Fishing line deer fence

We're always looking for innovative ways to keep deer out of the garden, so I thought I'd share this example from the blogosphere.  Freshman Farmer writes:
Protecting fruit trees from deer with fishing line

Last year we tied 80 pound test fishing line between posts around the vegetable field and it kept the deer out. They can’t see the fishing line and it freaks them out.

That does sound like quite a simple solution, although I'm sticking to Mark's deer deterrent since it is proven in our high deer pressure area.  If anyone else has tried out fishing line, though, I'd like to hear about your results!
