Well Rope

Well Rope

The past two times I fished in Brazil, I was told to use nothing less than 65-pound braid. I brought several reels spooled up that way, but a couple with 50 as well, and found myself gravitating to the “lighter” line. It casts and handles better, and as long as your knots are good I’ve never had much problem using it for fish in the 10- to 20-pound range.
