What were you doing in 1971 when Seaguar invented fluorocarbon?
I was not born until 1972, so fluorocarbon is older than me.
What type of fishing line(s) were you using in 1971?
Zip. Nada. Nothing. See answer to first question.
Describe your perspective on how fishing lines have changed over the years since 1971
Fishing lines have definitely become easier for the fisherman to use. There is now less memory in the lines, so you can fish more effectively. Presentations are better, and you can work your baits with more precision. They are also more sensitive, making it easier to feel your bait and detect strikes.
What is the biggest "breakthrough" in line you've seen?
Making fluorocarbon functional as a main line. With the reduced memory in fluorocarbon, I now have improved sensitivity with castability, while still retaining the almost invisible characteristic. Perfect for jigs, my favorite style of fishing.
When did you first try Seaguar fluorocarbon?
I first used Seaguar as a Carolina Rig leader about 12 years ago. It worked perfect for Carolina Rigging outside grasslines in clear water. It worked perfectly for my leader, but I felt it had too much memory to use as my main line back then.
What Seaguar products do you currently use?
I use Seaguar Tatsu and InvizX for most of my fishing. Both have kept the positive aspects of fluorocarbon, sensitivity and invisibility, while eliminating the memory issues.
Which Seaguar product is your favorite and why?
Tatsu is my personal favorite. Its lack of memory allows me to cast further while still retaining the sensitivity and strength that I am accustomed to with Seaguar fluorocarbons. By far the best line I have ever used.
