I Have a New Respect for Stren Fishing Line

Stren Fishing Line

My wife and I decided to hit up a nearby lake this last weekend. The fishing wasn’t just spectacular, but we did manage to catch a few. The highlight of the day though wasn’t us catching fish, it was this guy about 10 yards away who managed to snag a carp. Sure, that doesn’t sound like such a huge feat until you saw the kind of pole this guy was using. It was one of those little rinky-dink poles made for kids or lightweight tackle. In fact, he said he only had 4 lbs test stren string on it as he was reeling in a 20 lbs carp!

He managed to land this thing after about a 10 minute fight. With that said, I’ve never been a huge fan of Stren. In fact, it has probably been one of my least favorite types of string to use. However, I have to say that they either changed something up, or I just don’t know how to use the stuff properly. I couldn’t believe that this guy landed such a big fish on such small string. Props goes to Stren for improving or at least proving their product to me.
