The High Test Fishing Line is an accessory that prevents fishing line from breaking while fishing when equipped. Without the High Test Fishing Line equipped, there is a 1/7 (14.29%) chance that the line will break on any reel-in that was supposed to yield a catch. The High Test Fishing Line can be acquired as a 1/34 (2.94%)[1] chance reward for completing a fishing quest for the Angler NPC, depending on the number of completed quests and other factors (for details, see Angler § Quest rewards).

The Angler will not give the player a High Test Fishing Line as a reward if they already have one in their inventory or in any of their portable storage items or loadouts. However, if the player has all of the Angler's fishing and informational accessories[2] (or their upgrades like the Angler Tackle Bag and Fish Finder) in their inventories, this rule will be ignored.[1]

  1. 1.0 1.1 Information taken from the Desktop version Desktop source code, method GetAnglerReward() in Terraria.Player.cs. Note that the actual base drop rate is actually slightly less than 1/34 (2.94%), because numerous other rewards are rolled before this item is. The real drop rate will also be affected by other factors, as discussed in-depth at Angler § Quest rewards.
