Nanophilic fishing line has the properties of monofilament and braid. Called “NanoFil”, this high-strength cord has been manufactured by Berkley since 2011. It resembles a monofil with its homogeneous surface, and a braid in that many thin threads are collected in a fishing line.
In the manufacture of fishing line, polypropylene fabric is used. This thread made of cloth is also called multifilament line (Dynema). A feature of the fishing line is that it is made of several threads, which are soldered into a single whole under the influence of temperature. For this, nanotechnology is used.
The nanophilic line has a small diameter of 0.02 mm, but it is strong and can withstand heavy loads.
Main uses of nanophilic fishing line
- Ultralight – used in conjunction with very light baits, like flies.
- Fishing for flyblowers and ultralight wobblers.
- For jig fishing for predatory fish, a thread with a diameter of 0.28 mm and heavy massive baits are used.
Pros of using nanophilic fishing line
- Hydrophobic – the line does not absorb moisture, and it does not condense on its surface, due to this it does not freeze and does not freeze at low temperatures;
- Durability – resistant to mechanical wear under conditions of correct use;
- Elasticity – although the fishing line does not have a round cross-section, it receives a small load on itself due to the material of the guide rings;
- Smoothness – because of this, the likelihood of wear is reduced;
- Invisible – due to nanotechnology, it is very difficult to notice it in a reservoir;
- Casting range – due to its low coefficient of friction, it can be cast over long distances;
- Not a big cost.
- Not resistant to the appearance of underwater obstacles – in this case, it is easy to damage it;
- Stretchable – stretches over time;
- Has a memory – therefore, it is not very convenient when fishing for a predator, where you need to use massive baits;
- Buoyancy – due to the use of lures with a light weight, the line may not always straighten, it also slowly sinks in water, and in some cases even floats;
- With prolonged use, the fishing line turns from round to square, and then generally flat;
- After each fishing trip, such a line must be cut;
- Over time, the color fades;
- Demanding nodal connections – tying knots on a fishing line is possible in only a few ways;
- Tears at nodal joints.
- NanoFil Knot – This is applied when the bait is tied to a string;
- Double Albriht Knot – this knot is used when tying leashes;
- Double Albriht Knot, Uni Knot, Spider Hitch knots are good for sea fishing.
How to tie the knots is written on the line label. It also contains some tips on how to wind a nanophilic thread. This thread can be purchased at any specialty store. There she is sold in various color variations. Which are chosen by fishermen on the basis of what shade it will be better to mask it in a particular aquatic environment.
The use of nanophilic fishing line among fishermen is new, especially for beginners. Many of the novice fishermen did not dare to use it due to shortcomings. But the high rates that experienced fishermen show with its use inspire many to use nanophilic thread. And manufacturers, seeing such a demand for it, try to remove all its shortcomings.
