Can I purchase leader lines at Anaconda?
Yes, you can. Many anglers believe that the secret to catching more fish is using leader lines. In most cases, leader line, which is tied to the end of your primary fishing line, is thinner and less visible to fish than your main fishing line, resulting in more hits. Also, it is more resistant to abrasion, so in some circumstances it will save your main line from wear and tear.
When should I use a leader line?
There are a few different situations in which you may want to use a leader line. For example, if your main spool of line is spooled up with monofilament fishing line, then you may want to tie on a fluorocarbon leader. The fluorocarbon leader is virtually invisible to fish, which will help you get more hits. Fluorocarbon line is also very abrasion resistant, so it will take more abuse if you are fishing in areas that are rocky or have other rough structures, and thus save your main spool of line from wear and tear.
Some fishermen prefer to tie on a thinner monofilament leader to their main spool of monofilament line. The main fishing line on your spool could be for instance a 12-pound test monofilament and you could tie on a 6-pound test monofilament as a leader line. Again, this will be less visible to fish and can help you get more hits.
Another scenario is that you may want to tie a monofilament or fluorocarbon leader on to your main spool of braided fishing line. In this case, the monofilament line or the fluorocarbon line would both be less visible to the fish than the braided line. Because braid is so visible, it is generally preferred to use a leader line with braid. If your main spool of line is monofilament line or fluorocarbon line, then a leader line is optional.
