Stren Original Monofilament Fishing Line
All-Time Best Fishing Line
Simply the best line ever for my fresh-water reservoir trout fishing needs.
Lo-vis color disappears in green reservoirs. Memory is reasonably low for well over a year. Great stretch is very forgiving. Good performance from -10 to 100 deg F.
My only beef is that we can no longer purchase the 2400 yd. spools.

Stren Clear Blue Favorite
I have been using stren clear blue line for a number of years. I have now retired and my eye sight is not what it used to be. The clear blue is one of the easiest lines to see in all light conditions I have found. I often troll and need to keep the lines separated. The clear blue provides the visibility to allow numerous lines to be fished at one time. I would highly recommend it for visibility, but it is also an excellent performer for strengh, flexibility, casting, and abrasion resistance. Knot strength is also one of the best I have found in monofiliment. Try it. I think you will like it.

Good line at reasonable price
I have been using Stren Fishing Line now for over 30 years. I have used it from coast to coast and off shore. I can say that I have never had the line break that was soley the lines's fault. Most of the time my line breaks were caused by me doing something stupid -- like not setting or correctly setting the drag.
I have used most of the flavors of Stren Line but tend to use Original Stren the most. I like to see myline and find it does not deminish the number of strikes I get. I believe that because I can see the line I get to detect more strikes. Also I like the balance of the line characteristics of Orginal Stren as compared to other lines.
The only drawback to this line I have really noticed is that it weakens rapidly in sunight. If left out exposed to sunlight, it only takes a week or so to weaken the line to noticable decreases in strength. So make sure that you keep your gear stored in cool dry mostly dark place. If go on long trip, take extra line so can replace older lines as necessary.
I recommend this line to my friends and to anyone else who wants a very good line at a reasonable price.

excellent fishing line for the money.
I like the clear blue because you can watch your line for the subtle bites. Excelent knot and line strength.
