    Strens big game in solar green lights up like crazy. Almost looks like a neon green rope going into the water.

    Yeah, it's Berkley Big Game in Solar Green. Jason gets a brainfart every now and then......LOL. I also seen Bass Pro Shop's brand name line Excel in flourescent blue, it lights up brighter than any color I've seen so far. My fishing buddy had some left over that he uses for leader material. Man that stuff glows!!! :eek:

    Ande Envy Green, Stren High Impact or Hi Test in neon green and Big Games in solar green. The Flo/Blue works but its no where near as bright.

    I use #2 pure copper wire and an old Army surplus hand crank generator that puts out enough voltage to run a 40 watt bulb which illuminates the wire and allows me to see the shocked fish when they pop to the surface. :0a24: :0a10: OOOps wrong thread!!!!! What I meant to say is any flourescent line will provide some degree of illumination depending on ,your black light and how dark the night is. :D

    Stren Hi-vis gold or Sufix tritanium in neon orange. Any flourescent line will work.

    MacDonalds pickles glow an iridescent green under a black light. So where does MacDonalds really get there pickles from?

    Under a black light flourescent line will glow. It helps with watching the line while fishing at night.

    It also keeps the bugs away (Like skeeters and moths) and keeps the kight down so skiddish fish like the Flathead are not aware of you presents.

    if you can find it Spiderwire (before it made its switch to spiderline ) had a line called fusion... it was not a true braid but it was stronger then its diameter was supposed to be... its a Bright yellow color and should glow nicely under a black light...

    Bass Pro carries "Magic Braid" by Offshore Angler. It's a dacron line that shows up very well under a blacklight.
