...never thought of using fishing string.

How do you actually attach the string to the fixture?

I have a 48" ray2 led fixture that I want to hang when I move my setup to another area of the house, but am searching for ideas on how to go about actually hanging it since there aren't any solutions that are obvious to me.

But, the fixture is extremely light and some 8lb line should be more than enough... are you using some sort of eyelets on the fixture? just looping the string around the whole fixture? etc.
