We also will continue our ACA college program in 2023 to help student anglers prepare for their upcoming season with the highest quality nylon, braid and fluorocarbon. We also want to help them prepare with more information about fishing lines and how to use them. Our website continues to become the #1 source for information about fishing lines to help educate student anglers,” Nobuyuki Kajio, President-Sunline America.
