New Fireline fiddling fee foo fum...

I ran my typical tie my fishing knot, the one I am going to fish with. I am impressed with the strength. This line is gonna be awesome for ice fishing. The heavier test# lines were waxy and stiff, more so than standard Fireline. At least the spools I was checking out in the store.

Fantastic line! With use the stiffness goes away. Zero tip wrap, casts a mile, and no fraying from a bobber or the stop.
I am using 20# for steelhead float fishing and have zero complaints.
Our tradition is that of the first who sneaked away to the creek when tribe did not really need fish
