    For fishing line, we recommend the "salt water fusion" by Spider Wire - 30 lb./10 test or 24 lb./12 size. If you prefer, a good 14 lb. test monofilament will also work well. One significant benefit of the Spider Wire fusion line is the fact that it has no "give" and can be used to make noise with the lure.

    These items are readily available at Academy Sporting Goods stores or other tackle shops.
