Fluorocarbon

Definition of fluorocarbon

Fluorocarbon fishing line is comprised of a combination of organic and synthetic fibers, making it much heavier than monofilament line. The line is denser than water, which causes it to sink relatively well without the added help of a weight or sinker. Fluorocarbon's density allows the line to give little-to-no slack once it is cast into the water. The process in which fluorocarbon line is manufactured also keeps the line very clear and almost completely invisible to fish when in the water. The same process and result also make fluorocarbon a great line to use in almost all water conditions.
