    Soft Steel is the best!!!

    I just returned from Cedros Adventures and had the chance to fish Soft Steel Monofilment. I picked up some 100 yard spools of 40# and 50#. I was so impressed with this line, I have never pulled so hard on a fish and not had the line break. This is great stuff, you need to give it a try.
