Maxima Ultragreen One Shot Fishing Line
I light-line fish in the rivers of the Pacific Northwest. I use this line because it never fails on me. I count on it to land all types of fish that swim these rivers. In the fall the hard fighting Chum mix in with the Silvers, so you need to be ready. I run 8lb main-6lb leader because the water can be pretty clear in late October into November. This picture is a 12lb Chum I landed on this line. Not the biggest I have caught on light line, just an example to show you how big the water is and the fish this line WILL land. I give it 4 stars because it is hard to find in stores.

I use this line to build furled leaders for fly fishing. The small diameter of this line is perfect for this use. I have used many other types of mono and this is by far the best. It has just enough stretch during a strike but not enough to degrade it's casting properties. I have not used this line for traditional fishing but would assume that it would make an excellent ultra-lightweight option. In addition, it's color is perfect. The light green is dull and from what I can gather has a fairly low profile in the water. For those who are looking for a great material for building furled leaders this is the product to choose.

I have been using this line for 26 yrs and no other line will ever be on one of my poles, unless they go out of business. I was sold on the product when I had friends in alabama pulling up logs and trees on 10 lb line. It works fantastic when in the water, you will see the line outside the water, but in the water it disappears. In 26 yrs, i have only had the line break on me twice. One time, when a jack fish in GA bit through the line, and the other was the other day when a huge bass ran it against a large sharp shale rock. I recommend this line for all those who want one tough line but not braided.

great strength with low visibility
I just got back from lake Taneycomo and had a successful trip of fishing. I always purchase your maxima fishing line when I go trout fishing or bass fishing at Table Rock. Over the years I have landed numerous 3lb. trout or bigger on your 2lb. line!!! I believe it is a superior product. I use your 6lb. line at Table Rock and catch quality bass on it all the time. The strength and low visibility of this product in clear water is a tremendous advantage for landing more fish than the average angler.
