WHY USE BRAID LINE WHEN FISHING?

SOME TIPS ON USING BRAIDED FISHING LINE
If you are new to using braided fishing line, or haven't bought your own and set it up yourself, there are a few things to consider. Firstly, braided line is thinner than monofilament. For example, a particular braided line may advertise 6-pound test line, while it has the same diameter as a 2-pound test monofilament line. Thinner line has many advantages, but it is a little more difficult to work with, for instance when tying knots.
Braided fishing line is a strong line ideal for many Australian conditions. Braided line from Rovex, Camo and Shimano tied to a swivel with a uni-knot can be pulled heavily when dragging big fish from the depths. It's worth understanding that braided fishing line has almost zero stretch and can take a little practice when handling big fish. You may want to experiment with drag settings to get the right feel. One chief advantage is the ability to feel subtle bites on the line from virtually any depth.
The biggest drawback of braided line is its visibility in the water. Premium manufacturers such as Daiwa, Jarvis Walker and Shimano are improving the camouflage capabilities of braided fishing line by incorporating colours such as neon lime and moss green. Experienced anglers also recommended adding a monofilament leader to the end of your braided line.
