What were you doing in 1971 when Seaguar invented fluorocarbon?
I was employed as a Union Bricklayer in Lincoln, NE. I hadn't even fished my first tournament yet, and back then I fished for everything but was starting to focus on Largemouth Bass.
What type of fishing line(s) were you using in 1971?
In 1971 I am sure I was using mono.
Describe your perspective on how fishing lines have changed over the years since 1971.
Huge improvements have been made, now the angler has several choices for different conditions. You have mono, better braid and you have Seaguar fluorocarbon. Anglers have never had it so good in the line category, and the options just keep getting better.
What is the biggest "breakthrough" in line you've seen?
Seaguar fluorocarbon is without a doubt the breakthrough that has made fishing a whole lot more successful. You feel more bites, get a better hook set, and get more bites because the fish just cannot see the line. Bottom line is you catch more fish.
When did you first try Seaguar fluorocarbon?
I don't remember the exact year but I have been using Seaguar for a lot of years. First I used it as a "Carolina Rig" leader, the original leader material was pretty stiff but it still got you more bites. Shortly after that I started using it as a main line and have never looked back. I use Seaguar fluorocarbons for all my fishing, except I use mono for topwaters because it floats better, and I will also use braid for flipping heavy mats and for frog fishing.
What Seaguar products do you currently use?
They are all great products but I mainly use Seaguar InvizX and Tatsu.
Which Seaguar product is your favorite and why?
That's easy, Tatsu is without a doubt the best fluorocarbon ever, all its properties are fantastic. That said, I love InvizX too. The majority of my flipping and pitching takes place with 25 lb InvizX. I get lots of bites and the line doesn't break on the hook set. Tatsu and InvizX are as good as it gets and put me at a total fishing comfort level.
