I know I am going to sound cheap but I am going to ask it anyway.
I needed some 5x fluoro and I picked up some rio but on my way out of the fly section and passed by an end cap with fluoro fishing line on it. All of a sudden my accountant spiderman sense went off and I lurched to a stop.
Now most of you know what I was thinking. How can 5x 4lb test Rio fluoro be $15 for 27m and a premium brand of 100% fluoro fishing line be $10 for 250 yards?. if its the same lb test and its 100% fluoro then what is the difference?
I do understand the difference between mono and fluoro. For nymph fishing I am totally sold on the fluoro. I bought a pack of the flouro line just to take home and look under the 10x magnifying glass. I can't really see a difference as compared to the tippet material.
Maybe some of you guys can shed some light on this for me.
