Re: Textured or not?
Great stuff as always. I have a friend who fishes Sharkskin lines and they like most have acknowledged, are loud in contrast to other non textured lines. I would guess in moveing water noise of the line would not be so much an issue, if however when in still water that might make a big difference in spooking fish or not. Noise in any form while fishing has always been seen as something to avoid unless like bass fishing or topwater action, that's the point.
I still like line that keeps noise to a minimum and so opt for smooth lines. My friend, he still catches fish with his noisy line, I however, most times, catch more fish, maybe I'm better but he would say he taught me and I'm " lucky!
