Can I purchase wire line traces at Anaconda?

Yes, you can. When fishing for fish with impressive sets of teeth, such as pike, using your fishing line alone will not suffice, as these species will make short work of ordinary and even braided fishing line. For this reason, wire line traces are commonly used when these species of fish are in the water. Even if you are hoping to catch other species, pike may still come and take your bait or lure if they inhabit the same area.

Care for your fish

Using a wire trace when either lure or bait fishing also demonstrates that you care about the fish you are trying to catch. By just simply tying your hooks or lure directly on to a monofilament line, species such as pike and zander will be able to cut straight through it. This means you will lose your bait or lure, but the fish, probably not able to shed the hooks, will suffer as a result and possibly even die as it may not be able to continue feeding due to the obstruction in its mouth or throat.

About Halco Supa Snap Traces
