Researching excellence for more than 40 years.

Since its establishment in Genoa (Italy) in 1973, GRUPPO DP has always concentrated its efforts in the development and selection of a range of top quality products.

The evolution of ASSO Fishing Lines for leasure, sport and professional fishing started in the first half of the 80s and has marked some milestones in the history of monofilaments for fishing.

In the second half of the 80s GRUPPO DP introduced in Italy ASSO DI CUORI, the first revolutionary fishing monofilament entirely made up of fluorocarbon fibers, an absolute technical innovation for the Italian market.

In the early 90s ASSO DI QUADRI, a revolutionary reel monofilament with no memory, redefined the quality standards of the time in Italy and in many European and non-European countries, providing innovative performances.

Today, thanks to decades of experience and collaborations with our field testers and partners around the world, ASSO can offer the widest range of quality monofilaments for leasure, sport and professional fishing.

Asso offers a wide range of fibers, colors and packaging including nylon monofilaments or PVDF (fluorocarbon) and braided PE (polyethylene) products in more than 45 colors with a range of diameters ranging from 0.05 mm to 3.00 mm and also including tapered monofilaments.

The Asso range for professional fishing includes monofilaments for manual or mechanized longline gear, rod fishing, trolling and jigging available in any size and length (skeins, spools, cops wooden large capacity and coils) and in a wide range of colors.

ASSO fishing lines are distributed globally through GRUPPO DP’s commercial network, active in more than 80 countries on five continents.
