casting distances and better sensitivity to detect those subtle bites. Braid lines also exhibit zero stretch, which provides a high level of feedback during the fight.

With a number of keen anglers in our ranks, at Angling Direct we have hand-picked a wide range of fishing line to cover a range of different disciplines including carp fishing, specialist fishing, predator fishing and sea fishing from only the leading suppliers in these disciplines such as Korda, Gardner, Fox, Daiwa and Nash so you know that when you purchase your next spool of line from us, you can have confidence knowing that it will do exactly what you need while being plenty strong enough to land your next PB!

Without the most appropriate fishing line for your own fishing style, you simply cannot expect to improve your success rates and land that elusive catch.

Whether you’re looking for a carp fishing line to target your personal best fish or you’re after a predator line for the finesse of lure movement, you can rest assured that we have just what you’re looking for. Remember, lines can become tired over multiple seasons, especially lines that have stretch and memory, so it’s important to change the line regularly.

What Line Do I Need For Fishing?

There are 3 main types of fishing lines; monofilament, fluorocarbon, and braids all with different weights and sizes that can affect their performance. Your choice of fishing line depends on many things such as your choice of bait presentation (from floats to fishing lures), the water conditions, the species you are targeting, the reel you use, the color of the line, and more!

Fishing Line: Your Essential Link to Successful Angling

In the world of angling, the fishing line is far more than a mere link between you and your prize catch. It's an essential tool that can greatly enhance your angling success. Here at Angling Direct, we appreciate this crucial role and aim to make your selection process as straightforward as possible. Whether you're a novice angler aiming to land your debut carp, or an experienced pro refining your lure finesse, our vast selection is here to cater to your unique needs.

Monofilament Fishing Line: The Jack of All Trades

Monofilament fishing line is perhaps the most common type of line among anglers. Its versatility, easy handling, and general affordability make it a popular choice for both beginners and experienced enthusiasts alike. Mono lines provide excellent knot strength and are suitable for a wide range of fishing situations. However, they can lose strength over time and absorb water, making regular replacement necessary to ensure peak performance.

Fluorocarbon Fishing Line: The Invisible Advantage

Fluorocarbon lines are loved for their almost invisible nature when submerged, offering a stealthy approach to wary fish. These lines have a higher density than monofilament, providing rapid sink rates for those deeper water scenarios. Additionally, fluorocarbon lines offer excellent abrasion resistance, making them a reliable choice when fishing around sharp rocks and debris. It's worth noting, though, they can be stiffer and less manageable than other line types.

Braided Fishing Line: Strength and Sensitivity Combined

Braided fishing lines are renowned for their strength-to-diameter ratio, offering a much thinner line for the same test strength. This compact nature allows for longer casting distances and better sensitivity to detect those subtle bites. Braid lines also exhibit zero stretch, which provides a high level of feedback during the fight. However, the visibility of braided lines can sometimes be a disadvantage in clear water conditions.
