So very true. As I rock-climbed, so do I fish. Note to self: do not pull so hard when tightening knots in 4lb line.The most important on any line is the knot. Different knots for mono and braid.
A bad knot can reduce the overall strength bu up to 70%. A perfect knot by maybe 15%.
I have read that all modern hooks are made to dissolve in the fish's gut if the fish should break free.
