I love 10lb ultra green, but I use 8lb from time to time. $hits tough, and its been catching steelhead for YEARS.

Theres a lot of bright fish Jake. You just dont go get them. I havent seen a dark fish landed low on the river down from me in almost 3 weeks.

I am going to have to give that maxima ultra green a try. seems like it is most popular among OFF anglers(probably a lot more too!!) I have not lost a fish on Stren, but have definitely lost some on the flouro.

Might find myself in Tillymuck at least once before christmas too....have a chance at both up there....Stop in Hebo on the way up and whack an early brat then up behind the cheese factory somewhere on a "K" stream to whack a nookie....

You wont look back after you use ultra green.

I've never really understood the fascination with UG. I tried it a couple times, wasn't that impressed. Why does everyone rave about it? Just because everyone else raves about it? I've got Stren xtra on now and I'm getting back way more of my snagged spinners than I did with Maxima UG (Look at the fatigue strength of UG in the link below).

Yeah I like UG because Jo Bobby likes it too...



Ive used stren, with poor results.

I guess thats why theres a big wall of line to play with at the sporting goods.

Some people like to fish with a purple rubber-band on their rod....

I've had good luck with Seaguar Fluorocarbon, but that shizzle is not cheap....or nec. for winters.....

I had a tough time with it. Tough time with Flourocarbon in general though. I like the idea of it. I ended up going up one full size in strength with the Seagur. And then bagged the whole thing because I caught just as many fish on mono.
