What happened to my line?
I have some 15 lb co-polymer line on my bait caster. Described as mono on the inside and fluorocarbon on the outside casing. Loaded it on my reel in April, used it once with no problems. Then, used it again end of June and noticed on the first cast some "curly-cues" on my line...didn't think too much about - maybe some cottonwood seeds or fuzz from the water. Next cast, more curly-cues...a couple bigger ones. More casts and it was apparent something was wrong. The line seemed to be fraying but not breaking. Curly cues coming off each cast and then I could see it looked like several places the line had actually separated. Inspected my guides, free spool, etc...couldn't see anything snagging my line to cause this.
What am I missing, is there something on my pole or reel that causes this? Could it be the line separated? It hasn't been in the sun or moisture much? Trying to upload pictures.
