Helping a Vine Along Its Way

I've been working on growing this clematis for years and now at the base are some beautiful flowers. I just took this picture today. From the other side of the arch I have another vine, or two of some kind. Whatever it is, it was planted a few years ago and I don't remember it flowering. Anyway to help train the vines along the way I looped lightweight fishing line up and over the cross pieces of the arch to give the vines more to go on. I've helped weave them along as they've gotten longer on the sides and up & over the top. I'll try to remember to take another picture when it fills in even more. Click on the picture and look closely and you can see some of the fishing line.
