A common problem for anglers new to shore fishing is losing tackle when casting, especially when using thinner braid as mainline. The problem is that braid doesn't have the same abrasion resistance as mono and fluoro, and it can also wear through when exposed to rocks etc. While braid is great for casting or fishing on the bottom, if it comes into contact with the edge of a wreck or rock reef, it is vulnerable. So how do you remedy this? The solution is to add a shockleader to your mainline.
