Linen line

5 posts in this topic

I would think so, because they only had silk,linen and cotton back then for fresh/saltwater. Some tournaments (fresh/saltwater) specify what year class gear is permitted. Which i think the difference  would be either soft or hard spun for linen line. Bubs

They guys who build model sailing ships pay stupid money for this stuff - they use it as rigging, looks like antique rope

Linen? Even the oldest guys that are still fishing would probably only go back as far as 45# green spot braided dacron.

But man,I'd love to hear from guys that went back to the linen days so please chime in!!!!!

That would bring me back to somewhere else.

Tarred snells too.

Geez you guys are bringing me back to a real old day,and I love that.

I'm no expert, but here's pics (left to right) of the cotton, soft and color coated hard spun linen on my Ocean City's. Also a hand roll of some coated copper (fishing line).
