Of course you don't have to use flouro but it is highly probable at some point over the years that a possible fish of a lifetime got real close to striking but at the last minute turned away because it saw something that just wasn't right.
To a lot of guys they don't care and thats fine, but there are those that want to know that everytime they fished they didn't compromise and at the end of their days can honestly say "i gave it my best everytime out there" so if my lifetime fish didn't happen then thats OK.
Then you have the type that says " i may not have done the little bit extra to make sure i gave it my best, and it very well may have cost me from catching that lifetime fish, but it's good enough for me .
So, what is good enough for some may be far from whats good enough for others. Kind of like the Corporate world, there are those that strive for perfection and those that just try to get by , guess which one usually gets rewarded for their efforts.
