Virtually invisible and proven not to spook fish! Designed to refract light just like water, Berkley®'s Vanish® Fluorocarbon Fishing Line is virtually invisible to fish. Vanish Fluorocarbon also maintains its strength when wet (unlike other lines), casts well, and is sensitive enough to detect the softest bites. Plus, Vanish offers excellent shock absorbency when you set the hook.
Berkley® Vanish® Fluorocarbon Fishing Line
Berkley Vanish "Fluorocardon
This is the only line i use for fishing local Largemouth Bass Tournaments. I have used it for over 5 years with great success. I use 10lb, 14lb, & 17lb; all on my baitcast reels. I DO NOTuse vanish on my spinning reels. I do not use vanish for topwater bass baits, such as pop-r. For all other bass baits, including spinnerbaits, etc. I use VANISH !! After i tie my knot; i test it. THIS LINE HAS NEVER FAILED ME IN 5+ YEARS. Spool your reel correctly, test your knot, & BERKLEY VANISH will never fail you either. Thanks, LLF.

Brittle Garbage With Zero Knot Strength
This line has no strength or abrasion resistance, and no matter what knot used or how well you wet it, it breaks so easy your head will spin. Absolute trash. Go with P - Line 100% Fluoro or Seaguar.

A MIXED BAG!
I filled 3 baitcasters with this before going to Minnesota. Within an hour of getting to the resort I had landed a 10-pound northern with no problem. But a couple of days later I was casting a 1/2 oz KVD spinnerbait and the line broke off 3/4 down the rod, which caused a backlash. Then. when I pulled on the tag end to work the birds nest out, the line broke again. Next day I hauled in a 5lb bass on another reel, and later in the day I was throwing a 1/2 oz Red-Eyed Shad and it broke off at the knot. After snugging the knot up (after moistening it)on another similar lure it broke again. I always check my line for nicks or abrasions after landing fish, and both times the line had been perfectly smooth before I cast it. My verdict is that this line is highly subject to fatigue when it is fished heavily, and fails without warning

I have used Vanish for a number of years and have been perfectly satisfied. Recently, several of my trips have reinforced/increased my feelings about Vanish. Three times in the last month I've been able to bring in big fish though the line was mangled by teeth (a rather large pike) and wood laydowns. I highly recommend Vanish for all types of fishing.

I noticed this discoloration last fall on a fishing trip. I use Kevin VanDams flourocarbon line spray, after fishing with line aweek later and spraying the line with the treatment, it cleared up. Not sure if it was visible while it was stained, but it did clean off and returned to its natural underwater invisibility.
ive fished murky and muddy waters for years and so far with my experience using the flurocarbon line no it dose not effect it at least not enough u should worry about it but if it dose try using reel magic spray on lube it will keep the dirt and muck off the line and it wont be able to stain it
I've never had this problem in my area but you may want to try WD-40 or Goo Gone sprayed on a towel and your line run through the towel to see if that takes care of it. I've had good success with those products for removing a variety of stains and sticky items left deposited on alot of items.
Not reealy that would only affect it if u then went and fished incredibly clear water like say table rock were im from in missouri or bull shoals the line should actualy be less visable due to it take on the water charter risticks but if your still woried about it you can always respoll
well if your fishing dirty or muddy water and your line is muddy probally not but if it gets mud on seperate parts of your line then it does because the fish can se what looks like a pattern of mud wads.
I think that the better question is, does it effect the visibility of your fluorocarbon? The answer yes it will but only it you were to go fish clear water. Even though the line might stain a little I don't think that it would be enough to cancel out the light refraction of the line especially in murky water. I fish inland lakes so I am all to aware of your problem. Also, if I can land bass on braid then I don't think it would pose a problem. Good luck, see you out there!
