4 monofilament made of polyamide and polyamide-alloys general until about 1940 fishing lines were made of natural materials the most usual materials consisted of silk gut animal intestines or different kinds of yarn the necessary lengths could often only be achieved by knotting individual pieces together the first synthetic polyamide thread was patented in 1935 abbreviation pa and marketed by du pont in 1939 today this is better known as “nylon” du pont “perlon” ig “dederon” gdr trade name this thread revolutionised angling merely because it was the first infinitely long knotless fishing line plus it had a much greater breaking strain than traditional materials the most astounding fact is that polyamide is still the most commonly used base material when it comes to manufacturing fishing lines the reason is simple in comparison to everything else polyamide has the most favourable properties when it comes to making high quality fishing lines for

polyfilament/braid made of uhmwpe 17 line test comparison of diameters the tiresome trouble with line diameter specifications this discussion has raged for many years see page 31 below the german angling magazine fisch fang featured a very good article by one of its editors arndt bünting with photographic evidence the article confirms what you might have suspected all along to read the full article follow the link test results below is a summary with commentary the picture on the left shows a monofilament with the exact measure of 0.16mm to the right you will find fifteen different types of polyfilament lines of numerous manufacturers all these lines are labelled with a diameter between 0.12mm and 0.16mm by definition some of these should appear thinner than the comparison monofilament with a diameter of 0.16mm the picture clearly demonstrates only stroft gtp r1 first line on the right next to the object of comparison appears thinner to the eye all other lines

30 appendix „memory“ and „line curl“ „memory“ describes the tendency of a fishing line to maintain its most recent shape i.e the coil when spooled on a fishing reel regular use decreases the coil shape so does the very fine indentation caused by tightly spooled upper layers of line on the layers below when spooling the line of the reel it might therefore not feel totally smooth but this effect is only temporary and does not damage the line when in use and reeled off the spool fishing lines return to their „original state“ very quickly particularly in summery temperatures this process can be speeded up by reeling line of the spool and applying strain or stretch on it „line curl“ is different and occurs for instance when pulling line over an edge this line curl is mostly irreversible and can often not be fully rectified if repeated and intensive strain does not straighten the line it will remain permanently deformed in this

appendix 33 the uni knot fig 1 run line through eye of hook and double back parallel to the standing line make a loop by laying tag end over the doubled line fig 1 with monofilament lines make 5 turns with the tag end around the double line and through the loop fig 2 with this in mind it is important to stick to the number of turns one turn more or less can reduce the knot strength with braided lines we recommend making at least 6 turns it can be considerably more if wanted making 12 turns still achieves 90 of tensile strength fig 2 take the line at both ends a and b fig 3 and slowly pull tag end each turn snugs up to the other when done correctly fig 3 eventually the knot will look like this fig 4 pulling the knot tight at this point is very important to avoid slipping of turns otherwise tensile strength loss might occur in the next step slide the knot down to the eye the knot will sit snug on the line and will need assistance in this process therefore grab the knot with two
