Long Line Main line

Postby HydeMarsh » Thu Dec 06, 2018 10:24 pm

Gentlemen,

I am adding a few strings this year and need some heavy duty tarred main lines. All I can find on line is the #36 tarred lines, great for decoy lines but not main lines. Any suggestion about where to get these, I am trying to avoid the pricey Doctari pre made stuff. Thanks for any suggestions.

I've been using the Rig'em Right 1/4" mainline rope 150' spool with good success
Tie decoys in using drops directly in the mainline or use long line clips work well
I kill more ducks in one week on public water than you and your "Crews" or "Teams" would even think of killing all season. I work hard, scout and abide by the law...but still kill the crap out of ducks.

Memphis Net and Twine is where I usually get mine. Unless I need it now and then I got to Ace Marine in Beaufort.

Keller Fishing Supply in Manteo. They have Osprey that is treated with green dip instead of tar. You want #5 or #6.

For longline snaps, Sea and Sound Tackle in Wanchese is hard to beat. They have the Osprey tire cord that is tarred if you don't like the dipped stuff Keller's sells. Same rope, different coating.

ACE Marine in Beaufort. Call ahead and ask for Larry. He will know precisely what they have on the shelf
