I'm curious about this too. I'm guessing it has a lot to do with the color of the water you're fishing.
Moss green makes the line less visible in most water conditions. However sometimes having yellow is not only easier for you to see your line but is said the fish will follow the line to your bait. I had one year that I had yellow spiderwire and I was catching fish by the fist fulls and nobody else was getting a bite but the next year it failed miserably. I now use only mono and use either clear or green line.
thats what I thought but evryone I see is mossy green or somthing like that. I have some it works well but this one place I went it stood out so I switched to monofilament and my line broke on the first fish
moss green! and if the water is clear use a stren knot to tie a 15 or 20 lb floro leader to your braid. make the leader about 4 feet long.
clear brown or green
