In the past, fishing was considered a type of meditative practice. According to a proverb, "you are catching the time, not the fish."
Recently, fishing has become an urban leisure activity enjoyed by everyone.
Depending on the place and method, fishing equipment may vary.
Perhaps the most important element is the fishing line that keeps the fish attached to the pole.
Nylon, carbon, and ultra-high-performance polyethylene (PE) fibers are the most common materials for fishing lines.
When you look at the cross-section of fishing lines, there are monofilaments with a single strand and braided multifilaments made by twisting several strands together. Monofilaments are single continuous fishing lines usually made of nylon or fluorocarbon. Braided multifilaments are mainly made of thin and high-performance PE material, and are categorized into 4 and 8 stands depending on the number of twisted strands.
As PE braided multifilaments rarely stretch, have excellent tensile strength, do not absorb water, and are strongly UV-resistant, they are widely used for long-distance casting and sea fishing.
