It has happened to every ultralight fishing angler at one point in time or another. You've finally gotten the trophy fish on the end of your hook, then whammo, busted off. This happens a lot, especially when the fishing is good. You can avoid breaking off more fish by knowing what causes ultralight line to give way so easily.
When people conjure up images of ultralight fishing, they often imagine whippy rods and sewing thread sized lines, and while this is true partly, it is still a far stretch. The types of lines and the rods being used today have advanced dramatically in terms of the technology being used, as well as the materials being used to construct this fishing equipment.
