Monofilament lines are made from a single strand of nylon, offering good strength and flexibility. Braid lines are made by weaving together multiple strands of synthetic fibers, providing superior strength and sensitivity. Fluorocarbon lines are made from a dense and transparent material that is virtually invisible underwater, making them ideal for fishing in clear waters. Each type of line has its own advantages and is chosen based on the specific fishing conditions and target species.

Therefore, it is true that in comparison to age, a female bass is larger than a male.
