Choosing the Best Fluorocarbon Leader…

Why use a fluorocarbon leader instead of mono?

Fluorocarbon has several benefits over mono – it’s more abrasion-resistant, and it has less stretch – but the main reason most fishermen choose fluorocarbon is because it’s less visible to line-shy fish. Most anglers would agree that it’s worth the extra cost of fluorocarbon line when it can make the difference between actually catching and simply fishing.

If you’re serious enough about catching fish to go with a fluorocarbon leader, then why wouldn’t you opt for the very best fluorocarbon – the thinnest, strongest, least-visible leader material available?

That’s exactly the motivation behind Seaguar’s new Gold Label fluorocarbon. Gold Label was designed for experienced anglers who know that it’s all in the details, and the most important detail is the last few feet of your connection to the fish of your dreams.

“Knots that I tie with Gold Label cinch down like a dream. I typically tie FG knots for my braid-to-leader connections; because Gold Label is so thin and manageable, those knots are easier to tie than ever. They are incredibly compact and bullet-proof. And the Palomar knots that I use for lures – they are 100% reliable.” -Mark Davis, Seaguar pro.

Seaguar is synonymous with quality fluorocarbon, and Gold Label is 18% thinner than any fluorocarbon leader they currently make. Because it’s thinner, it’s even less visible in the water and it’s more soft and supple. That extra flexibility means your bait will have a more natural action and your knots will be easier to tie and cinch down tight.

When you care enough to fish with the very best, go for the gold. Seaguar Gold Label comes in six versatile pound test ratings, ranging from 15-pound-test to 40-pound-test, on 25-yard spools.
