There is some debate on this topic, but the general consensus seems to be that fish cannot see the fluorocarbon line. This is because the fluorocarbon line is designed to be invisible underwater by absorbing light waves in the blue spectrum.

However, fish can still see objects in the water if they are illuminated by other light sources (e.g. the sun or moon). So, if you are fishing in a well-lit area, your fluorocarbon line will be detectable by fish. Otherwise, they shouldn’t be able to see it.

Yes, fish can see the fluorocarbon line. In fact, they can see it better than they can see the monofilament line. That’s because the carbon-fluorine bond is very strong and resistant to breaking down in the water.

So while the line is invisible to the human eye, it glows under UV light, which is emitted by fish and some aquatic animals. This makes it a popular choice for anglers who want to go stealth mode and avoid spooking their prey.

It is not possible to say definitively whether or not fish can see the fluorocarbon line, as there is no definitive answer to this question. Some anglers believe that fish can see the fluorocarbon line and some do not. There are a few reasons why some people believe that fish cannot see the fluorocarbon line.

First, the refractive index of water is higher than the refractive index of air. This means that light travels more slowly through water than it does through air. As a result, light travelling through water will scatter more than light travelling through air. This is why things look different when viewed underwater – because they are being viewed through a medium in which light travels more slowly.

The fluorocarbon line has a refractive index that is similar to that of water. This means that it should scatter light in a similar way to the water. If the fluorocarbon line scatters light in the same way as water, then it is less likely that fish will be able to see it.

Second, fish have poor vision overall. They do not have the same level of visual acuity as humans, and their eyes are designed for different purposes. For example, many fish have eyes that are adapted for seeing in low light conditions or for detecting movements. This means that they are not likely to be able to see the fluorocarbon line, as well as humans, can.

Third, even if fish could see the fluorocarbon line, they would not be able to see it as well as they can see other things in their environment. This is because the fluorocarbon line is transparent. This means that it does not reflect light, and so it would be very difficult for fish to see it.

There are a few reasons why some people believe that fish can see the fluorocarbon line.

First, some anglers believe that fish can see the line because they have seen fish react to it. For example, they may have seen a fish swim away from the line or strike at it. While this does not definitively prove that fish can see the fluorocarbon line, it does suggest that they may be able to see it.

Second, some anglers believe that fish can see the fluorocarbon line because they have used it successfully to catch fish. If fish could not see the line, then it would not be possible to catch them using it.

Third, there is some scientific evidence to suggest that fish can see the fluorocarbon line. For example, studies have shown that fish can see colours in the ultraviolet range of the spectrum. This is the same range of the spectrum that the fluorocarbon line is fluorescent in. As a result, it is possible that fish can see the fluorocarbon line.

In conclusion, there is no definitive answer to the question of whether or not fish can see the fluorocarbon line. Some anglers believe that fish can see it, while others do not. There is some scientific evidence to suggest that fish may be able to see the line, but it is not conclusive. Ultimately, it is up to each angler to decide whether or not they believe that fish can see the fluorocarbon line.

Though it may seem unlikely, fish can see the fluorocarbon line quite well. In fact, they see it much better than the monofilament line, because fluorocarbon has a higher index of refraction than monofilament. This makes the fluorocarbon line appear brighter and more visible to fish.

There are a few different factors that contribute to why fish can see the fluorocarbon line so well. First, as we mentioned before, the high index of refraction causes the line to appear brighter in water. Second, fluorescence also plays a role in making the line more visible to fish. Fluorocarbon is naturally fluorescent, and when it’s exposed to ultraviolet light (which is present in sunlight), it glows. This makes it much easier for fish to see the line, even in murky water.

So, if you’re fishing with a fluorocarbon line, be aware that fish can see it quite well. You may need to take extra care to conceal the line, such as using dark-colored lures or fishing at night.

To measure how clear or bright the fluorocarbon fishing line is, we used a tester that has blue and red lights. The blue light waves are slightly shorter than the red light waves. When these two colors pass through water, they scatter differently. Blue light scatters more than red light. So when we look down into the water, things appear blue because of the way sunlight is scattered by the water molecules.

The fluorocarbon fishing line is transparent to both visible light wavelengths (red and blue). This means that it should be very difficult for fish to see fluorocarbon fishing lines in any kind of water, regardless of how clear or murky it is.UV rays from the sun are also scattered more by water molecules than red and blue light waves. This is why things look brighter when you’re out in the sun.

However, just because fish can’t see the fluorocarbon fishing line doesn’t mean they can’t sense it. Fish have a lateral line that runs along their bodies. This line is full of tiny pores that are connected to nerves. These pores can detect changes in water pressure, temperature, and vibration. So even though fish can’t see the fluorocarbon fishing line, they may be able to sense it if it’s moving around in the water.

There are a few other factors that can affect how well fish can see the fluorocarbon fishing line. The first is the color of the line. Fluorocarbon fishing line is available in a variety of colors, including clear, blue, green, and brown. The darker the color of the line, the more difficult it will be for fish to see.

The second factor is the size of the line. Fluorocarbon fishing line is available in a variety of sizes, from 2 lb test to 20 lb test. The larger the line, the more difficult it will be for fish to see.

The third factor is the amount of light in the water. In general, the more light there is in the water, the easier it will be for fish to see the fluorocarbon fishing line.

Yes, fish can see the fluorocarbon line. In fact, they can see it quite well. The fluorocarbon line is made of a material that is very similar to glass, so it reflects light very well. This means that when the line is in water, it creates a bright glare that can be easily seen by fish.
