Fishing line will work great
If the wood is still leeching tannin it's still fine to add to the tank. Unless your water I quite soft (will cause pH to drop slightly) it won't do anything besides turn your water a tea color. The last bit of wood I added to a tank was scrubbed and put through the dishwasher to kill bugs (was collected from creek) then weighed down with slate and chucked in the tank.
No pre soaking.
