For example, when fishing a fluke, many fishermen will use a braided line as the “base” line, or the line attached to the fishing reel. This allows for longer casts, better accuracy, and no-stretch hook sets. For their “leader”, or the line from the bottom of the barrel swivel to the lure or hook, anglers will oftentimes use fluorocarbon line. With this approach the angler’s finesse rig gets the best of both worlds; a strong setup that is unseeable to fish.
Line twist is a big deal. Losing the fish of a lifetime to this common pitfall is no fun and will make an angler rethink the basics of terminal tackle. The barrel swivel is an often overlooked piece of fishing equipment. However, just like other unglamorous aspects of the sport, it is necessary for anglers to know when and where to use this invaluable tool.
