Introduced into the North American market in 1982, P-Line immediately caught the attention of both freshwater and saltwater anglers. Its copolymer based technology delivered a thin diameter, soft, supple fishing line that brought many advantages into one line. It improved casting distances, gave a more natural presentation to lures and baits and allowed for increased line capacity on reels.

Today they continue to meet the high standards and expectations of the serious angler. 

Combining their experiences in copolymer and fluorocarbon technologies, P-line is on the leading edge of quality, high-performance fishing lines.

I have been working with Dobyn’s Rods since the company was first introduced. Dobyns Rods is the namesake of an angler who decided the best this industry had to offer wasn’t enough. Through decades of tournament angling and over 100 major tournament victories, Gary Dobyns amassed an immeasurable amount of experience and knowledge. Since before the advent of Dobyns Rods, Gary poured this experience and knowledge into rod building and in time the “Champion” was born.


Since then Gary continued to push the limits of rod building insistent on adhering to strict design principles and minimal manufacturing tolerances that has raised the level of rod performance and quality throughout the fishing industry.
